LeFA resume CAF Courses
The Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) has resumed with the Confederation of African Football (CAF) coaching courses which had been put on hold with the continental mother body reviewing its coaching syllabus.
Football coaches across the country can now work towards their CAF coaching license badges after a four-year halt brought about by the upgrading of coaching manuals.
The LeFA Education department has not wasted any time after the approval by the continental body to resume with the coaching courses holding back-to-back CAF D License courses for DIFA Qacha’s Nek and DIFA Mohale’s Hoek respectively.
“We have now been given the greenlight to resume with the course after the four-year halt as CAF was reviewing its coaching syllabus,” Thotanyana explained.
“During the reviewing, CAF directed Member Associations to produce their own customised coaching manuals and ours have since been given the greenlight by continental body.
“The ball is now in our court to start all the courses generally because we have met all the requirements and CAF has also commended our work as far as the content, programmes, training plans are concerned. The convention has also been signed.
DIFA Qacha’s Nek President Tebalo Mpiti is over the moon that his district was the first to kickstart the D Licence Coaching course in the country.
“Let me pass my gratitude to the leadership of the Lesotho Football Association for granting us the opportunity to be the ground breakers of the D License Coaching course,” DIFA Qacha’s Nek President stated.
“I’m very proud as the President of DIFA Qacha’s Nek and of course for the participants, who are also making history as the first group to do this course in our country.
“I have no doubt that this will go a long way towards improving the standard of football in our district as far as coaching and development of players are concerned,” he said.
