Aside efforts in football and basketball, anotherevent in which Kano Pillars are engaged in is the discovery and promotion of volleyball talents.
This much has been outlined by the coach of Kano Pillars Volleyball Club, Musa Babanmusa, revealed that his passion is to discover younger players and replace ageing ones.
Babanmusa, who is also a member of Nigeria Volleyball Federation technical committee said his talent efforts have gone far, such that some players who are currently dominating the squad of Nigeria Customs Service were produced by his club.
He revealed that plans are now in place for a three-week camping programme for his Kano-based team, after they qualified for the National Volleyball League Division One ranking billed to hold in August.
Babanmusa disclosed: “The team has returned from the Savannah Conference and I’m writing a proposal to the Kano state sports commission to have at least three weeks closed camp.
“One of the reasons is that the players have not actually worked together because some of them are students.
“Since we have qualified for the Top 8, we believe the office will give us the support we need and we’ll work on our closed camp in order to have team cohesion, to do better in the league.
“It is part of our antecedents to bring up young players and I’ve made it a point of duty that I’m going to bring/tutor young players to stardom.
“I’ve always replaced older players in various teams I coached in the past. Normally, it’s a serious program in Kano that any player that leaves, he or she should be replaced.
“It’s a stable program we have for young and vibrant players. We’ll keep on doing that as long as we are in volleyball.
“About six of the Nigeria Customs Service players are from Kano, a lot of players in the Nigeria Police Force, Nigeria Army, and so on are from Kano State.”
