GFA to offer Nine Hundred (900) Colts coaches free License D coaching course

3 months ago

The Ghana Football Association, as part of strategies to fix the fundamental challenges facing football in the country, will be offering the License D Coaching Course for free to nine hundred (900) Coaches of Colts Football clubs over a period of 3 years.

This new policy of the Association will see three hundred (300) Coaches going through professional certified training every season.

This development comes on the back of a proposal from the National Juvenile Committee which has been accepted by the Executive Council of the FA.

Each of the ten (10) recognized football regions will select 30 coaches to be part of the exercise every year.

The aim of the Football Association is to develop all aspects of Ghana football from the grassroots.

The Ghana FA has, in the recent past, made several interventions designed to support and build the capacity of Colts (Juvenile) clubs: These include the provision of footballs, trophies and medals, as well as administrative support for the District Football Associations to facilitate the development of the game at the lower levels.

The free training will ensure that, ultimately, each Colts club in the country will have at least one certified coach to help in the development process.

This will help to bridge the gap created after the FA announced that all Colts Club Coaches must be, at least, License D holders.

The FA believes that all personnel working with football clubs from the grassroots to the Premier League levels must have the needed qualifications for their respective levels.
