Football Development: FUFA directs schools to employ qualified coaches

Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has made a directive to schools across the country to employ only qualified coaches to manage school football teams.

This is a strategy aimed at developing football right from the grassroots and the fact that majority of the young players are school-going students, the coaches that handle them must be qualified.

“FUFA continues to commit and drive its efforts towards its mission of developing, promoting and protecting football for all.” Reads part of the letter issued to schools across the country.

“The FUFA Executive Committee has directed that all schools should employ qualified football coaches to manage school teams in order to enable FUFA achieve its mission and develop a football philosophy that cuts across all National Teams.”

The directive will start working this year and thus the coaches that manage schools must have at least FUFA minimum coaching qualifications.

“It is therefore a requirement that effective this season, all schools that compete at both local and International levels employ coaches having at least FUFA minimum coaching standards.”

For Primary and Secondary schools, the coaches employed should have CAF D as a minimum requirement while Universities must employ coaches with a minimum of CAF C.
