Fiji Football Association will soon host a symposium for all districts presidents and coaches to educate them more on Fiji FA’s plans in the development of football in the country.
Fiji FA chief executive officer Mohamed Yusuf says it will be day long program designed where they will have an expert from USP and Fiji FA officials.
“We will be getting an expert from USP as well our Vodafone Fiji national coach Christophe Gamel and Fiji FA technical director Ravinesh Kumar to facilitate the daylong seminar, “Yusuf said.
Yusuf said this would be done to put everybody in line with Fiji FA’s plans.
“The symposium will also see that all the coaches need to be contracted with the districts with a specific condition and player’s discipline will also be talked about.”
Yusuf said there were always problems when the players came for the national team and dropped because of consistency.
“Usually we have seen some players when they come into camp they get fit and once they go back into their districts they are not monitored and get unfit or overweight.”
“We want to educate our coaches and districts officials on the importance of a player,”
Yusuf said the main objective of the symposium would be to educate district officials and coached on Fiji FA’s philosophy.
“This will done to educate the district officials and coaches how Fiji FA’s philosophy of possession football works and also the responsibility of the coaches to the districts on the coaching structure.”
Yusuf said it will be compulsory for all district presidents and coaches to attend.
“It will be a must for all district coaches and presidents to attend and if the presidents are not available they can nominate someone on their behalf.
He said they would start with all the Viti Levu districts and then move to Vanua Levu.
