La Liga team up with Cosafa for coaches workshops


La Liga will be sharing their expertise and know-how with coaches within the COSAFA region, as well as guests from Ethiopia, in the coming weeks with a series of virtual workshops for both male and female tacticians.

The Masterclass sessions aimed at grassroots coaches will be conducted by Juan Florit, Head of LaLiga Football Programs, and Saúl Vázquez Chas, LaLiga Senior Specialist in Football Projects Development.

They will focus on training methodology and will shine a light on best practises in how to structure sessions.

These workshops will take place today, April 21 and May 5.

“We are delighted that LaLiga will share their expertise with our coaches across the region and recognise that this is a magnificent opportunity for those taking part to learn from the very best,” said COSAFA Secretary General Sue Destombes.

“When we signed our partnership agreement with LaLiga in 2020, one of our major focusses was the development of our coaches. The quality of coaching does directly impact the calibre of players you will produce. The goal of all of us in the Southern African region is to develop world-class players in men’s and women’s football,” she said.

There will also be sessions for professional coaches to be held on April 28 and May 12 that touch on the preparation of squads for international competitions and the development of grassroots squads.
