GVBA Launches Ghana Beach Volleyball Project

The Ghana Volleyball Association today launched the Beach Volleyball Project dubbed the ‘Ary Graca African Dream’.

 

The project which is the brainchild of Dr. Ary Graca the President of the International Federation of Volleyball is to help develop grassroots volleyball among school children aged 8-14 years. The Children will be given the requisite training to develop their skills so that in the next 3 years, Ghana will have skilled and talented volleyball players competing in international competitions such as Olympic Games etc.

 

Speaking at the launch, the president of the Ghana Volleyball Association, Paul Atchoe noted that the lack of infrastructure development in Ghana has made it impossible  for Ghana to compete at the highest level because most countries have moved on from the traditional volleyball to indoor volleyball which is not available in this country.

 

He noted that the Association has selected four centers of excellence i.e. one in Aflao, two in Accra and one in Takoradi and these centers will focus on the youth development project in selecting the children with the appropriate weight and height.

 

The president further noted that festivals will be organized from time to time between the four centres of excellence to encourage competition and select the most skilled and talented players for competitions. Mr Atchoe also explained that his outfit has put internal measures in place to ensure that both funds and equipment are effectively used for the project.

 

On his part, the Deputy Director General-Technical of the National Sports Authority, who declared the project opened congratulated the Association for their initiative. He advised the children selected for the project to be disciplined and listen to their coaches since they have a brighter future ahead.
