2023 Pacific Games Volleyball Technical Delegate (TD), Dean Turner with support from the Games Organizing Committee conducted a training workshop for local Volleyball officials in Honiara last week.
As part of his visit to observe Games planning and preparations, Turner and the GOC’s (Games Organizing Committee) Sports Delivery team conducted a two-day workshop for all Volleyball technical officials.
“The training was aimed at equipping local technical officials to be prepared for Sol2023.
“We had a good number of participants attend the workshop – some seasoned officials who have officiated at previous Pacific Games and new officials who have been officiating at local competitions in the country,” Luke Paeni of GOC’s Sports Delivery Team said.
Asked how the workshop had helped local volleyball officials?
Luke said, “the workshop was very beneficial to participants. TD Turner was able to give updates and teach officials new international rules of Games. Participants also had the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas regarding the sport.”
Meanwhile whilst in Honiara, Turner had the opportunity to visit Friendship Multipurpose Hall, the assigned venue for Volley at the Games this year.
