Sports writer, Cameroon.

Some 27 Cameroonian coaches have completed a five days recycling seminar, at the CAF excellence center in Mbankomo, Yaounde. The seminar that ran from Monday July 27, to Friday July 31, 2020, was aimed at preparing the coaches for future competitions, with the start of the Cameroon league one Championship announced for September ending or early October.

The seminar brought together nine coaches from the different categories of the Cameroon national team, and 18 Elite one coaches. Out of the 20 teams expected to take part in the Cameroon league one Championship for the 2020_2021, only Union Sportive of Douala and Dragon of yaounde, who are seemingly having some managerial problems, did not have representatives in the seminar.

The coaches received eight hours of lessons everyday from 13 instructors, with exchanges focused on the procedures of training, pedagogy, and most especially, how to restart sporting activities after Covid19.

Representing FECAFOOT’s president during the closing ceremony, the national technical director, Serge Noah said he was satisfied with the massive turnout of the coaches and hopes they use the lessons for the seminar, to Foster the growth of Cameroon football.

On their part, the coaches went home satisfied with the lessons acquired.

“Our knowledge has been boasted with new methods of training, we are happy. We had lessons on statistics, whichever is very important in modern coaching, we talked how to elaborate a project. We can say it was a high level seminar. I’m leaving Mbankomo with much knowledge, to add with what we had before.

“The seminar was very enriching. It came at a time when there is a complete reform of the program and the new has never been part of the training of coaches. Today we are talking of statistics, building a project and I think those are welcomed ideas. It has amielorated what we had put in place last year. The exchanges were fruitful and if it continues like that, we will have high level coaches in Cameroon. It is not very easy to get out of the seminar hall and you go directly to the field and implement what was taught. But I think that we are going to try our best so that football in Cameroon will improve.

“It’s been an exciting five days seminar, we’ve had the opportunity to exchange with colleagues, brainstorm with the instructors on issues that concerns performance in football. We’ve also had the opportunity to pick up ideas in some new domains like statistics, information and communication technology and I think we are leaving from here with plenty of knowledge that is going to help us better prepare our teams for the upcoming Championship and improve the development of football in the country”
