Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi has opened a five-day coaches training program for colts clubs in Accra.
The program, the first of its kind in Ghana is being held at the Kaneshie Sports Complex.
Seasoned coaches such as Francis Oti-Akenteng, Ben Koufie, Emmanuel Afranie, Kuuku Dadzie will be taking all the participating coaches through the modern trends of coaching at the juvenile level.
The program forms part of the Ghana FA’s policy to develop the game at the grass-root level.
Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi shared the purpose of the training program with the media after delivering his keynote speech.
“This is a training program designed exclusively for colts coaches,” he said.
“We think that a lot of coaches who are handling clolts clubs are doing it out if interest without the relevant skills that they acquire through a formal session like this.
“This is the stage that young players are thought the basic fundamental rules of football and therefore there is the need to equip the people who are responsible for imparting this knowledge so develop players with the right basics.
“We are going to replicate this training session across the ten regions of Ghana so from here we will be going to a different region.
“This will also be done regularly, so every year or every two-years, it will be done.”
The training program is absolutely free for all participating coaches with the Ghana FA bearing its full costs.
