Bangkok, Thailand, September 5, 2018 – Thailand Volleyball Association President Mr Somporn Chaibangyang and AVC Secretary-General Mr Shanrit Wongprasert jointly opened the 2018 Asian International Referee Candidate Course at the FIVB Development Centre in Bangkok on Wednesday.

The main objectives of the course, which is being held theoretically and practically between September 5 to 11, are based on the AVC 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.

It is also expected that these candidates can obtain experience, extend their knowledge and understanding in further development programmes they will take part in the near future, and become well-qualified to get promoted to future FIVB international referees.

I wish all the participants the best success. I’m sure your journey back home after completion of your course will bring lots of memories.
