With its opening, it is looking to open up new opportunities to students and others in the three southern border providences to hone in their volleyball skills.

“This training site will provide greater opportunities to serve the needs of those from the southern border providences. I’m convinced that the centre will play a vital role in producing well-qualified personnel and good spikers, who can join the national team in the future,” said Chaibangyang.
