    CONCACAF President Opens Inaugural Coaching Course in St. Vincent

    CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb accompanied by St. Vincent officials at the D License Coaching course in Kingstown, the capital city, on May 15, 2014.

    Development was top of mind during a recent visit to St. Vincent and the Grenadines by CONCACAF President and FIFA Vice-President, Jeffrey Webb. During a brief stop in Kingstown, St. Vincent, President Webb opened the D License Coaching course, visited the FIFA Goal Project site, and met with Government and the Federation Officials.

    “We recognize that much work needs to be done in the Caribbean, and we have been focusing on development initiatives for some time now. In the last year, CONCACAF has conducted 23 development courses in the Caribbean, which speaks to the importance placed on educating our youth, coaches and referees.”

    CONCACAF has invested more than 80 percent of its annual budget to development programmes including the D License coaching initiative, Grass roots programmes, venue development youth and senior competitions.

    Speaking on behalf of the St. Vincent & the Grenadines Football Association, President Coombs said, “This was a momentous occasion, and it speaks volumes to the great leadership we have in the region. President Webb is an inspiration to the football fraternity, and it is our pleasure to welcome him to St. Vincent. The results we are getting from CONCACAF are a testimony to leadership qualities we have been receiving. We are confident that football in the region will continue to move forward ; we are far better off now than we were before.”
