Bangkok, Thailand, November 8, 2020 – The FIVB Coaches Course Level 1 came to a successful conclusion on Saturday in Bishkek under the supervision of FIVB Instructor Mr Nejat Sancak from Turkey.

The course, the first time of its kind in the 90-year history of the Kyrgyzstan Volleyball Federation, had been held between November 3 and 7, 2020 in the capital city of Kyrgyzstan with aims of training local coaches to help educate the players in their country in the best technique, while also helping improve the knowledge and competence of coaches and teachers and develop new coaches to promote the sport further.

All required COVID-19 medical protocols had been strictly followed during the staging of the course to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

A total of 36 coaches, most of them youth and kids coaches, took part in the five-day course which included all aspects of technical and tactical coaching and all participants joined in theoretical and practical parts. They took part in all the drills and practices without showing any tiredness. However, only 27 passed the course tests to receive the certificates.

During the closing ceremony, Mr Nejat Sancak, the 50-year-old from Istanbul who has been first nominated in 1997 as FIVB Instructor by the world’s volleyball-governing body and who participated in different International Coach Clinics in Italy, Switzerland, Sweden and Turkey, mentioned the high level of preparation and organisation and the local organisers for their kind supports.

He also expressed his satisfaction at the end of the course and noted the strong motivation of the participants and in particular the thoughtful questions after each lecture.

Kyrgyzstan Volleyball Federation, with Mr Elmurza Satybaldiev at the helm and Mr Kylych Sarbaghyshev as Secretary General, also expressed its sincere gratitude to FIVB and AVC, IOC and National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Kyrgyzstan for their supports, while FIVB Instructor Mr Nejat Sancak was awarded the 90-year Jubilee Medal of the Federation.
