Ondo FA, FCAAN to train 100 coaches from S’West

Ondo State Football Association (ODFA) says it has concluded plans to hold a grassroots football coaching course for 100 coaches, as part of its commitment toward developing football in the state.

This is contained in a statement made available to newsmen by Chairman of the association, Mr Dele Ajayi, in Akure on Sunday.

The statement explained that the course, in conjunction with Football Coaches Association of African Nations (FCAAN), would have 75 coaches from the 18 local government areas of the state as participants.

It said that 25 other coaches, five from each of the other five South-West states, would be joining the 75 participants from the state.

According to the statement, the programme is to give opportunity to 100 grassroots football coaches who have yet to obtain coaching certificates.

“ODFA expects that the coaches, who will be participating within Ondo State, must come through their local government football association chairmen.

“Also, those from other South-West states are expected to be recommended by their state FA chairmen.

“This is part of the commitment by our administration to developing both the game and those involved from the grassroots.

“Participation and certificate fees of the 100 coaches shall be paid by ODFA, in conjunction with FCAAN.

“This programme will be at no cost to the participating coaches, as it is fully funded by ODFA, in conjunction with FCAAN,” the state said.

It also requested that all the names of the 100 participants for the coaching clinic be sent to ODFA secretariat on or before Nov. 15.

The request, according to the statement, is to enable the organiser prepare the participants’ certificates ahead of the programme.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the event is scheduled for Dec. 4 at Imperial Boni Hotel, Ijapo Estate, Akure. (NAN)
