The Head Coach of the country’s Under 21 volleyball teams, Kayode Ajilore has called on the Nigeria Volleyball Federation to camp the players in any natural beach environment ahead of the 2019 U21 Beach Volleyball Championships, scheduled to hold from 20th to 24th March in Cape Verde.
Nigeria male players (Emmanuel Okeke and Eminike Ezeike) and female players (Amarachi Uchechukwu and Maryann Kelechukwu) secured their tickets at the just concluded CAVB U-21 zonal qualifier held in Accra, Ghana.
Ajilore promised on delivering one of the tickets for the 2019 World U21 Beach Volleyball Championships in Germany.
“I think the best solution to our problem is to have a permanent place to prepare our beach team in any of the natural beach environment for the players to get acclamatised to the wind and the heavy beach sand.
“I want to tell you emphatically that for the next round, the story will be different and better because we have been able to see some of our weaknesses and strength which we are going to work seriously on them.
“And also for the player, this outing has opened their eyes to many things and has built their confidence which would motivate them to face tougher oppositions in the future championships”.
