Seminar for referees and coaches of the Ukrainian National SAMBO Federation (UNSF) was held from the 30th of July to the 2nd of August in Vyshgorod, Kiev Region. About 50 professionals from 13 regions of the country attended this event.

– We must develop in all directions, as according to the competitions results in all age groups, our national federation is one of the best in the world, – noted chairman of the All-Ukrainian Referees Association Anatoly Kantur. – Over the last years FIAS has improved work organization greatly, we must keep this pace. Refereeing is no exception. It`s an essential part of SAMBO promotion. Referees must provide a good role model for the young generation, making sure, that their competency, behavior and appearance meet the highest standards. We`ve developed a new uniform for Ukrainian refs in order to make them more visually appealing. The uniform fully corresponds to FIAS requirements and has our national symbols on it. We`ve also published new licensed books, indicating the information concerning participation in seminars and competitions.

– This event was attended not only be referees, but also by coaches, learning the rules in detail will prove really useful for them, – said UNSF president Vadim Rogach. – However next year we`re going to make this seminar comprehensive both for refs and coaches, it will feature topical lectures (for example, on various training methods), held by top experts. We have vastly experienced specialists, who have already trained a number of European and World Championships medalists and they will keep up the good work.
