THE volleyball season for this year will serve off on February 15 with the country’s top two teams, Defenders and Castrol Strikers, clashing at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.

Billed as the “Clash of the Champions”, the series will also have the top two female teams battling the following day at the same venue.

On February 16, also, Defenders Volleyball Club, in collaboration with the Guyana Volleyball Federation, will be hosting a National ‘B’ Division competition at Blairmont. Some 14 teams from Bartica, Demerara and Berbice are expected to battle for top honours.

Meanwhile, the GVF convened its first statutory meeting for the year last Saturday at Olympic House, Queenstown, in which several activities were programmed to promote the game thus making it the number three National sport.

The initiative will see GVF representatives being part of the Guyana Olympic Association team that will visit Mabaruma to conduct seminars and clinics from today to next week Saturday.

On February 1, the GVF will conduct a Technical/Referee seminar at the Coast Guard’s Ruimveldt headquarters. All clubs are requested to send at least one referee.

Later in the year, Guyana will be hosting Barbados, an event outside the ‘Bloc Development Initiative’ in which countries in close proximity of each other take turns to host competitions.

There will also be special competitions for newcomers to the sport such as Fun Volleyball, Mixed teams Volley and Park Volley.

The usual competitions for A and B divisions and school teams will be staged.

During this year, the GVF aims to increase the number of Beach Volleyball tournaments and to place more emphasis on the development of female teams.

Guyana will participate in the CSV South Zone Championships billed for Caracas in August.

The country will host the CSV Juvenile Championships next year.
