The programme to establish four volleyball centres of excellence in four schools across the country will commence in December this year.

Zambia Volleyball Association (ZAVA) General Secretary Charles Hambote said the implementation programme will begin with a five days training workshop scheduled for first week of December.

Hambote told ZANIS Sports in an interview in Lusaka today that ZAVA has since invited Mr. Kare Mol, a top volleyball coach from Norway, to conduct the five days training programme.

He said ZAVA was ready for the implementation phase which he said will no doubt culminate into Zambia producing world class volleyball players.

The five centres are Solwezi Technical School in Solwezi, Hillside Primary in Chipata, David Kaunda Technical School in Lusaka and Choma Secondary School in Choma.

The establishment of volleyball centres of excellence in schools was initiated by the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) president Ary Graca under a programme dubbed "African dream for the development of schools and youth volleyball".

Last week, a three member Zambian delegation was in Zimbabwe for a five days orientation workshop on the implementation of the volleyball development centres.

The team included ZAVA treasurer Nakaonga Kakoma, schools and youth development commissioner, Nyanga Chitambo and technical commissioner Steve Kasinsa.
