The President of CAVB coaches’ commission, Sherif Elshemerly said he is optimistic that CAVB teams will perform above expectations at various 2019 Age Group World Championships.
Elshemerly stated this at a meeting with coaches of the countries qualified to the 2019 FIVB Age Group World Championships after the 2019 CAVB Coaches’ High Performance Seminar.
“I’m optimistic to see the African teams in their utmost performance during the the world championships which will feature 10 teams in the scheduled 4 competitions, Boys U19, Girls U18, Men U21, and Women U20,” said Elshemerly.
Elshmerly asked the qualified teams to send their preparation programme centrally to CAVB Coaches Commission to do the best for those teams to prepare well for the events and see how they can help them.
Elshemerly added: “We will help the African teams in three main categories, the first is to support with equipments, the second to help the technical preparation through organising friendly matches, and the third is the technical support for the coaches of the teams.”
“We are also projecting good help for the coaches especially during the Girls’ U18 in Egypt and Boys’ U19 in Tunisia due to the great coaching experiences in those countries as advised by CAVB President Dr Amr Elwani who supported our vision to develop the African teams internationally.
