The British Virgin Islands Football Association (BVIFA) will host a Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) “D” License Certification Course for Coaches from Thursday 17 to 20 September, 2015 at the BVIFA Head Office and at Capoons Bay.
The course will be conducted by CONCACAF’s Jonathon Martinez, Vin Blaine and Marcos Santillan and will cover a wide range of areas, including Principles of Coaching, Training by Age, Fundamentals of Planning a Training Session, Physical Training, Health and Security, the Development of Community Clubs, as well as other elements related to coaching Youth Football.
CONCACAF launched its first “D” License coaching course in 2013, serving to reinforce the governing body's vision and commitment to education, so that the standard of the game can be raised throughout the region.
The new licensing system designed and executed by CONCACAF’s Development Office and funded by the Confederation as part of its on-going commitment to the growth of the sport, will provide coaches from across the region with a valuable, internationally recognized license, as well as the tools to impart that knowledge at the local level.
Sixteen participants have been confirmed, with an additional four awaiting confirmation, for the four-day course. Certification is dependent upon passing an examination given at the end of the session.
The 16 participants are Thomas Albert; Glen Bascombe; Brendan Boult; Jevon Carty; Jeffrey Demming; Kevin Fisher; Gavin Foster; Lenroy Henry; Charlie Jackson; Gregory James; Rohan Lennon; Richie Morton; Wendoll Nichols; Anreco Ramsay; Vivian Roach; and Timon Robinson.
