Bangkok, Thailand, May 23, 2017 – The Asian Refereeing Candidate Course is being held from May 23 to 29 at the FIVB Development Center in Thailand within the Sports Office of Ramkhamhaeng University, with 24 referees from 15 National Federations taking part.

The one-week seminar, which is jointly conducted by Course Instructor and AVC Referees Committee Chairman Mr Songsak Chareonpong and AVC Referees Committee Member Mr Abdullah Alenezi from Kuwait, is divided into theoretical and practical parts. As the theoretical part takes place at the Sports Office of Ramkhamhaeng University, the practical session is held at the Ramkhamhaeng Gymnasium.

The main objective of the seminar is to help National Federations for Category 1 and 2 which have no international referees gain a better chance of preparing well-trained referees to accompany their teams in future AVC competitions. More importantly, it is expected that following the seminar, these candidates can obtain experience and exposure, extend their knowledge and understanding in further development courses they will take part in and get promoted to FIVB international referees in the near future.

Those participating in the course are 24 candidates from 15 countries including 17 men. The participating National Federations included Bangladesh, Malaysia, Mongolia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Singapore, Turkmenistan, Vietnam and Thailand.

Mr Chai Nimakorn, Director of the FIVB Development Centre in Thailand, presided over the opening ceremony on May 23, with Jaksuwan Tocharoen, Secretary-General of the Thailand Volleyball Association, in attendance as guest of honour.
