The Argentine beach volleyball transits the decisive stage towards the preparation for the 2018 Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games. Last week it was held a training for international referees, line judges and scorers, under the responsability of the two times Olympic referee Osvaldo Sumavil.

During the two days that included theoretical and practical parts at beach volleyball courts at CeNARD, international referees, applicants, national referees, line judges and scorers from Santa Fe, Mendoza, Chubut, Corrientes, Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Entre Rios, Rio Negro and CABA attended.

The courses were organized by the Argentine Olympic Committee, with representation of several provinces and a large number of the federations. The first part was a theoretical instruction on the electronic scoresheet and the beginning of the presentation was in English with simultaneous translation into Spanish. "The language is very important because it is part of the work and all the time we tried to put them in situation. We want to make them understand that the Games starts now in the training and that they should be proud to be chosen, but the responsibility is big and we must be prepared" said Sumavil, referee in London 2012 and Rio 2016.

The second part was practical and was carried out in the new CeNARD courts, divided into two parts: "In the first I emphasized the protocols, presentations, but without game; in the second part, we had Metropolitan players and two full matches were played with line judges and with all the simulations of a real competition game" completed the FIVB international referee.

Sumavil finally highlighted: "I am very satisfied with the participation and organization of this first training, the diagnosis is very encouraging and the report to FIVB is very positive".
