The workshop was held at the Port Mourant Community Centre, Corentyne Berbice. The facilitator was former National Captain and present National Coach and BVA President Levi Nedd. The course was held under the theme: “Live Up don’t Give up with Suicide”. During the sessions the participants were taught techniques, tactics, physical conditioning and did a good amount of psychology training and were given a brief history of the game.
Volleyball was invented by Mr. William Morgan in 1895 in Holyoke Massachusetts, USA. In 1896 the name was changed to volleyball. The game was mostly spread around the world by the Young Men Christian Association (YWCA) and soldiers during world war one. Beach volleyball was started in Florida USA.
In the beginning nine players used to occupy the court for play in rows of threes. This is still practical in some parts of China.
Digging was invented by Japanese women, also crossing and hitting, rotating and arm swing.
