8 months ago

The Ghana Football School is organizing the second edition of the Video Analysis course from Monday, August 21 to September 10, 2023.

The course is structured in three sessions, with the initial ten days being conducted as a face-to-face session at the Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence in Prampram.

Following this, there will be an online training spanning eleven days before the participants undertake a mandatory internship with clubs of their choice, operating under the supervision of the Technical Directorate.

To commence the course, all participants are required to report to the GFA Technical Centre on Sunday, August 20, 2023, at 4:30 pm.

The primary objective of this course is to equip coaches, individuals, and various stakeholders with a comprehensive understanding of modern trends within the game of football.

The course is intended for a diverse range of participants, including those associated with the 18 Ghana Premier League clubs, 20 Women’s Premier League clubs, 48 Division One League clubs, Regional Women’s Division One League clubs, as well as all other coaches and individuals involved in football.

The course curriculum will enhance the participants' ability to analyze games effectively, including learning how to code matches and incorporate telestrations for presentations. By mastering these skills, participants will be better equipped to dissect team and player performances, thereby identifying nuances and techniques that might be overlooked during live observations.

Consequently, video analysis provides a means for football clubs to critically evaluate their performance, ultimately leading to skill improvement and injury prevention, among other benefits.

The training fee amounts to Four Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHc4,000.00), covering essential amenities such as meals, accommodations, T-shirts, course materials, and a three-month subscription for analysis software.

Only five slots are available, and those interested in applying are encouraged to contact the Technical Directorate for the requisite application form.

The training for this course will be spearheaded by Edward Gyamfi Achempong, Head of Video Analysis and Data, with invaluable assistance and guidance provided by Director of Coaching Education Prof. Joseph Kwame Mintah and Administrative Manager Maxwell Caesar Kemeh.

In a broader context, this course aligns with the overarching strategy of the Technical Directorate to elevate the standards of football in Ghana by fostering continuous improvement and innovation in various facets of the game, including video analysis.
