20 new coaches make grade
THE Barbados Football Association (BFA) has added 20 new coaches to its list after the completion of a CONCACAF E licence course.
The course, which began on Tuesday and ended yesterday, was overseen by technical director of the Jamaican Football Federation, Vinmore Blaine.
“In the recent past, we noticed the D licence participants were first-time coaches, and they were struggling, so CONCACAF decided we should come up with a course that would lead them into a D licence,” he explained at the end of Wednesday’s coaching session at the Wildey Astroturf.
“Normally we would have a grass-roots course, but it is a little above a grass-roots course. We will culminate in a grass-roots festival, but the content of the course is more toward the technical development of the players.” (RA)
