Volleyball federation holding AGM

The Guyana Volleyball Federation (GFV) will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Sunday, 27th Jan 2013 at the Albion Sports Complex, Berbice, starting from 10am.

GVF president Lenny Shuffler told Stabroek Sport that it’s not an electing assembly but a gathering of volleyball enthusiasts to discuss the development and way forward of the sport.

“It’s not an electoral congress or an election in any regard. We will be reporting and discussing on the subject of the impending developments that are expected to be undertaken in the sport shortly. At this gathering will be representatives from the Berbice and Demerara associations and we will also be mooting with regards toward resuscitating the Essequibo organization”.

Following up on the successful meetings with newly elected International Federation of Volleyball (FIVB) president, Dr Ary Graca and CSV executives in Rio late last year, Shuffler is preparing the GVF for a busy 2013. A four-year development plan which also includes inputs from the Brazilian Volleyball Federation, the world leading country in all forms of volleyball is being worked on.

“Once approved we can foresee the male and female national teams participating in South American Volleyball Confederation (CSV) tournaments when the opportunities arise with support from FIVB, Brazilian Volleyball Confederation(CBF) and CSV. Training for referees, coaches and administration plus volleyball in schools, communities and beach volleyball are all included in this comprehensive plan”.

Exchange visits between block members, Amapa (Brazil), Cayenne (French Guiana), Suriname, Guyana, Trinidad and Roraima (Brazil) at all levels will be encouraged with Guyana hosting an International Invitational Club Tournament late October or early November 2013. The theme for the development plan is “Development through Activity”.
