FIFA coaching course

FIFA will host a Coaching Course from November 30 to December 4, which will focus on the coaching of female players. The course will be under the instruction of well known former England international footballer, Hope Powell. The course, which will be held at the JFF Football Centre, UWI, will have as participants coaches from the Sherwin Williams Women's League, selected former national female players, national coaches and representatives of parish associations.

The JFF has also invited GC Foster College, University of Technology and the Ministry of Education to send representatives.

Powell, who has parental roots in Jamaica, is a former international football player who was the coach of the England women's national football team and the Great Britain women's Olympic football team up until 2013. She won 66 caps for England, making her debut for England at the age of 16 and played in the 1995 FIFA Women's World Cup. At 31 she became the youngest ever coach of an England national football team, as well as the first woman and first black person to hold that position.

The JFF's coaching development programme is supported by the Joan Duncan Foundation of the Jamaica Money Market Brokers.
