The curtains came down on Sunday afternoon last at the Guyana National Gymnasium when the Guyana Volleyball Federation (GVF) and FIVB ended a successful six-day Referees Course.
Participants were exposed to five days of theory and a one day practical session. Class room work was held at the newly constructed National Resource Sports Centre and the Guyana National Gymnasium.
Completing the course were 15 participants drawn from various clubs and organizations throughout Guyana. These included participants from Lethem in Region 9, Corentyne, Region 6, Buxton and Georgetown.
Course Coordinator, Mr. Marlon Pearson in his closing remarks thanked all the participants for being a part of the programme and encouraged them to put their newly gained knowledge to practice. Course facilitator, FIVB Trainer Carlos Cimino of Brazil was also praised for the excellent work done.
Cimino in his closing remarks commended the participants and urged them to be only the best and said he is looking forward for some of them becoming international referees while encouraging them to always come forward and make their contribution and not stay in the background.
He reiterated that he knows this is a start but with much practice they will become excellent referees. Also on hand to make closing remarks was Mr. Gervy C. Harry who represented the National Sports Commission.
Harry encouraged the participants to understand their roles and responsibilities while making full use of the opportunity presented to them. The newly trained referees said they were very optimistic and eager to put their knowledge to the test. Certificates were presented to each of the participants.
