Aug 14, 2020 Sports Comments Off on Two-day boxing seminar for Officials set for this weekend
President of the Guyana Boxing Association and Vice-President of the Americas Boxing Confederation (AMBC), Steve Ninvalle has informed Kaieteur Sport that the two-day Virtual Seminar for Referees/Judges of the English-speaking Caribbean, Haiti, Suriname and Curacao, originally scheduled for last weekend is now set for this weekend (August 8-9).
The seminar will be conducted by Chairman of the AIBA Referee/Judges Commission Ray Silvas of the USA. Ninvalle, who is the Chairman of the Caribbean Boxing Steering Committee, explained that the seminar was delayed due to the death of a Ray Silvas family member.
The sport administrator highlighted that over a 149 participants from 17 countries have registered for the sessions and the Golden Arrowhead will have a total of eight officials participating in this historic seminar.
The local team will be led by AIBA One stars Richard Braithwaite and Lawrence Assanah, and the country’s first and only AIBA certified International Technical Officer (ITO) Elton Chase. Jermaine Craig, Colin Rodney, Nicola Yhap, Shanice Agard and Denola Bristol are the other local participants.
The Referees/Judges seminar follows close on the heels of a Coaches’ seminar run by AMBC a few weeks ago. Guyana was represented by Terrence Poole MS, Sebert Blake, Clive Atwell, Joseph Murray and Orlan Rogers.
Ninvalle hinted that a seminar to update coaches on the technical aspects associated with scoring of fights will be conducted soon after.
