    Webb urges JFF officials to focus on development

    CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb addresses attendees at the Jamaica Football Federation Congress on July 20, 2014, in Montego Bay.

    MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica – CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb urged officials and coaches to maintain a focus on player development, when he addressed the opening session of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) Congress on Sunday in Montego Bay.

    Webb told the gathering of JFF officials, local coaches and staff members that youth player development in particular should spearhead its strategic plans for the future.

    “The game is about the players, so we have to do all we can to create the best opportunities for them,” he expressed.  “We must embrace the ever-changing world of technology, create the infrastructure that makes the game accessible and improve coaching standards because without qualified coaches our players will never progress.”

    JFF President Captain Horace Burrell thanked President Webb for his continued support and assured his federation’s commitment to implementing best practices in all areas. 

    “Jamaica has been a leader in regional football and we want to build on that legacy,” Burrell said.  “With CONCACAF’s continued support Jamaican football and, by extension, Caribbean football will prosper.”

    During his brief trip to Jamaica, President Webb also attended the Jamaica Observer Newspaper Editors Forum, engaging members of the local media on issues affecting football.  Additionally, he also attended the opening on the FIFA Women’s football coaching course held at the JFF Technical Centre on the University of the West Indies’ Mona campus.
