    ST. JOHN’S, Antigua & Barbuda -- The much anticipated CONCACAF “D” license coaching course opened at the Antigua Recreation Grounds on Thursday with more than 30 of the country’s entry level coaches in attendance.

    The program, which concludes on May 11, is being conducted by CONCACAF Development Officer Lenny Lake of St. Kitts & Nevis and instructor Joe Supe.  It will cover a wide range of areas, including principles of coaching, training by age, fundamentals of planning a training session, physical training, health and security, as well as other elements related to coaching youth football.

    In his opening ceremony address, Everton Gonsalves, President of the Antigua & Barbuda Football Association (ABFA), highlighted the importance of such grassroots initiatives.

    “It’s not by chance that the ABFA works in conjunction with CONCACAF to ensure training sessions like these,” said Gonsalves.  “The development of football in Antigua & Barbuda is sacred to us and one of the pillars of development is certainly education and let me start from the onset to indicate to my colleagues here that when you do go back to CONCACAF, express our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Jeff Webb (President) and Enrique Sanz (General Secretary) for the opportunity to share in this exercise.”

    Last week, the ABFA announced that the response from local coaches registering for the course had been “overwhelming” as the number of applicants far surpassed the 30 available spots.
