India continued its initiative to develop future leaders following the start of the 4th AFC Futsal Level 1 coaching course at The Sports Authority of Goa on Thursday, June 13.
Eleven participants with grassroots and youth team coaching backgrounds are taking part in the six-day course aimed at equipping coaches with the latest coaching methods and best practices.
Co-organised by Goa Youth Futsal Academy, Goa Football Association and the All India Football Federation, participants will go through practical, theoretical and practical exams to complete the course. “It is pleasing to see the All India Football Federation has been actively organising the AFC Futsal coaching courses for the last two years,” said Head Instructor Chiew Chun Yong from Malaysia.
“Hopefully there will be more Futsal Coach Education courses such as fitness, goalkeeping and referee courses in the near future so that futsal in India will continue to grow.”
