The Fiji Amateur Boxing Association are trying to get local boxing coaches in Fiji gets certified by the Amateur International Boxing Association.
Representatives from International Boxing are in the country conducting a week long International Boxing Association Star One Course with representatives from around the region participating in the course.
Boxing President, ManasaBaravilala says this course is to enablecoaches in the region to understand the rules and regulations that are governed by AIBA.
“The issue we’re having here in the region, especially in Fiji is the lack of qualified coaches and I’m talking about AIBA accreditation, so when we came on board last year, one of the board that was one of the key drive was to make local people as possible qualified.”
Baravilala says Fiji has only 2 coaches that are accredited by AIBA.
The Star One Course will end later this week.
