Violence is not the culture of volleyball

PETALING JAYA: Physical violence is not a volleyball culture to shape the skills of athletes at any age, emphasized the President of the Malaysian Volleyball Association (Mava), Hean Boon Yeow.

Boon Yeow said the incident of the under-14 women’s volleyball coach in Melaka who slapped two of his players was an isolated issue and happened spontaneously, and the case was also resolved after the incident.

However, Boon Yeow said that the Mava Disciplinary Board still stands by the decision to temporarily suspend the coach and will set up an investigation body to thoroughly investigate the incident.

“This is not our culture in volleyball and the case actually happened spontaneously involving the coach and the players. This does not represent the whole sport of volleyball in Malaysia.

“Various aspects need to be evaluated including the experience and success that the coach brings to the team and it is understood that the Youth Development Exco, Sukan Melaka has also issued a statement regarding this matter.


“I am also disappointed and upset with the report that was made at the initial stage without referring to Mava first and there are also parties that show the faces of the players involved,” he said to Utusan Malaysia yesterday.

Previously, a video clip went viral involving the coach of the team who slapped two players at the 2022 Under-14 (U-14) Volleyball Championship for the female category on 16 December.

According to Boon Yeow, in order to avoid the same incident from happening again, Mava will now include the element of ‘no physical punishment’ in the coaching course syllabus.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Hannah Yeoh said, an independent investigation will be carried out to identify whether the method of training athletes with violence has been practiced for a long time in the women’s under-14 volleyball team in Melaka.


In the meantime, Melaka Youth Development, Sports and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Exco, VP Shanmugam said, the decision whether the service of the Melaka U-14 coach will continue or otherwise will be known tomorrow.

Shanmugam said, he will resolve the issue as best as possible by taking into account all factors.

“On Wednesday (tomorrow), after the ‘post exco’ meeting, I will call the coach and the relevant parties to discuss further action,” he said.

He said that the incident had been resolved peacefully on the day of the incident, and the coach had also apologized to the players and their parents.
