BEACH Volleyballers preparing for the South Pacific Games in Samoa will rub shoulders with USA professional player Makare Wilson Diselet in a two-day clinic next week.
The Fiji-born athlete, who is ranked 4th in the AVP Pro Tour which is played all over the United States of America between March and August, is eager to outreach her skills.
"I'm looking forward to the clinic to teach the local players some of the things which I started off with," Diselet said.
She said fine tuning the basic skills would pave the way to success.
"I'm just going to be working a lot on basic ball controls because that's such a huge part of the game," Diselet said.
"Indoor volleyball is a lot differ from outdoor volleyball where techniques are quite different so we'll just be running through the basics and incorporate some other techniques along with that," she said.
"I'm sure players here are already developed and done well so I'll contribute whatever skill or drill I can add to their success," she said.
