Sessions of theory and practical sessions were held during the course. The participants were evaluated based on their abilities to make presentations and conduct fitness training sessions.

On behalf of FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo,  Watson  who officially closed the course, stressed on the importance of this course.

‘FUFA President sent you greetings but cautioned the  coaches to avoid football politics. If a player is unfit, be open and tell the other technical team members about the problem’ said Watson.

‘Introduction to new training methods will be useful in your duties as fitness coaches. I believe coaching fitness trainers’ experience alone is inadequate. They must have sound scientific knowledge of physiological fitness training’ added Watson.

‘The physical and mental fitness of players is very important in order for them to make good decisions’ he added.

Watson  also thanked Gary for FIFA’s support towards this.
‘Without their active cooperation, it would not have been possible to conduct the course. He also thanked FIFA for the support’
