SPORTS REPORTER



The Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the Namibia Football Association's (NFA) elite instructor, Willy Kapukare, conducted a C-Licence coaching course at Outapi from 2 to 13 November.

The course looked at equipping the coaches with a clear understanding of the game, particularly in regard to youth coaching.



Have the right attitude

The facilitator said players in different age groups require different training, and vast knowledge of football, skill and the right attitude are required to succeed as a coach.

“The participants were quite active throughout the training. I focused on their performance during practical sessions and they outdid themselves beyond expectation. Overall, the course was a success,” he said.



Overcoming difficulties

Kapukare added that due to Covid-19, this was the first course he conducted, although five courses had been scheduled for Tsumeb, Kavango East and West and Erongo.

The Kavango West course was supposed to be a refresher for participants who had obtained their C-Licence in 2017.

Besides the C-Licence course in Omusati, an administration workshop is expected to start tomorrow at the NFA Girls Centre, to be facilitated by NFA instructor Mathew Haikali.

The workshop will run from 09:00 until 16:00 every day, with participants from all NFA Women Super League (WSL) clubs. A fee of N$300 per person must be paid upon registration.



Looking at how to manage football

Haikali said this workshop aims to refresh and re-equip the participants with skills and knowledge in terms of setting up standards of how football should be managed.

“It will look at issues around administration and management, as well as finance and communication in football. The communication component is vital because it's one of the biggest challenges we face in football.

“We need to know how to communicate at all levels and most importantly with our fans and supporters as it's critical in creating our image and brand.”

He added that FIFA has introduced a new online registration process, one he intends on introducing to the club members during the workshop. With the workshop centred around the WSL clubs, around 70% of the participants are expected to be women.
