Referee Clinic a Success

| 27/02/2009

(CNS): Twelve beach volleyball enthusiasts, of varying skills and experience, have successfully completed a four-day Cayman Islands Volleyball Federation (CIVF) referee clinic, instructed by renowned international volleyball referee Darryl Friesen (left). The course, held 21-24 February was co-sponsored by the North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation (NORCECA); and the CIVF. The clinic was held in preparation for the NORCECA Beach Circuit tournament which kicks off in Grand Cayman 27-29 March.

All 12 newly qualified referees will be volunteers at the three-day competition which will feature 32 men’s and women’s teams, including teams from Cayman.


“I am very pleased with the turnout and calibre of the participants,” CIVF President Noel Williams said, “and have complete confidence that they will represent the Cayman Islands at the highest standard during the tournament.”


“I was extremely impressed with the outcome of the clinic,” course instructor Darryl Friesen added. “The four day clinic was very intense and every one of the participants has proven themselves to me.”


“I have confidence that all the participants, with a little practice, will be well prepared for the tournament.”
