SANTO DOMINGO, July 8, 2013 – The FIVB Regional Development
Center in Dominican Republic will conduct an international
course for candidates and international referees at the Juan
Pablo Duarte Olympic Center under the supervision of Venezuelan

the new volleyball electronic scoring sheet and will be
conducted from July 16 to 20 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

knowledge in an official competition,” Ramirez said.
