30 clubs across the country, including academies, will welcome freshly minted CAF C graduates.  The coaches are returning to their clubs after finishing a month-long CAF C held in Buruburu, Nairobi, that ended today.

FKF CEO Barry Otieno who closed the course asked the coaches to make their mark in the game.

“CAF C is a professional course. Each one of you here represents an organization, some of you are head coaches.  When you back to your clubs, make a positive impact, lift those clubs, and build those players. If you do that we will see a change in  our game.”

Former AFC Leopards player Ray Omondi who coaches FKF Division One side Kibra Soccer says the course has opened his eyes.

“I am going back a better coach, a better planner, and with a better understanding of the science behind football. ”

Express Academy coach Maureen Juma echoes the sentiment.

“I have learned what to do and when to do it;  when to run conditioning, when to do functional training, and how intensively. As someone who works with young children under 10, I have learned how to handle that particular age group.”

Rainbow FC Coach Eric Macharia says he will use the knowledge to drive his club forward.

“The key thing I have learned is how to prepare my team to win, starting with training and executing what we have prepared on the field. ”

RO Academy proprietor Ronald Okoth says he is leaving Buruburu a more confident coach.

“The one month has been a valuable experience. The knowledge I have gained has boosted my confidence as a coach. We have learned how to train a team properly, match analysis, and a lot of the science behind football. I am looking forward to implementing what I have learned and the improved performance that will follow.”

Other coaches in the class include Josephat Ngubi, Collins Ochieng, John Makheti, and Kenneth Wendo among others.
