Gisenyu, Rwanda, May 23, 2012 - The Organising Committee for the CAVB Continental Cup finals along with the CAVB Beach Commission held a Referee Seminar for national and international referees in Gisenyu, Rwanda on Thursday.
The seminar was held under the framework of the CAVB Development Plan aiming at increasing the experience and performance of beach volleyball referees across the continent and was supervised by competition referee delegates Anton Pevc of Slovenia and international referee Drago Peslac of Croatia.
A series of sessions have been scheduled by CAVB to present a unique learning experience not only for the national referees of Rwanda, but also for the CAVB international referees accompanying the delegation.
Nine CAVB international and candidate referees will be involved in assisting various sessions for the national referees, line judges and scorers during the seminar.
Participants had two theoretical and practical sessions on Tuesday at the court of Palm Beach conducted by international referees Hazem Sherbiny and Gamal Younes.
Sherbiny and Younes were supervised and evaluated by Pevc and Peslac as part of CAVB strategic plan that CAVB emphasizes on the importance that CAVB International Referees have a responsibility to transfer their knowledge to African referees in their own countries at every event they officiate at.
