THE Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB) in association with Discovery Vitality will be hosting a soccer coaching workshop in Krugersdorp for the coaches of the Silverstar Soccer Stars programme, tomorrow from 9am to 4:30pm.
KNVB sends coaches from the Netherlands to run workshops in South Africa in conjunction with former professional African players.
The training and development of school level coaches is an important part of the Silverstar Soccer Stars development programme, as teachers require formal training to become qualified coaches, and to ensure the development of the children they’re coaching.
The workshop will give coaches proven and age-group specific tools, techniques, methods and knowledge for coaching young soccer players.
The workshop will be taking place at Atlholang Primary School in Krugersdorp, address: 9079 Sebenzisa Drive, Krugersdorp.
If you wish to attend tomorrow, ask for Mpho Sekgoanyane, one of the Silverstar Soccer Stars coaches. The first theory session will be conducted in a classroom after which they’ll move to the soccer pitch for the practical session. Mpho can be reached on 079 0588 264, you can also ask the school’s security guard at the gate for directions to the classroom or pitch.
