About KVF

The sport of volleyball, which in Kenya, is run under the auspices of the Kenya Volleyball Federation, was introduced in the country in the early 1962. The Federation was registered with the Federation of International Volleyball (FIVB) in 1964. ”

Kenya Volleyball Federation was founded in 1964 and is affiliated to the Kenya National Sports Council (KNSC), the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOC-K), Confederation of Africa Volleyball (CAVB) and the Federation of International Volleyball (FIVB).

It is the role of the Federation to identify, nurture and develop talent, promote volleyball, oversee volleyball activities in schools, colleges and other institutions, develop technical personnel (coaches and referees), organize volleyball competitions in the country and prepare different categories of national volleyball teams – youth, junior and senior players –  and enter them for relevant competitions.

 

 

 

FIVB RELEASES THE 2020 TOKYO OLYMPICS QUALIFICATION SYSTEM

Lucerne, Switzerland, 11th February, 2019

The qualification system for the indoor volleyball tournament at the 2020 Olympic Games has been confirmed by the FIVB. Both men’s and women’s competitions will field 12 teams each, with qualification being the same for both genders. As Japan is guaranteed a berth as the Olympic host, this means that 11 teams will fight for a spot in the Tokyo Games. Sadly for Poland and the future women’s WCH Champion, they will not get an automatic Olympic berth. Also, unlike the WCH, teams will be comprised of only 12 players and not the usual 14.

There will be six intercontinental Olympic Qualification Tournaments, the first starting in 2019, although exact dates and hosts have not been determined yet. The 24 highest ranked national teams, per the FIVB World Rankings as of January 1st, 2019, will participate in these tournaments. They will be place into 6 pools of 4 each using the serpentine system. The seeding will be attributed as follows:

·         POOL A: Ranking 1, Ranking 12, Ranking 13, Ranking 24

·         POOL B: Ranking 2, Ranking 11, Ranking 14, Ranking 23

·         POOL C: Ranking 3, Ranking 10, Ranking 15, Ranking 22

·         POOL D: Ranking 4, Ranking 9, Ranking 16, Ranking 21

·         POOL E: Ranking 5, Ranking 8, Ranking 17, Ranking 20

·         POOL F: Ranking 6, Ranking 7, Ranking 18, Ranking 19

The top team in each of the pools will guarantee itself a spot at the Olympic Games. This leaves a further 5 spots left, which will be determined in five Continental Olympic Qualification tournaments, one in each confederation: Asia, Africa, Europe, South America, NORCECA.

Using today’s FIVB senior rankings, the following men’s teams would be virtually guaranteed as pool winners at the Intercontinental Olympic Qualification Tournaments: Brazil, USA, Poland, Italy, Russia, and Canada. Meanwhile, the following women’s teams would also be a certain lock: China, USA, Serbia, Brazil, Russia, and Japan.

It’s easy to see then, that this arrangement will drive Europeans crazy, as always, as the CEV boasts a huge number of competitive teams that will be left out of the Olympics in favor of weaker Asian, African, South American, North American teams. Italy, Turkey, and The Netherlands, for example, would have a hard time making it to the Games in the women’s field, with the French suffering the same fate in the men’s side. Remember that in 2014, Serbia was left out of the men’s competition, with Turkey also being kept home in the women’s field.

Lugogo Indoor Arena, Rwanda - 19th May, 2019

National Women's volleyball team Malkia Strikers edged out their East African rivals Rwanda in straight sets 3-0(25-10, 25-17, 25-10) as the 2019 all African games Zone 5 qualifiers served off at Lugogo indoor arena in Kampala, Uganda. Kenya is seeking the sole ticket to the Morocco bound games which will give them a chance to defend the title they won four years ago in Congo Brazzaville.

Head Coach Japheth Munala paraded a formidable starting line up that comprised setter Wacu, opposite player Makuto, Middle blockers Wisa and Atuka, outside hitters Murambi ans Captain Moim, and Libero player Kundu. The team established an early lead from the onset of the set, 8-2 heading into the first technical time out before they extended it further to 16-5 as the match progressed. Impressive fighting spirit and individual perfomances propelled theteam to bag the fisrt set 25-10.

Coach Munala retained the starting line up that ended the first set as Kenya stormed into an early lead 8-3. The Rwandese  side however put up a spirited fight in the second set despite trailing the 9 times African Champions from the start of the start. Their resistance did not pay off eventually as they went down 17-25 in the second set.

With a 2-0 sets advantage, Kenya began the third set on a high leading 13-3 before Coach Munala shuffled his squad bringing in Africa's best attacker this year, Chepchumba in place of Murambi, middle blocker Chebet for Atuka and setter Wanja for Wacu. The substitutions paid off as Malkia Strikers took the third set 25-10.

Coach Ramdoo was happy that the team played very well in their first match and he looks forward to help the team improve on a few areas as they get ready to face Ethiopia. “So far so good, its our first match of the all African games qualifiers and we played very well especially the back court and attack which worked very well for us, our services were fantastic and that made us win easily.” Said Coach Munala.

Kenya will play Ethiopia in their second match on Monday, 20th of May, 2019 at 1800 hours Kenyan time.
