Just over twenty coaches are currently engaged in a training course, to develop their skills as well as to be certified as Level 11 coaches.

The course, powered by the BVI Football Association, is being facilitated by the recently appointed Technical Director, Marcos Falopa.

The course, which began earlier this week, will see the local coaches receiving training in the principles of coaching, technique planning, small side games, warm up and tactical games.

The lessons, which will run every Wednesday for the next three weeks, are designed to improve on the coaches’ communication skills and education, in an effort to enhance the skills of the local players and the BVI’s football industry.

President of the BVIFA, Andy Bickerton encouraged the coaches to utilize the experience and continue giving back to the community through the sport of football.

Mr. Falopa said, “I am here for the challenge and very pleased to see how many coaches registered for the Level 11 course. You will learn something over the duration. No one knows everything and even if you only learn ten percent, then the course will be successful.”
