Haiti stages Level I Coaches Course
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, March 12, 2014 – The Haitian Volleyball
Federation, with FIVB support, is currently running an eight-day
Volleyball Cooperation Programme Level I Coaches Course under
the supervision of French instructor André Glaive.
Some 33 candidates from all parts of Haiti – such as Cap Haïtien,
Cayes, Petit Goave, Hinche, Gonaives, Dessalines, Anse à Veau,
Bohoc and Verrettes – are taking part in the programme.
Training includes components on elite selection, young players’
development and the use of coaching techniques to stabilize
basic techniques. In this context, the behaviour of the coach
must motivate and inspire confidence in the players, which is
important in order to keep young children interested in playing
Examples in matches, physical preparation and players’ first-aid
on court were also introduced in the course.
Haiti’s national federation, under President Margarette C.
Graham, is doing everything possible to help volleyball grow
across the country.
The qualification of their two national teams for the third
round of the World Championship is a testament to their hard
work and progress.
