Nemostars Volleyball Club will return to continental engagement this year with hopes of improving their performance posted in the previous years.
Playing at the Africa Volleyball Club Championship for the fifth time, the national league champions believe they have what it takes to hit out of the blocks and put up a better show.
Head coach Andrew Okapis believes his team has been undertaking rigorous training and preparations that will enable them to compete ably.
“Since winning the national league on December 2nd last year, we have been having intensive training sessions to make sure we get in good shape early enough,” he said.
Okapis added that his troops have earned the necessary experience in the previous editions and the fifth attempt will be to try and go an extra mile.
“A few years back, we went there with boys but they have now become men and they have attained some experience to play at that stage so we are optimistic for an improved performance,” said the outspoken coach.
Nemostars will continue with preparations this weekend in Kenya as they take part in the Mateeka Open in Bungoma.
However, the team is still cash strapped and need about 105 million shillings to be able to compete at the tournament slated for 26th March -5th April in Cairo, Egypt.
The team has beefed up their squad with seven new arrivals and these include; Benedicto Omaringa, Nespal Angiro, John Opolot, Ezra Luswata, John Kokas Oumo and Asaf
