The head coach of Nigeria U19 Girls’ team, Elishama Elam has unveiled his squad for the 2022 Girls’ U19 African Nations Volleyball Championship in Nigeria.
The 2022 Girls’ U19 African Nations Volleyball Championship is scheduled for 30th August to 10th September in Abuja, Nigeria.
The COAS Spikers gaffer named 14 players in the squad and will be assisted in the coaching crew by Tina Azomani (Delta Force) and the new Technical adviser, Alex Boskovic.
Elam revealed that the best players were selected after two months of camp and training at Ahmadu Bello Stadium (ABS) in Kaduna state.
He said the players are ready to make Nigeria proud at the championship adding that the team is fully prepared for any team.
Elam said, “After 6 weeks of preparations, we are ready for the 2022 Girls’ U19 African Nations Volleyball Championship. The girls have been active throughout this year; some of them played at the National Division 1 League; while others played in several invitational championships including beach championship.
“I was the head coach of the Nigeria U19 Girls when Cameroon defeated us in three games; this will not repeat itself again. Nigeria is better prepared and will put in her best at this year’s championship. In the coaching crew is the new Technical Adviser, Alex Boskovic and I am sure his tactical experience will be the joker for the country”.
