Guatemala welcomes VCP Coaches Course


GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala, March 7, 2015 – Thirty-three Guatemalan national coaches –including 10 women- are taking part in the FIVB Coaches Course Level One under the Volleyball Cooperation Program (VCP).


The course which runs from March 3-12 is supported by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) in collaboration with the NORCECA Confederation and its development plan in the region.


The course is supervised by FIVB Instructor Ruben Sainz Rodriguez of Cuba with assistance from local technical personnel.


“The course is a complete success,” says Enrique Santis, president of the Guatemalan Volleyball Federation. “Most of the participants are young people with a lot of interest and desire to take advantage of the opportunity of having the course in their country.”


“For the National Federation of Guatemala it is of great relevance to have this course as we will be able to complete the professionalization of our national technical staff,” he added.


Santis expressed his gratitude to FIVB and its Development and Technical division for this valuable contribution to the development of the sport in Guatemala.
