Volleyball coaching clinic for teachers

Luciah Phahla

Maseru – The Lesotho Volleyball Association (LVA) is hosting a weeklong coaching clinic at Olympic House in Maseru in an effort to impart skills to primary school teachers.
The workshop, which got underway on Sunday, is expected to end this Sunday.
Speaking to thepost on Monday, LVA technical director John Makenete said the main purpose of the clinic is to train primary school teachers and better equip them to develop players at an early age.

23 coaches are undergoing the training.
Makenete said he is unsure if the LVA would hold the clinics annually as they are being conducted under the supervision of an International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) instructor.
However, he explained the association regularly holds various clinics to arm local coaches with the required coaching skills.

“We are hoping that after this training the participants will be able to manage and coach their teams because most of people who are here are the primary school teachers,” Makenete said.
Makenete said LVA coaches are also benefitting from the FIVB instructed course.
“We are hoping the teachers will learn skills on how to develop players from the early stages at schools, but we also have our senior coaches who also came to learn more,” he said.
Makenete added: “We don’t know if this kind of workshop will be held next year or twice a year or even after two years because we do not have people who are qualified to conduct such training.

“We ask for help from FIVB and when they reply to our request they sent us a trainer. However, during the year we do have our own clinics where we impart skills to the coaches on how they can improve their teams and so on.”
