DILI (24 April 2013) – Graduates of the AFC Project Future Coaches programme were happy to be accepted to join the advanced Women’s ‘A’ Coaching Certificate Course.
The coaches had undergone two year’s training under the Project Future Coaches, a development programme for young coaches with potential across Asia that culminated in them obtaining the ‘B’ coaching certificates.
They are now currently undergoing four weeks of training in the more advanced ‘A’ course, a healthy progress for the coaches some of whom finished their Project Future training only last year.
And they are now just a step away from the continent’s highest coaching qualification, the Pro Diploma.
Below are comments from the young coaches:
“I am now the assistant coach for the national team, having been assistant coach to the U-16 national team in 2011 and U-19 national team in 2012. I have learned so much from the course and the information given is very helpful. I will use my newly gained knowledge for Myanmar women’s football by making effective training programmes, among other things.” – Thet Thet Win, graduate from Myanmar
“I have been coaching boys at the Arsenal Soccer School for five years. Before attending the Project Future Coaches programme, I coached based on my own coaching style but after graduation in 2010, I coached differently, that is by applying what I learned during the course. It has helped me to make good and effective training programmes for the kids.-
After I finish this ‘A’ course I’m currently taking, I intend to share all the things I learned from the course with all my friends, coaches and players. For the future, I will try my best to learn more about football and become a grassroots instructor in Vietnam.” – Dao Anh Thi Phan, graduate from Vietnam
