Twenty eight coaches attain CAF C badges
Twenty eight out of 30 coaches have successfully completed the CAF C Coaching Course in Lusaka.
The course, undertaken in full collaboration with the Confederation of African Football (CAF), was being implemented at the back of a successful 2020 in which a total of 1,231 coaches were trained across the country.
Each province hosted two rounds of training workshops where 20 FAZ D licences were issued targeting grassroots coaches.
The syllabus was divided into two modules to improve the quality of coaches which saw participants undergo one module for 10 days followed by a 20-day internship programme to a club that has a CAF licenced coach.
Twenty-eight coaches were handed their badges after meeting the number of hours recommended by CAF in theory, practical and internship apart from reaching the pass mark of not less than 60% on Laws of the game.
The two coaches who have not succeeded in their first attempt will have to re-sit in May, this year.
FAZ President Andrew Kamanga officially closed the course and congratulated the participants for successfully undergoing the training programme, which is part of the Association’s resolve to expand the football developmental path in the country for it to be more effective, efficient and result oriented.
Kamanga said CAF courses are key as they provide good insight into the importance of being licensed and serve as a platform for professionalism to be injected in the coaches for the country to reach high professional coaching standards.
FAZ has embarked on a series of vigorous training programmes such as the training of 41 Video Analysts for all Super League and National League clubs, the FIFA Youth Coaching course where 62 coaches were trained and the Goalkeeper course in which 47 Goalkeeper coaches were trained for all Super League and National League clubs.
