A four day volleyball training program was completed in The Gambia on March 19 in collaboration with the FIVB’s Development Centre in Dakar, Senegal.



The program began with theoretical sessions focusing on improving the knowledge base of participants. 

However, the emphasis was on the practical sessions which were conducted in three volleyball academies across the country in Banjul, Jeshwang and Serekunda East. Over 100 children participated with coaches conducting training sessions.

From what I gathered over the last four days, Gambian volleyball has a good future if the work started by the coaches here continues,FIVB instructor Mbaye Deme said.

The level of the children in all the academies is amazing and I was impressed with the attachment and discipline the children have to the game. They were all very enthusiastic and the response level was really good. If the current trend continues in The Gambia volleyball will be among the leading sports in the country and the country will inevitably match the level of other African countries. The development of the coaches running the volleyball programs in the respective academies is key in the Gambian crusade to develop volleyball.

He also advised the inclusion of girls at all levels of volleyball development in the country and the organization of more competitions at youth and junior level.
