Coaches Education: CAF ‘A’ coaching course concludes at Njeru

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) level ‘A’ course successfully concluded at the FUFA Technical center on Saturday.

FUFA president, Eng. Moses Magogo officiated at the closing ceremony attended by CAF instructor, Sande Kayuni from Tanzania.

This was a continuation of the early CAF ‘A’ modules that the coaches underwent in January 2016.

FUFA Education officer, Jackson Nyiima told that education for all (coaches, referees, administrators) has always remained FUFA’s priority.

The FUFA President, Eng. Moses Magogo encouraged the coaches to keep in active practice.

It is disheartening to see coaches qualify but when they are non-practitioners. Coaches build great players and teams. Therefore, you have a key role in football development in the country.

He also hinted on specialization, condemned the pre-determination of match results among other key issues.

On by-passing the FUFA regulations, the FUFA President noted that the element  of having shadow coaches on bench on match days by UPL clubs will highly be punishable.

Starting with next season (2016-17), an assistant coach should be a holder of CAF B License.

He also encouraged all the coaches to register with the Uganda coaches Association.

‘It will advocate for you wherever you have challenges in your coaching career’ he noted.

Uganda now has 38 CAF ‘A’ licensed coaches.
