Two of Cayman’s National Football Coaches, Roy Ebanks and Jocelyn Morgan, have been selected to participate in CONCACAF’s Elite Player Development Seminar in Trinidad from Wednesday November 16th – Friday November 18th, 2005.
Both coaches departed for the three day seminar, organized specifically for national coaches, this past weekend. Coach Morgan who serves as National Under 17 Coach formerly coached 2005 Foster’s League champs Western Union FC while, Roy Ebanks serves as National Under 23 Coach and Future FC Head Coach.
The course which is jointly offered by the English FA and CONCACAF forms part of an agreement between the two organizations with the intention of assisting the development of football in the CONCACAF region.
‘This is an opportunity for our coaches to learn from some of the best in their field,’ said CIFA President Jeffrey Webb.
‘The instructors come with a wealth of knowledge and personal experience and have worked extensively with professional football players all over the world…our coaches will be immersed for three days in an intensive program geared at teaching them the basics where elite player development is concerned.
‘They can then come back to Cayman and not only share with fellow local and National Coaches but also apply the knowledge they have gained directly into our national player development program.’
Both coaches from the Cayman Islands will join national coaches from Trinidad, Barbados, Jamaica, St. Kitts, St. Vincent, Belize and a host of other Caribbean nations for exposure to both practical and theoretical aspects of player development in football.
