Finally, after weeks of preparation and selecting suitable venues and coaches, our five day training course took place from 20 to 24 May on the pitch at Primero de Maio. Sascha conducted the training in cooperation with coaches Pinto Baros and Abdul Abdullah of the Mozambican Football Federation.
A total of 34 coaches took part in the training and 33 passed successfully. All participating trainers came from previously choosen community pitches 7 de Abril, Alba Sine and Habitacao, all in Maputo and Massaca in Boane. Successful coaches gained the basic licence of the Mozambican Football Federation and an additional qualification in teaching life skills in combination with football. The coaches showed great commitment and visibly enjoyed the course content!
Overall, we were more than satisfied with the turnout of the course and the high sucess rate showed our careful planning has paid off! We thank the ICAP for its donation which made this course possible. In the future we hope to be able to offer this training course annually.
