Bangkok, Thailand, October 10, 2022 – The FIVB Level-2 Coaches Course is now under way at the FIVB Development Centre in Thailand, with a total of 21 preferably active candidates from Hong Kong China, Indonesia, Scotland, Singapore and Thailand including six females taking part and FIVB Course Instructor Mr Bojan Mirkovic from Croatia directing the October 10-14 course, theoretically and practically.

The objectives of the five-day workshop are for the candidates to improve their knowledge and competence so that they may gain recognition as FIVB coaches in the near future, to establish, as much as possible, a unified system for training coaches in all zones and to exchange ideas and experiences among them.

Candidates stood a chance to learn theory of training, pedagogical aspects and planning as well as physical preparation, modern technical skills, how to teach skills, specialisation and universalisation, advanced tactics and various coaching aspects which provide a higher level of coaching for improved competition and enjoyment of this team-oriented, non-contact sport.
