LFA Begins License B Coaching Course Saturday
The Technical Department of the Liberia Football Association has announced the opening of a License B Coaching Course from Oct. 31-Nov. 25 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.
The course will be handled by CAF Instructors Henry Browne, Kaetu Smith and CAF Education Officer Francis Tamba.
According to Instructor Kaetu Smith, so far 19 coaches have applied and the department is encouraging coaches who hold License C to take advantage of the course.
He said preparation runs from October 31 to November 18, and examinations will be held from November 21-25.
Subjects to be covered will include different types of strength training, four phases of football strength training, different types of flexibility training, guidelines for endurance and guidelines for plyometric.
Smith added that other subjects are sports psychology, laws of the game, match analysis, playing systems, oral presentation, writing a technical report, among others.
He said License B is loaded with activities because it is the ultimate determiner of a coach’s future career into the world of competitive coaching across Africa.
“License B is the toughest among the courses; it is more functional, which exposes coaches to high level performance,” he said.
He added that the seminar series start with License D, then C, before B, and finally A.
“A is specialized…for a coach to manage a group of coaches; that is why we place emphasis on License B because it makes a coach to know his level in coaching,” he said.
He appealed to License C coaches to take advantage of the course to ensure their development and be able to coach any first division club in Africa.
