“I would like to congratulate all of you here. This course was held on a special occasion, as we, the AVC, have just finished our E-Scoresheet system. We next have to work on E-Scoresheet for beach volleyball.
I sincerely wish that all of you will help develop volleyball in your countries and our continent as well. Furthermore, we have to carry out a successful marketing program and sell our products in order to get more income. If we can’t sell our products, we the AVC are likely to collapse in the near future,” Mr. Shanrit said in his speech,
“Although you have already completed the course, learning doesn’t stop here. You have to actively learn new things. You should never stop learning and more importantly, you have to learn as much as possible, particularly from the FIVB because this is the very first step to develop international referee candidate course. I wish you all the very best of luck.”
