FIVB Technical and Coaching Commission brings top international coaches together

The Commission held its meeting in a hybrid format

The FIVB Technical and Coaching Commission brought together some of the best international coaches to discuss upcoming tournaments for 2023 as well as the coach support provided to National Federations via the revolutionary programme of Volleyball Empowerment.

The annual meeting was held in a hybrid format with Commission President Giovanni Guidetti joining from the FIVB Headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, while the other members joined via videoconference.

During the meeting, a number of important topics were discussed, including the updates on upcoming volleyball and beach volleyball events. Additionally, the Commission listened to the latest information about the FIVB’s Volleyball Empowerment and Development programmes as well as Olympic Solidarity. The members also discussed the work of the working groups and their proposals.

Opening the Commission meeting, FIVB President Dr Ary S. Graça F° said:

“Coaching to improve the technical level of national teams worldwide remains at the heart of this development. As you all know, a national team must have a knowledgeable and strong coach to lead them. It is why your Commission is so important. And it is why coach support is one of the key pillars of the Volleyball Empowerment programme.”

“As of today, we have 44 ongoing coach support projects globally, with 44 coaches therefore employed by the FIVB as part of Volleyball Empowerment. Overall, there have been 96 coaches who have worked with us under FIVB Volleyball Empowerment projects.”

The FIVB continues its annual Commission meetings with the FIVB Development Commission meeting scheduled for 1 February and the FIVB Volleyball Empowerment Commission meeting on 2 February.
