The South African Breweries (SAB) in partnership with the South African Football Association (SAFA) officially kicked off the 2017 edition of the SAB League Skills Camp at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria. Following a successful edition of the SAB League Skills Camp in 2016 where match officials and administrators were equipped with invaluable skills within their respective areas, the grassroots football empowering initiative took a turn to focus on coaching.
This year’s edition sees coaches from all corners of South Africa coming together under the auspices of highly esteemed and qualified SAFA instructors for a CAF C License coaching course.
The opening day of the course saw the aspirant coaches delving deep into various factors of performance and principles of training with an emphasis on how to improve these aspects at amateur level.
The 10-Day course is set to intensify as the week progresses with SAB League graduate and current SA U20 national team head coach; Thabo Senong is also expected to share his knowledge of the game.
”This is an exciting opportunity presented to us by SAB. As a young coach looking at improving my coaching abilities, this course will empower me to make a difference in my community and also upskill myself as a coach” says Rodney Taylor from the Western Cape.
The gears are expected to shift up a notch on Monday with intense field activities to take place for the coaches.
