The Ghana FA will organize the first ever coaching course for colts club on Monday.
The one-day seminar forms part of the Ghana federation’s policy to improve the juvenile competition by updating its trainers.
Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi will open the training program on Monday at the Kaneshie Sports Stadium in Accra 8am.
All the coaches with colts clubs in all the districts in the Greater Accra region will attend the one-day seminar that will give them the basics in coaching.
The country’s leading coaches Ben Koufie, Oti Akenteng, EK Afranie, Anue Mensah and Augustine Arhinful will be leading the one-day seminar.
The coaching course for the colts clubs will be replicated in all the regions in Ghana with the Greater Accra event being the first one.
Most coaches in colts clubs in Ghana have no formal training which has been identified as negatively affecting the proper development of young players in the country.
This is the first time in the history of Ghana football that the GFA is instituting a coaching course for colts coaches.
Further coaching courses for colts coaches are planned for the future as the GFA wants to give the players the right training from infancy.
