The Guyana Volleyball Federation (GVF) is currently preparing for an invitational Inter-Guiana Under-20 Junior tournament for both male and females which is expected to run from November 3 to 5 in French Guiana.
Guyana along with Suriname and hosts French Guiana, will do battle in the three-day event which is hosted by the French Guiana Volleyball Federation (FGVF). According to coach Levi Nedd, who will be accompanying the teams when they wing out on November 2, training preparations have been productive.
The Volleyballers underwent a training session on Sunday at the National Gymnasium and according to Nedd, the teams will continue their training at the same venue on Saturday October 28 and Sunday 29 with aims of further fine-tuning the players for the meet which he considers crucial for the blooding of a national team ahead of the 2018 Inter-Guiana Games (IGG).
Speaking on the current form of Guyana regarding its progress in the sport, the former national player turned coach said, “After just being victorious at the IGG, it is important for Guyana to gain another title, so the youth development of the sport could further be propagated.”
Coach Nedd also confirmed that a few notable faces will participate in the Invitational while adding that he plans to focus more on the players gelling together ahead of the competition.
