Volleyball coaches from Brazil are coming to the Philippines.
Officials of the international volleyball federation are in talks with executives of the Philippine National Volleyball Federations Inc. on their plans to help lift the level of coaching the country.
PNVFI president Ramon “Tats” Suzara said he is into discussions with FIVB on how this can happen in the next two years.
“Brazil is an Olympic power in volleyball. They will be bringing in their knowledge and technology to our local coaches,” said Suzara.
Brazil is ranked no. 1 in the world in the men’s division and no. 3 in the women’s side.
Suzara said talks are continuing on this plan after it was disrupted following a leadership dispute over the last two years.
This time, the chances of Brazilian coaches coming over are big.
The PNVFI is currently finalizing its plans to develop a 10-point strategy to raise the level of the sport in the country through developmental programs.
The Asian Volleyball Confederation has been raising the possibility of the Asian body lending a land to the PNVFI regarding the staging of international meets.
A meeting to discuss the PNVFI’s plans is set today in Taguig. Peter Atencio
