“On behalf of Thailand Volleyball Association, I would like to express my sincere delight in welcoming you all to Thailand for this AVC International Referee Candidate Course. As a new generation comes of age, it’s an ideal time for all of you to be aware and to change things. I think the potential to be found in new generations like you will help improve opportunities of future referees and we need your help to save the past for future generations,” Mr Somporn said in his opening speech.
The main objectives of the course are based on the Rules of the Games and Regulations to increase the quality of the referees, to make the participants get through to the philosophy of refereeing and give them opportunities to share experience and updates among them.
Furthermore, it is expected that these candidates will gain experience, extend their knowledge and understanding in further development programmes they are planing to take part in the near future, and become well-qualified to get promoted to future FIVB international referees.
