Premier Skills Women’s Football Community coaching course starts at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru

British Council in partnership with FUFA and Soccer Without Boarders(SWB) on Monday flagged off a community coaching course for Women’s Football aimed at spreading the game across the country.

The course which is under the flagship program of British Council called Premier Skills and also an extension support program of the English Premier League was presented by Graham Robinson, head of Premier Skills program at Premier League (via zoom).

FUFA Football Development Director, Ali Mwebe believes this program rhymes with the Federation’s strategy of Mass Football that looks at spreading the game across the country to reach every homestead.

“We are here to open up a 5-day Community coaching course for ladies organized by the British Council under their flagship programme, (the Premier Skills) in conjunction with FUFA and Football Beyond Borders. We are so grateful that such initiatives are coming up and this is in line with our strategy of Mass football which means taking football to every homestead,” Mwebe stated before adding that “having this course means increase in the number of Women involved in football but also having trained coaches that will go back to the community and impart the knowledge picked.”

Officiating as Chief Guest, Louise Ellis, the Deputy High Commissioner at British Council believes this is yet another opportunity to help a girl child this time through football.

“This is such an important programme for us, working with the Premier League supporting and empowering girls with an opportunity to create and learn skills which they can take back to their communities,” she indicated.

“It is important to meet every part of the community and having the refugee communities involved gives them hope through football through social skills, education and health.” Ellis added.

Steve Davies, the Director of Soccer Without Borders in Uganda is optimistic that with such initiatives in place, transformation of communities is easy.

“Football is a game that unites regardless of the difference in background, race and gender. I’m extremely excited that this program has been availed and I have the belief, it can be used to transform communities through football.” He said.

A total of 41 participants are taking part and the counter will climax on Friday.
