On the 8th May, the first FITB C Coach course in Tunisia was held in the city of Ksar-Hellal. This course was conducted by the FITB Director of International Development, Mr Julio Calegari. Julio also took the opportunity to present a provisional letter of affiliation to the FITB to the new National Federation, Association Tchoukball Tunisie. This is now pending the ratification of the final approval during the FITB General Assembly in 2019.
Julio commented on the work of the new federation:
"The potential of development of tchoukball in Tunisia is fantastic, especially due to their good work with local clubs and schools and the support from the Tunisian Sport Pour Tous Federation".
Physical Education teachers from a different region of the country took part in the course that also had the special participation of Mr Nasser Sadmi, FITB representative for Algeria. Mr Sadmi will shortly be starting the activities in this neighbouring country and is planning for the future organisation of coaching courses and regional friendly matches between Tunisia and Morocco.
