The “Girls Football Coaching Course” project involves the education of women’s coaches as well as the development of grassroots football for girls from 7 to 12 years of age.
This is the second seminar for football women’s coaches out of five planned. It started today at the FF BH Training Centre in Zenica and will last until Friday, 13th December.
Project Implementation Advisor from FA Norway, Onar Nymoen, says about this seminar:
“The aim of the course is to encourage as many girls as possible to play football. In order to achieve this, we must educate female coaches. In this seminar we will present them various activities related to working with the youngest ages. We try to motivate young coaches to work with children, but also to promote women’s football.”
Coach Safeta Kavaz stated:
“First of all, I would like to thank the FF BH for giving me the opportunity to participate in this seminar. This is an opportunity for us, young coaches, to gain new knowledge and to be able to help our clubs locally. Given that the Federation has also launched U-13 competitions for girls, this is an indication that women’s football in our country can only go ascending.”
Another seminar participant, Nejra Halać, is pleased to be a part of this course:
“This seminar is a very nice experience for me. I would like to see more girls involved in the development of women’s football in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I look forward to hanging out with other girls doing the same job as I do, as well as gaining new knowledge.”
