Curtains came down on a week-long coaching course in Nairobi that is part of the FIFA/FKF Pilot Project for women football development’s initial implementation plan.
The course brought together 40 participants at the Utalii Hotel, who were taken through basic coaching by FIFA Instructor Jacqueline Shipanga.
“As a Federation, we are looking to invest in young women through coaching education and referees training, and we expect that they will share the knowledge at the grassroots,” said FKF General Secretary Robert Muthomi during the closing ceremony of the course.
“We will also fully support the participants, in line with our long-term goal of developing women football at the grassroots,” he added.
FKF Deputy President Doris Petra, in the meantime, officially rolled out the Kisumu edition which will run for a week, with a referees training also underway in Meru.
A leadership workshop for elected women representatives has also been lined up in January next year.
