In 2018 his accomplishments were recognized and he was inducted into the CAF Honour Roll.

PATRON

Lieutenant-General F.H. Allen
2011 - present


I have been involved in CAF Volleyball since 1988, and over these thirty years, I have had the great honour of representing my Base, my Region and my country in regional, national and CISM competitions; and more recently as your Patron for Volleyball and a Board of Directors member for CISM. Being the CAF Patron for Volleyball is a privilege and has been a way for me to give back to the Volleyball sports community.
 
I am a true believer in the value and benefits of sport in both our personal and professional lives.  Participating in a team sport, in particular, tests us and teaches us that the hard work of practice is needed for success in competition.  It teaches us how to experience loss, recover, improve and try again.  On a team there are always outstanding individuals, but the efforts of each player is needed, and thus must be valued, to win.  This directly translates into the skills critical to us as military professionals, as well as being an essential part of mental and physical well-being.  I encourage all of you to commit to these values as you participate in the great sport of ours – Volleyball!
