Uganda Volley Ball Federation Hailed By Sports Minister Peter Ogwang

The State Minister for sports, Peter Ogwang, intends to bridge the gap between sports federations and bodies governing sports in the education sector.

These bodies include the Uganda Schools Sports Association (USSA) and the Association of Uganda University Sports (AUUS). The USSA takes charge of post-primary education and the AUUS is for the university sports.

He learnt of the wide gap between the two institutions and the federations while he met with members of the Uganda Volleyball Federation.

Apparently, affiliation to who and by who is the issue that requires resolving. He called in the NSC to schedule a meeting for the parties that he shall personally guide.

“I have been hearing reports that the schools’ settings work independently of the federations based on the fact that they have their separate school calendars. There must be a mandate to guide on the interdependency,” the minister said.

He made this comment after he learned that the USSA only stops at asking for referees from the volleyball federation.

During his tours, he asks for audited books of accounts, the strategic plan, regional ranking as well as governance issues among others. He expressed his appreciation for UVF for being compliant.

However, he urged them to work out proper talent identification and to work more with NSC. He said this will enable them get access to the sole national indoor arena for competitions.

“As number five in Africa, you deserve more recognition. But I strongly advise that you get a marketing department to look for funding. The private sector is 99 percent ready to inject money into Ugandan sports but they don’t trust the managers. You should also engage me when going to negotiate for sponsorship from the companies,” he added.
