Tirana, Albania, March 24, 2017. As they are working hard to raise the level of their national league, the Albanian Volleyball Federation have been introducing quite some changes and innovations, including the use of the electronic score sheet. In order to make this happen, 10 young referees are currently learning the ABC of this tool, and their training is due to continue in the coming days.
“Our goal is to experiment something new, which is very much necessary for the development of Volleyball in Albania,” said Albens Vokopola, Secretary General of the Albanian Volleyball Federation, “but also to raise the profile and professional growth of our referees. We want to bring Albanian Volleyball to a higher level and this action is a much needed, big step in this direction,” he continued.
The use of the electronic score sheet will start with the Playoffs of this year’s national league and after that an extension to other activities and competitions is envisioned as well. More people are supposed to get familiar with the tool so that the electronic score sheet will be used in future youth programs and competitions as well.
