Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa will on Friday, November 1, 2019, preside over the closing ceremony of Nairobi’s edition of the ongoing CAF C License coaching course.
This as the course also culminates in Kisumu, where 30 participants from Western and Nyanza region took part, as well as in Machakos, which brought together 30 participants from the larger Eastern region, for the past one month at the Machakos Social Hall.
Earlier, between September 2, and October 4, 2019, 90 coaches from the Rift Valley and Central regions took part in the course and were duly certified.
“We have in the past three years actively trained coaches in the Basic/Advanced, as well as CAF C Level, for free. We are now topping this up with the CAF C License coaching course,” said FKF President Nick Mwendwa.
“As a Federation, we believe that this will go a long way in ensuring that youth players at the grassroots are not only handled by qualified personnel but will also help bridge a capacity gap that had denied local coaches job opportunities both at home and abroad,” he added.
The FKF Technical Department has in the meantime, lined up two courses for the coaching instructors, a first of its kind. The first will be held between December 9, and December 13, 2019, for Basic/Advanced Course instructors, while the second will be held between December 16, and December 20, 2019, for CAF C License instructors.
