The Namibia Football Association (NFA) C Licence Coaching Course came to an end on Friday after two weeks of targeted training to over 30 prospective coaches.
The course that started on 2 July at Soccer House ended on 13 July and covered various topics including training programs basic and specific coaching, laws of the game and sports medicine.
After writing exams on the final two days of the course the 31 coaches were presented with their participation certificates on Friday by CAF Coaching Instructor Willem Kapukare who was the main course facilitator.
Boy-Boy Ndjadila lectured on the laws of the game while Brave Warriors team doctor Gerson Kandjii talked to the participants about the importance of sports medicine.
The participants were urged to stay committed to the game and to continue working on football pitches in order to sharpen their newly acquired knowledge.
“Coaching education can be related to any other academic institutions, as you need to go through rigorous examinations to be certified as a qualified coach, but remember practice makes perfect,” said Kapukare.
The coaches were encouraged to find jobs if they are not attached yet, “because you can only become a better coach if you learn from your mistakes, thus, prepare your coaching sessions and use them as reflections as well as references,” he added.
The exam results will be out in two weeks time and successful coaches will be invited to attend the CAF/NFA C License Coaching course in October/November 2012, while the ones that do not make it will have an opportunity at the next NFA C License Coaching course.
