OFC C-Licence course begins tomorrow

More than 20 local participants, mainly from Honiara, will be taking part in the course as well as 2 who will be travelling from Bougainville. The course will run over 4 days and is part of the new regional coaching accreditation scheme being implemented by the OFC. All the training will be conducted at the education centre at the SIFF academy.
OFC technical department coordinator, Didier Chambaron, will conduct the training for the coaches in the course. Chambaron arrived from Auckland, New Zealand on Friday and he is OFC’s first technical person to travel to Solomon Islands this year. He will be assisted by local coaching instructor, Gideon Omokirio.
Head of the SIFF technical department, Noel Wagapu, says that the coaching course willl be a wonderful opportunity for local coaches to learn important coaching skills from an experienced instructor.
“This week will be an exciting one for coaching in Solomon Islands. Our local coaches will benefit greatly from this course and in due time the training will be passed on to young players. It is not often that we have such opportunities so I appeal to the participants to make full use of this,” Wagapu says.
The OFC C-Licence course aims to enhance the knowledge of those coaches who are currently coaching players at a senior community level (competent technique and skill coaching through the presentation of modern practical and theory methods). The C-Licence course cover 40 hours of training for the participants and the course is centred on training coaches for youth players and is one level up from the D-Licence course for junior players. It covers basic football skill training for players and styles of play which teach formations, combination play and set plays.
The course will conclude on Friday 21st October.
