“I’m very pleased to welcome all the participants to the FIVB Coaches Course Level 2 despite the fact that the course will be conducted online. As far as I’m concerned, the FIVB Development Centre in Thailand has suspended all activities since March 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and resumed its activity this October. So, this online course, which is approved by FIVB Technical and Development Department, is the second activity conducted this year,” Somporn said in his welcome speech.

“FIVB Instructor Mr Shailen Ramdoo from Finland had been national team head coach in many countries and the FIVB Instructor of FIVB Coaches Courses for several years. He brings with him a wealth of experience and therefore, it’s a good opportunity for all participants to learn from him. On this occasion, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to FIVB Instructor Mr Shailen Ramdoo for your great effort and contribution to conducting this course. I wish all course attendants the best success.”


In his speech, Kiattipong was also delighted to see all course attendants and has pinned his high hope that they will enjoy the course and bring back with them knowledge, experience and cordial relationship after conclusion of the course.


FIVB Instructor Mr Shailen Ramdoo said, “It’s with great pleasure that we can gather again for the FIVB Coaches Course. I think it’s more universal this time because those attending this course are from many countries. I do strongly believe that the course attendants will bring back to your communities experience, knowledge and update coaching information.”

Shanrit closed the session by wishing all attendants great successes, good health and safety.
