A master class on national games was held in Novy Afon

The Congress team held another master class on national sports games at the Novy Afon Secondary School named after B.D. Avidzba. The schoolchildren were told about the rules of the “Aimtsakiachara” game separately noting the features that distinguish it from many related competitions. After the theoretical part, the students divided into two teams and played the first match.

"Aimtsakiachara" is an Abkhazian national team ball game, reminiscent of modern rugby. According to the rules of the competition, team captains knock down a small felt ball with wooden sticks, while trying to throw it to their team mates. The catcher must run to the finish line as quickly as possible and not get caught by opponents who are trying to possess the ball.

The national games project has been implemented since 2022. This year, the WAC continued visiting master classes in the towns and villages of Abkhazia. The best teams will take part in the tournament, the results of which will determine the winner.
