Coaching course for women slated for Mariental

by Rodney Pienaar


About 25 women will be taking part in a Basic Coaching Course that is aimed at improving the relationship between female coaches and the girl child, at Mariental from Friday until Sunday. 

This will equip female coaches with the necessary skills such as being teachers of life skills to the girl child in the Galz and Goals programme, the programme's technical manager Astrid Vries said.

“It is not easy to understand what these girls are going through as young girls at their tender ages. So the course is not only aimed at coaching the girls to play football but also has modules on how coaches can interact with the girl child,” she said. 

She added that the course had done justice between girls and coaches in the past and it is necessary to have it in all the regions where the Galz and Goal programme has been implemented.

Coaches from Keetmanshoop are also expected to take part in the upcoming BCC, Vries has stated. 

“Yes, if the coming weekend it is for the coaches that are based in the southern part of the country and we have taken the course to many towns before and it was successful. We are looking forward to a fun and kowledge sharing course over the weekend. This course helps in many ways,” she said. 

She added that since the coaches are working with girls, they find it easy to open up to them.

Vries said that,“ the programme has been sponsored by UNICEF and the former Brave Gladiators coach Jacky Shipanga will be conducting the courses.”
