FCAAN COACH COACHES IN NIGERIA: Invites You to Learn The Principles of Attack And Defense in Modern Football

By February 16 - 17, 2013, your football intelligence would improve tremendously and you would become a more technically sound coach. I guess that will be nice, because only a coach with sound technical knowledge will be able to deal with the trends in football. The sport is advancing very fast and you can't be found wanting.

This is the reason Football Coaches Association of African Nations (FCAAN) is offering coaches, especially in Nigeria, the opportunity to learn the latest techniques of the game.

You can't really imagine the extent to which the sport will develop in the country if more coaches are better trained. It would no longer be a hand pick of coaches like: Stephen Keshi, Samson Siasia, Sunday Oliseh... Imagine where grassroots coaches, the ones that handle our talented kids at their formative age, are also better trained. In fact, developing Grassroots coaches will be the primary mission of FCAAN

Terry Eguaoje, President of FCAAN, said: "I believe that only well-educated coaches could lead the country out of its current poor state, since the game has become very scientific."

"Its not just about team formation alone, but the application and technical intelligence required for every situation your team find itself. As we all know how dynamic the game is." Eguaoje explains.

This February 2013, at National Institute of Sports (NIS) - former National Stadium Surulere, Lagos, coaches would be trained on the latest  Principles of football attack and defense.

Eguaoje speaking with LTV Sports Splash, Said: "We've invited foreign resource instructors that has in-depth knowledge about this evolving trend to come and upgrade our coaches."

"Its not going to be a classroom lecture alone with only visual aids and videos. Its going to involve practical sessions to demonstrate how the techniques can be applied intelligently." Eguaoje said.

"We're coming with the latest technology in Coaching and I believe anybody that attends the sessions would become more knowledgeable in the game. The training is for coaches, football managers, journalists and anyone who earn a living through football."

Reaching to FCAAN's proposal, Adeboye Onigbinde, FIFA and CAF technical instructor, told newsmen in Lagos that the program would enhance the capacity of Nigeria coaches and the game.

"I appeal to all coaches to key into this program, because it'll aid them in improving their knowledge, skills and gain more experience in Coaching." Onigbinde said.

Similarly, Samson Siasia, a former Super Eagles coach, said: "This initiative is a start for the growth of football and coaches from the grassroots should buy into it."

 You can register online to participate in the program. It's a diploma course from University of Mississippi, USA.
