13 years ago

Ghana on Saturday successfully completed the first Basic Level Coaching programme for Women's football in the country.

The FIFA-sponsored course, the first to be held on the continent is part of the sport body's development plan for Africa - 'Win in Africa with Africa' - which attempts at providing the continent with the tools to progress and the skills with which it can continue its own development.

Female coaches dominated the list of participants as 15 women together with five men concluded the six-day programme under FIFA course instructor Roman Hangerter at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram.

Hangerter told of his excitement at the Ghanaian model where the female domination was very much evident.

"I am happy to have worked with such participants for the good of the women's game.

"The number of women who took part tells of the interest that the sport has received here [Ghana]. I hope they turn out to be the models for future generations. It is my hope that they influence the game positively and make coach at the highest level of the game," the FIFA instructor said.
