Cairo, Egypt, March 30, 2015- The 2015 CAVB Refereeing seminar came out with the best outcome as 85 international and candidate referees showed good interaction with the seminar session and showed good performance in their individual presentation for the assigned rules.
African Volleyball Confederation “CAVB” President Dr. Amr Elwani was happy to meet and speak with the referees at the closing ceremony for more than 2 hours to exchange the ideas and allow the referees to express new ideas to improve their work.
Elwani pushed referees to boost their performance and raise the sport’s global profile to a higher level. He urged the 85 attending referees to pass on the knowledge to their corresponding national federations and their zones through the participation in the national and zonal competitions.
"I need form you to be good ambassadors for African Volleyball whenever you are assigned to any FIVB competition," said Dr Elwani.
"I'm very happy with the increased number of international and candidate referees across the continent in the last 3 years which reflects the great work done by the CAVB refereeing commission headed by Mr Hassan Ahmed.
"One of our major achievements in the last 4 years was the great increase in the number of female referees to reach 35 now. I'm happy to see 18 of them here making about 50% of our total number."
