Sierra Leone Beach Volleyball Teams Depart For The African Beach Volleyball Championship In Morocco
The Men and Women’s National Beach Volleyball Teams depart for Agadir, Morocco for the Cup of African Nations (SNRS) Beach Volleyball Championships scheduled for 26th July to 1st August 2022.
The teams depart with Royal Air Maroc in the morning hours of Wednesday 27 July to join other African teams for the said championships.
The male team is made up of Ahmed Aruna of Young Stars Volleyball Club, Champions of the just concluded Western area Club Championships.
He was crowned Most Valuable Player (MVP) and most outstanding Young Player.
He is making his debut with the Senior Men’s Team and is expected to make an impact.
His partner and long standing Player in the sands is Mohamed Karim Kamara (Star Boy). He is with Twelve % Volleyball Club, Runners Up in the WesternArea Club Championships.
Star Boy has been with the Beach Training programmes since 2018 and has made an impact on the coach.
The duo of Gladys Maria and Binta Bah is well known in national beach volleyball circles. Though they represent different clubs their partnership on the sands has been remarkable for years.
Speaking to the VFSL MEDIA, the Head Coach of the teams, Coach Sorie Kamara (MOR), maintained that he was desperate and wanted to make a show at this event after an absence of close to three years and the effects of such an absence on his teams’ African rankings.
He stated that both teams have dropped considerably and were at an time low in a decade. Appearance was of essence inspite of the funding challenges.
He is hopeful that tremendous improvement would be made on their rankings and eventually buy some experience ahead of future championships.
