THE Harare Volleyball Association (HVA) today hosted a virtual players’ workshop targeted at refreshing and capacitating senior volleyball players who have been off the pitch for over a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Volleyball is listed among contact sports, which were deemed high-risk and could not get the node to resume last year.
Donald Chademana who is in the newly elected executive for the association and also a fitness trainer hosted the workshop together with volleyball coach, Kudzai Mzondo.
The new committee which came into office in October 2020 also crafted regulations to be followed when the game resumes play.
“As the newly elected HVA Executive Committee we plan on hosting more of these online workshops this year for referees, coaches, administrators, technical stuff and players,” said Chademana.
The Zimbabwe Volleyball Association has already applied to be allowed to resume play through the Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC).
HVA has twenty-three teams registered under it which includes fourteen men teams and nine women teams and they were all affected by the pandemic leading them to clock a whole year without action.
This workshop also provided the executive committee the opportunity to hear players’ concerns while they wait for a green light to resume the sport from SRC.
“The players and stuff should be patient as we wait to return to the courts and make volleyball a sport of the whole family again,” said Priestledge Nhamburo the HVA Committee Chairperson.
The workshop continues tomorrow as they look forward to discuss issues to do with leadership, support, inspiration and understanding the captains’ role.
