Football Kenya Federation rolled out a national coaching course aimed at training over 2000 coaches across the country.
The Basic and Advanced Basic coaching course entered its second week on Monday, with several grass-root coaches benefiting from the national exercise.
The two week training, which is part of FKF’s vision of promoting football development at the grass-root level began on September 26, 2016 and will be rolled out consecutively, for the next eight weeks in all FKF branches across the country.
“The venture is part of the federation’s national coaching course rollout program that aims to train over 2000 coaches from all over the country, at the Basic/Advanced Basic level, in the next four years,” said FKF CEO Robert Muthomi.
“The aim is to not only develop grassroots football but also build capacity by establishing a football master plan that will guarantee long term success of the sport and provide a clear road map that will shape the future of Kenyan football going forward,” added the CEO.
The training is being conducted by over 40 local instructors under the tutelage of FKF’S Technical Director Andreas Spier.
