Ahead of the 2019 National Youth Games in Ilorin, the President of Nigeria Volleyball Federation, Engineer Musa Nimrod has advised various states not to feature overage players but under fifteen in the volleyball event.

Nimrod said players discovered at the Youth Games will form an integral part of the next African Youth Games team to be held in Lesotho.

He said the young players have a task ahead by defending the title won by the nation’s U19 players at the last African Youth Games held in Algiers, Algeria.

Nimrod said, “I welcome the volleyball family to another edition of the National Youth Games, the federation under my watch is doing everything possible to curb overage athletes in the various age-grade categories. I am appealing to the respective states to feature U15 players in order to make the job easier for the federation.

“The federation has U12, U15, U17, U19, U21, and U23 program currently ongoing and players identified will pass through this age-grade tournament.

Nimrod further said, “Any player identified by the technical committee will be penned down and stands a chance of representing Nigeria at the 2022 African Youth Games in Lesotho. The task is enormous and the next generation of younger players will have to defend the title won at the 2018 African Games in Algeria”.

He urged grassroots coaches to register their academy with the federation in order to benefit from international programs in the nearest future.

Nimrod said, “If you look at the Nigeria Football Federation, you will see that the academy scattered across the country are affiliated to the football governing body. I am calling on the volleyball coaches who have an academy to register with the volleyball secretariat in order to benefit from the international program when they are available”
