    “D” license coaching course filled in Antigua

    ST. JOHN’S, Antigua & Barbuda -- The Antigua & Barbuda Football Association (ABFA) has received an “overwhelming” response from entry-level coaches registering for the upcoming CONCACAF “D” license coaching. 

    The program, scheduled for May 8-11, was designed for 30 coaches, but the ABFA signaled interest has exceeded that total. 

    “A lot of them have applied for the D License course, which comes up, so we are seeing about that too because the course is fully subscribed and all the coaches are going to be there at what is a CONCACAF initiative,” said an encouraged ABFA General Secretary Gordon Derrick.  “They have been going through their paces and have been doing very well and I just want to tell our committee to keep up the good work.”

    ABFA Vice President Gwen Salmon added that although those registering outside of the first 30 coaches would not be allowed to sit for the exam, but they will be allowed to observe.

    The course, which will be conducted by CONCACAF development officer Lenny Lake of St. Kitts & Nevis and instructor Joe Supe, will cover a wide range of areas, including the principles of coaching, training by age, fundamentals of planning training sessions, physical training, health and security, among other topics.
