In a bid to reposition the growth of football in Federal Capital Territory, a total of 16 coaches from the six Area Councils have begun a coaching course at the National Institute of Sports, Abuja.
The coaches are being sponsored by the Chairman, Federal Capital Territory Football Association, FCT FA, Mohammed Muktar for the Basic Certificate in Coaching.
The coaches began the course about four weeks ago and are expected the complete the two month course by April ending.
Mouktar who doubles as Vice President, Nigeria Teqball Federation sponsored 21 coaches for a two-month Coaching Course last year, says he wants to be technically equipped in the round leather game.
He however, appealed to all coaches to beam their searchlight on developmental program at the grassroots rather than sitting and waiting for white collar jobs that are not readily available.
A Member of Africa Beach Soccer Association, Mouktar is one of the coaches who attended the NIS Course to have more knowledge in the technicality of the game.
All the 21 Coaches he sponsored to the Coaching Course last year are now imparting knowledge on developing football at the grassroots across the six Area Councils in Abuja.
Mouktar further stated that most of the coaches in the FCT may be attached to schools to develop the technique of football for the future development of tomorrow’s stars.
