The course was aimed at teaching the role of a coach educator, the principles of coaching, the teaching-learning process and age-appropriate training objectives and methodologies. The course, which concluded with a grassroots festival exercise, attracted 15 participants.

CIFA Acting President Bruce Blake said the association understands the importance of the national grassroots programme and is committed to ensuring that the proper fundamentals are taught to the youngsters.
