Zimbabwean-born volleyball coach, Nkosilathi Moyo, continues to shine here, after he was recently crowned Coach of the Year in the 2014 Gauteng School Sport Awards.

He received a certificate, trophy and monetary reward alongside the honour, having won nearly everything on offer with Troyeville Primary School last season. His Under 13 boys’ team was also named the 2014 team of the year, while Dalane Dube, another Zimbabwean, was named Primary School Player of the Year.

“It still feels like a dream. I feel honoured to be recognised like this and I appreciate the support we continue to get from everyone as both team and school,” said Moyo.

“I can’t believe it that volleyball could win us so many awards. I expected soccer, rugby, cricket and swimming to dominate. It was actually my team that scooped everything – coach, player and team of the year. We still need to work hard though, as everyone would now want to beat us. We remain unbeaten in Gauteng since 2009 and only lost once nationally, to KwaZulu-Natal in the national finals in 2012.”

Professionally a primary school teacher, Moyo recently led his Johannesburg Spikers team to their first promotion to the topflight Gauteng Volleyball Union league. He was recently promoted to lead the Gauteng Province’s Under-18 provincial team. He is also Gauteng Volleyball Union Development Director and Gauteng Schools Volleyball Development Officer.

With his team he has successfully defended the Volleyball SA Inter-provincial Trophy for three consecutive years with his Under-13 boys. All his Under-11 and Under-13 boys and girls were gold medallists at the Gauteng Volleyball Tournament against five regions.
