Prisons kick off training despite Uncertainty over New Season


Kenya Prisons women’s volleyball players have resumed training amid uncertainty surrounding the start of the new Kenya Volleyball Federation (KVF) season.

Coach Josp Barasa recalled his squad to begin preparations for their title defense despite three of his players being away on international duty.

The three, Meldinah Sande, Lorine Chebet, and Yvonne Wavinya, are part of the Malkia Strikers team currently holding fort for Kenya at the World Volleyball Championships in the Netherlands.

Four-time African champions Prisons have won each of the last three KVF titles but continental glory has by passed them having last achieved Club Championships success in 2012.

“Up until now we have not yet received any confirmation as to when the league will start but we just have to get ready nonetheless. You never know you could be asked to play tomorrow,” Barasa said.

He further said that he was able to add new players to his squad who are still familiarizing themselves with the team.

“I have some three players I have not registered them for the league. We are still doing some preparations, working on their weaknesses and if they merit, I will give them a chance to play.”

According to Barasa, his side’s preparations would not be affected by the players on national team duty because they remain active and in competition.
