The Technical Department of the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has concluded a two-week intensive 'C' License training course for 41 young coaches within the Western Region at the Sierra Leone football association headquarters in Freetown.
The course was conducted under the instructorship of Coach John Keister and John Dominic Konneh with the Technical Director, John Jebbor Sherrington providing the leadership and supervisory role while Goalkeeping Instructor, Tamba Moses and Female Instructor, Victoria Conteh formed part of the facilitators.
Five newly recruited local instructors; Musa Kallon, Ken Tabi, Abdulai Bah, John Ajina Sesay and Abu Bakarr Tostao Kamara were also drafted in to augment the training process.
75 percent of the coaches scored above 60 percent which eventually qualifies them to proceed for the 'B' license course after two years of coaching practice and experience.
The Sierra Leone football association President in her message to the new graduands renewed her commitment to support the technical department in organizing more training courses for the development of the game all over the country.
She said the technical department remains the bastion of football development in the football association.
“As an FA, we will continue to support you as we move the game forward”, she said.
She congratulated all the successful participants for going through the rigorous process of the course and thanked the instructors for promoting and developing the game.
The training would continue in the other regions in the country as the first phase was done in the western area in Freetown the capital city of Sierra Leone.
