After their stakeholder’s meeting held in Ho on Sunday, March 11, the Volta Regional Volleyball Association has scheduled a refresher course for referees in April this year.
The course has become very necessary as the Executives seek to improve the effectiveness level of their officiating official. The course which sees a participant paying an amount of GH₵100.00 is scheduled to come off in Ho at a yet to be named venue on April 27&28, with a closing date of registration pegged on Saturday, April 14. The course adds up to the one held in January by the Ghana Education Service in Kpando, Kadjebi and Sogakope.
Yet, at the stakeholders meeting, a 5 member ‘Oversight Committee’ was set up to look for a suitable date and venue for the one day Gala to select a regional team. The date and venue will be arrived at depending on the number of clubs who will show interest.
The committee has also been tasked to look for sponsorship for the hosting of the Southern Sector Volleyball Championship in June, July. They will, however, work on everything to ensure the Association hosts the rest successfully in the annual tourney.
The Association discussed other ways of raising approximately GH₵3500.00 as participation fee for the Southern Sector Volleyball Championship.
Chairman of the Association, Johnson Abordeh tells Herosportsgh.com, a letter to other stakeholders would also help them raise the amount.
“I think we also have to draft a proposal letter and send to major stakeholders to raise the needed funds. In fact, we need money to even camp the players we will select, at least 2 weeks before the upcoming championship. This meeting has really helped us and I am grateful to all that came to help make it a success. We pray we get more people for the Referees course as well because it is opened to all.”
The selected team from the one day Gala will as well represent the region for the revived 2nd edition of the National Sports Festival in Cape Coast.
Volta, who didn’t only fail to participate in the 2 previous Southern Sector championships but also failed to impress at last year’s edition of the Sports Festival really needs funds to make amends in both events this year.
