In the framework of implementing the Visit Rwanda-Arsenal FC partnership, Ferwafa (The Rwandan Football Federation), in partnership with the Ministry of Sports and Culture (Minispoc), is hosting two Arsenal FC youth coaches, Simon McManus and Kerry Green for a five-day ‘coach-the-coaches’ coaching clinic.
They will lead a coaching clinic for 50 Rwandan coaches from around the country at Amahoro National Stadium from today (Monday) until Friday this week.
The Rwandan coaches, have been recruited from football academies across the country.
The clinic will see the coaches take part in theory sessions in the mornings and practical sessions in the afternoons.
In line with the previous coaching clinic in October last year, this ‘coach-the-coaches’ coaching clinic will deepen the knowledge of the Arsenal coaching philosophy in Rwanda.
The Visit Rwanda-Arsenal FC partnership is not only helping tourists and investors discover the uniqueness of Rwanda as a travel and business destination, it is also meant to ensure that Rwandan young footballers get the opportunity to train and learn from the very best. Arsenal Football Club is renowned for its youth coaching. Young talented Rwandan coaches, will benefit from Arsenal’s experience of producing world class talent.
The Ministry of Sports and Culture has the target to establish a player and coach development pathway which allows and encourages athletes and coaches to gain experience, thereby allowing for continuous growth of technical expertise in coaching, refereeing and player development. This coaching clinic with Arsenal coaches will be used to help achieve this target.
