    FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – The first-ever CONCACAF beach soccer coaching course opens on Friday at the Sheraton Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 

    FIFA instructor Angelo Schirinzi will lead the intensive three-day gathering for 13 coaches from four of the confederation’s member associations.  Additional presentations will be made by CONCACAF beach soccer manager Betto Lima, while Josep Ponset -- head of competitions for Beach Soccer Worldwide -- will also be in attendance. 

    The program is a fundamental component of CONCACAF’s concentrated efforts to promote beach soccer throughout the region.  By placing an emphasis on coaching education, the primary objective is to create a model that will lift this version of the sport from the grassroots level all the way to international play. 

    Though a CONCACAF-affiliated nation has never hosted a FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup, its representatives at the competition have experienced much success.

    In 2011, El Salvador defeated Argentina and Italy on its way to a fourth-place finish.  Last year, the Cuscatlecos lost narrowly in the quarterfinals, 2-1, to eventual runner-up Spain. 

    Mexico had the best-ever placement by any CONCACAF side, when it came in second after falling to host Brazil in the 2007 final.
