While Uganda still has one hurdle to jump if they are to be at the World Championship in Italy this September, the Netherlands has already secured their ticket.

“The trip will prepare us physiologically going into the qualifiers in Nairobi,” said Uganda’s coach Tony Lakony.

“When you look at their facilities and expertise, we will without a doubt benefit from the trip.”

The team will leave on January 19 and has close to seven trial games lined up for their time in the Netherlands.

The games we are going to play are on the same scale or even more to what we are going to face in Nairobi,” Lakony added.

Uganda is going to play against top flight clubs from the Dutch league and universities.

Lakony also revealed that the top players from the Dutch national team will hold sessions with their Ugandan counterparts.

“For our team to be handled by coaches and players who coach and play volleyball at a high level is really awesome.”

“I’m optimistic the by the time we come back, we will be a totally different side,” Lakony added.

In another development, setter Vero Nyiramugisha was dropped from the team reducing the numbers of players in the training session to 13.

Team selected

Setters: Eunice Nuwabigaba, Milly Laker
Middle blockers: Saidat Nningi, Christine Alupo, Irene Adeke, Namajja Farida, Esther Tumwebaze
Attackers: Josephine Nammanda, Maureen Mwamula, Astreede Agaaba, Eunice Amorun
Liberos: Flavia Nandawula, Shila Omuriwe
