Belize Coaches Get FIFA Level 1 Training
The new administration that governs the Football Federation of Belize was installed three months ago on March fifteenth. The future of football was the primary concern of both the president elect and the former president of the F.F.B. So three months later, the organization is seeing some of its commitments bear fruit. The F.F.B. brought Gary Stempel, a FIFA Instructor, to Belize to train local coaches. News Five’s Jose Sanchez spoke to the instructor and the players who both agree, that when it comes to training the game has just begun.

Football coaches representing each district have convened at the F.F.B. Goal Project Headquarters in Belmopan for an intensive training session. F.F.B. President Ruperto Vicente says that thirty coaches took advantage of the training opportunity.

“We have Mr. Gary Stempel, who came to us from Panama, a FIFA instructor, who came last week Tuesday and we started a coaching training for twenty-nine coaches in this country on Thursday of last week. And so we are ending our coaching course today. so these twenty-nine coaches were being trained and who have been working the entire week, will now go back into their locals, into their communities and train other coaches and as well participate in training young peers in their communities.”
