Liberia Football Association (LFA) Technical Director Mr. Henry Browne will join fellow CAF Technical Director in the Moroccan city of Rabat on Wednesday to attend a CAF Technical Directors’ workshop from 15-17 February.
The Technical Department of all members association remains key in football development. This workshop is coming at a time when many praises are been showered onto the local FA, but less on the technical capacity of the FA in the implementation of football development programmes. It coming at an opportune time when football in Liberia is undergoing positive transformation aimed at ensuring the country’s success both at the national, regional and international levels according to many fans in street corners.
The Morocco workshop objectives are to help the directors apply for the coaching courses using the competitions management system (CMS) and to apply following the new coaching convention.
Mr. Browne, along with other technical directors, will present a technical report of Liberia FA for 2019 and an activity plan for 2020 the Liberia FA . The statement of the Liberia FA revealed that Caf will bear the travel expenses, accommodation and local transportation in Morocco while the LFA will provide per diems. This is Browne’s third technical director’s meeting since his appointment by LFA President Mustapha Raji in December 2018, having been to Egypt in January and South Africa in May 2019 respectively.
“This workshop is intended to increase the number of qualified coaches on the continent and to make it much easier in accessing information from coaches using the CMS. “The new licensing system requires all coaches to be computer literate because a portion of their exams will be done online. So this meeting is very important to the development of the African game,” Browne said.
Liberiasports Online, research can confirm that the workshop will help in fine-tuning what the technical director need to do, and we will have to look at making it relevant to their association But the challenge of these training has been how to monitor and support the programmes of these technical directors by the FA . Currenttly The FIFA Forward program allocates USD$1.25 million to each member association and we want to ensure that the technical directors have access to those funds to implement projects in the areas covered by the workshop.”
