Elite Bahamian volleyball players and national team members will benefit from a month of practice clinics under renowned Brazilian coach Augusto Sabbatini. Coach Sabbatini is in The Bahamas as a result of sponsorship by the International Volleyball Federation and NORCECA, the North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation, through The Bahamas Olympic Committee.

Coach Sabbatini praised The Bahamas Volleyball team and its “high quality players and high potential”. Bahamas Volleyball has had considerable regional success this year, with three team medals at various regional qualifying events. Volleyball Team Bahamas won gold in French St. Martin; Silver in Cuba and Bronze in Puerto Rico. The team also placed fifth at the Continental Championships in Canada. The team’s next outing will be at the Central American & Caribbean (CAC) Games in Veracruz, Mexico in November.

Bahamas Volleyball Federation President Rev. Dr. Joe Smith noted that the Federation intended to divide Coach Sabbatini’s coaching time between New Providence and Grand Bahama and would invite coaches and players from Abaco to take part in the Grand Bahama sessions.
