The Nigeria Volleyball Federation (NVBF) is thinking about hiring a foreign Technical Adviser to pilot the team to next year’s Africa Beach Nations Cup as well as the U19 Men’s World Championships.
NVBF president Engineer Musa Nimrod disclosed this to www.aclsports.com on Friday.
Nimrod said the Confederation of Africa Volleyball is willing to help Nigeria achieve the task adding that the federation was prepared with the right vision to place the country’s volleyball on a new pedestal.
“We shall be engaging the services of a foreign Technical Adviser. Our vision is to immediately re-position our national teams to satisfy the high expectations of our beloved nation in every outing. We are prepared to place the country’s volleyball on a new pedestal.
He said, “During the recently concluded U21 men’s African Nations Cup most of the countries made use of the VIS technology which Nigeria never had. Our hope is for the technical adviser to impact more volleyball knowledge into the indigenous coaches during his stay”.
“The challenges ahead are enormous, especially that of participation in the U19 Men’s World Championships itself. But we are determined to take courageous steps and far reaching decisions that will continue to give our teams good fortune in all tournaments”, Nimrod said.
