KVF lay out plan for AAG title defence, name qualifiers provisional squad

Kenya’s Malkia Strikers have begun lrelarations for their All Africa Games volleyball crown, Kenya Volleyball Federation naming a provisional squad of 20 players for a residential camp in Kasarani.

Kenya lifted the trophy in Brazzaville, Congo in 2015 after a 16-year drought.

KVF said the players will start training at the Indoor Arena in preparations for the AAG qualifiers scheduled for Kampala, Uganda between May 18th and 25th.

The federation had plans to involve renowned Italian tactician Shailen Ramdoo to help with the preparations.

The squad will be whittled down to 12 players before they depart to Uganda where slots for the 12th AAG tournament, slated for August 19 -31 in Morocco (Rabat and Casablanca), will be up for grabs.

The squad will also represent Kenya in next month’s Africa Nations Cup in Cairo, Egypt, the Intercontinental Olympics Qualifiers in Italy in August and the Women’s World Cup in Japan the same month.

The team blends youth and experience and will be handled by Kenya Commercial Bank and Malkia Strikers head coach, Japheth Munala, who will be assisted by Joseph Barasa of Kenya Prisons.
