TCIFA Hosts FIFA Advanced Women's Coaching Course


Great coaches in football have driven players to excellence for ages. When coaches perform more effectively, the overall outcome on such impressionable players is undeniably beneficial. Following on from the success of FIFA’s Basic and Intermediate Women’s Coaching Courses in 2015 and 2016, respectively, the Turks & Caicos Islands Football Association (TCIFA) hosted an Advanced Women’s Coaching Course over the past week.  This course  reflected the progressive development of all the elements of coaching expertise.  The course provided participants with an increased knowledge base that will ultimately maximize their skills and performance in undertaking specialized female training sessions.

With the increasing number of young players registering with the TCIFA Youth Development Football Programmes, and a developing Senior Women’s Football Programme, specialized coaching represents a considerable challenge. In order to rectify this, the TCIFA offers all Coaching Courses free of charge to existing and prospective coaches, in addition to providing travel assistance for those presently coaching in the TCIFA programmes.

Andrea Rodebaugh, Manager of Club Tijuana in the Liga MX Feminil, returned to conduct the Advanced Women’s Coaching Course on Providenciales, where participants were exposed to key aspects relevant to coaching players in the girls and women’s programme. The intense four-day course involved both theory and technical sessions, with a guarantee high quality coaching education.
