The Liberia Football Association (LFA) has begun Level-D coaching course in Monrovia for over 100 CAF beginner coaches.
The Level-D course, which is essential for grassroots coaches, is ongoing at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium and will end on Tuesday, 25 October with five Liberian international CAF instructors serving as facilitators.
Robert Lartey, Lucretius Togba, Famata Dean, Euphemia Wilson, and Arab Fofana will provide tutorials for more than 105 grassroots coaches on sixty-hour practical and theoretical exercises
LFA Technical Director Henry Brown expressed excitement about the number of participants in attendance.
Mr. Brown noted that when he received a list of 106 to110 participants for the course, “I felt really good because it meant the pressure the President, Vice President and Executive Committee put on me to increase the number of participants was evident of your registration.”
He emphasized that some key requirements of the course include tardiness and computer literacy.
In remarks, LFA President Mustapha Raji said the program is open to every Liberian, who wants to enter the coaching profession.
Mr. Raji revealed that the LFA target is to produce 1,000 coaches in the coming years.
