The South African Football Association (SAFA) will on Monday, 3 October 2016 start a ground-breaking FIFA Youth Development Coaching Course that will be attended by almost all of the Premier Soccer League clubs’ Youth coaches as well as the Association’s Regional coaches.

The 5-day coaching course which will run from 3-7 October, will take place at SAFA’s National Technical Centre and will be conducted by prominent FIFA Instructor, Jan Poulsen from Denmark.

Poulsen is a renowned development coach and according to SAFA Technical Director Neil Tovey, his knowledge will have a massive impact on the country’s upcoming youth coaches.

“We will also have some of our country’s upcoming ladies coaches since one of SAFA’s main focus areas is growing the game among women,” added Tovey.

The SAFA TD said the fact that all Regions will be attending this landmark coaching course means the country will benefit a great deal going forward.
