ERC President delivers inspiring lecture to Israeli referees
News from the National Federations

Tel Aviv, Israel, June 12, 2019. Earlier this month, the Israeli Refereeing Commission hosted a training course with the President of the European Refereeing Commission (ERC), Mr Luciano Gaspari, acting as the main lecturer. All current and many former international referees from Israel attended the workshop, together with the younger and most promising ones.

Mr Meir Bernstein, President of the Israeli Refereeing Commission, deserved a warm welcome to Mr Gaspari and emphasised that for the first time in 40 years the acting ERC President was paying a visit to Israel. Mr Bernstein thanked the Israel Volleyball Association for helping organise the clinic and the visit of Mr Gaspari.

Mr Gavriel Kraus, President of the FIVB Refereeing Commission from 2004 to 2012, described Mr Gaspari as one of the best international referees of his generation, as the Italian-born officiated at plenty of elite matches, including World Championships and Olympics.

In his lecture, Mr Gaspari emphasised the many challenges that referees face in modern Volleyball and the importance of a good communication involving referees, players, coaches and scorers. He invited Israeli referees to show a positive attitude and to smile, not to act robotically, and to remember that the Volleyball game is most of all a show. He encouraged the audience to work on their psychological skills, demeanour and BMI, learn foreign languages, and make sure they know the rules of the game by heart.

The workshop will certainly help improve the interaction of Israeli referees with their international colleagues and have a better understanding of the latest development in Volleyball refereeing. Mr Gaspari used his stay in Israel as an opportunity to observe the future generation of Israeli referees while attending the national Youth Cup Finals held in Haifa.
