Football Kenya Federation (FKF), in partnership with the Kenya Association of International Schools Sports Organization, Tuesday rolled out a 10-day coaching course aimed at equipping teachers with top level coaching skills.

The initiative is set to train at least 40 coaches from the International Schools under the guidance of Former Harambee Strars’ Coach Jacob “Ghost” Mulee and FKF Instructor Mathew Sam.

“We are aiming at training the coaches especially from the international schools as there have been complaints that they have been neglected from the process and by this show, it means that we are growing as a federation,” Mulee said.

“In the next four years, we are going to witness tremendous change in  Kenyan football if the trend keeps up this way. More coaches being trained, results to more productive young talents being developed,” the veteran tactician added.

His sentiments were also echoed by Head of Rusinga Schools Chris Akumu, as he lauded the FKF for the impressive move that would see young talents coached and guided by skillful coaches.

“This is something that is going to go a long way in impacting essential skills to our coaches so that they too can pass the knowledge to the young talents with the aim of improving soccer standards in the country,” he said.

The partnership follows in the creation of centres of excellence, through which FKF is aiming to use in imparting both football skills and academic credentials to young talented players.
