Botswana train top coaches for CAF A-Licence

The Botswana Football Association (BFA) is holding their first ever CAF A License course, attended by 24 male coaches who are mainly working in the top league of the country. The course will run for a month and this FIFA window will be used as the first phase.

The course is run by the BFA Technical Director Serame Letsoaka, who is also a CAF and FIFA Instructor.

When welcoming the guests Letsoaka said, ‘before today we had only coaches who had CAF B License, which was only qualifying them to coach advanced amateurs. After the course they will now be able to drive processes of football in the country.

“The BFA is happy that the coaches saw it fit to leave their clubs and attend this lucrative course.’’

The course was officially opened by BFA Secretary General Mr Mfolo Mfolo. He encouraged the coaches to work very hard.

“Our national teams do not have a history of success, one maiden appearance at the 2012 AFCON and U17 AFCON appearances is not enough. Just because we have not been as successful as we think we should have been in the past does not mean we should accept the same going forward,’’ Mfolo told the coaches.

Mfolo also said that he was entrusting hope and legacy in the coaches. He said the journey they have started will help them do better and junior teams will be strong even in the leagues they will also be stiff competition.
