What a superb couple of weeks it has been for our officials. Over the last two weekends we have seen Geri Dahle and Vangelis Koutouleas both fly in from Europe to support the development of our members in both refereeing and coaching.
August 28th & 29th
Geir, a CEV delegate and FIVB instructor accepted our invitation to lead our first beach volleyball referee course. Eight referees were selected to take part in the course and over two days at the Bettystown Blast they were supported and instructed by one of the very best in the game.
September 4th & 5th
Vangelis, also an FIVB instructor and highly respected professional coach joined with our Tier 3 coaches to help provide a better understanding of the game on a higher level. Twelve coaches were selected to take part in this incredible opportunity.
The Education & Training Commission thank both instructors for their precious time and congratulate those who took part in the sessions. These courses have also undoubtedly helped our own instructors who provide continuous support and courses for new and existing officials throughout the year.
