CAF B next on Coaching Courses calendar

The Zimbabwe Football Association continues with its coaching courses programme with a CAF B licence course to be conducted in Bulawayo from the 14th of November to 2 December 2016.

The association has already successfully completed two coaching courses [CAF C and Level II] since the appointment of the new technical director, Tawurayi Mangwiro.

Mangwiro and Nelson Matongorere are the course instructors while an assessor will be seconded by the Confederation of African Football in due course.

At least 30 participants are expected to take part in the course.

Zimbabwe currently boasts of 193 CAF B licenced coaches who are awaiting CAF A licence courses which are to be held soon.

The first module of the CAF A licence course will run between 9 and 23 January and the second module commences on the 13th of February, concluding on the 27th of the same month.

ZIFA is currently carrying out a nationwide campaign aimed at appraising coaches and upgrading their qualifications in order to ensure a flawless transition into the period of enforced standardisation which begins at the commencement of the 2017 football season.

This move is in line with dictates of club licensing which are gradually being ingrained into local football structures.
