FAZ has launched the FIFA women’s interlocutory coaching course level 1 in Lusaka to impart skills needed to prepare and nurture prospective football players.
General Secretary Ponga Liwewe yesterday officially opened the programme in the company of FAZ technical director Honour Janza, education officer Davison Mtonga and Women’s Football officer Janet Bwalya at the Olympic Youth Development Centre in Lusaka.
Liwewe advised trainee coaches to take the course seriously as its importance was too huge to ignore.
He said their job would create a reservoir from which a new generation of football stars would be tapped, adding that the initiative would also create opportunities to shape the future of the children who will benefit from it.
He understood how huge the task that lay ahead was but expressed optimism that the 28 trainee coaches that turned up for the programme were equal to the task and would meet the challenging demand of the course and their future assignments.
