Education: Beginners’ coaching course starts in Masaka

At least fifty aspiring football coaches started their beginners’s course at the St Henry’s College Kitovu in Masaka on Friday, 10th January 2010.

The five day course was officially opened by the FUFA Executive Committee Member Rogers Mulindwa, who represented the FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo.

The FUFA President offered this course following deteriorating standards where only Masaka and Kyotera districts are currently playing the 4th Division League in the whole zone. Zone 4 has nine (9) districts.

Mulindwa outlined a number of achievements registered by FUFA in 2019 that included winning several championships and qualifying for CHAN among many others.

He commended the Fufa President for offering this course and urged the trainees to attach more time to it.
