Zisca to conduct coaching courses

BULAWAYO - The Zimbabwe Soccer Coaches Association (Zisca) Bulawayo Province is calling upon aspiring and practicing coaches to enrol in their forthcoming coaching courses that are set to get underway today at Eveline High School.

Zisca Bulawayo Province secretary, Marko Dube told the Daily News on Sunday that a total of three courses will be held in the city in the coming weeks.

“We have a Level One coaching course that will run from March 10 until March 16 and this one offers an opportunity for unqualified coaches to get their coaching certificates before the new season gets underway,” Dube said.

“A Level Two coaching course will then follow a week later and will run from March 24 to April 01. This will be a followed by a Level Three coaching course that is scheduled for April 7 and will run up to April 18.”

Aspiring coaches will have to part with $80 to take part in the Level One course while the course fee for the Level Two course is $100 and the Level Three course is pegged at $120.

Participants will be provided with lunch.

Former national team and Zimbabwe Saints coach Gibson Homela will conduct the courses and his assistant will be veteran coach Cosmas “Tsano” Zulu.

Dube urged coaches to register for the courses and acquire certificates to avoid falling foul of regulations that require all practicing coaches to be qualified.

“It is now mandatory that every practicing coach must be qualified and this therefore means that the higher the qualification, the better the chances of coaching at a higher level.

“So I would therefore urge those coaches without certificates and those with Level One and Two to come and register and better their knowledge and qualifications,” Dube said.
