Women's coaching course held

The Cayman Islands Football Association hosted the FIFA Women’s Coaching Course at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex last week.

The course was aimed at teaching participants the basics of coaching relative to women’s football with the goal of increasing the number of qualified coaches who are involved with both the girls’ and women’s leagues on island.

With more than 30 registrants but only 30 spaces, the course attracted high interest, which highlights the increasing popularity in women’s football.

CIFA acting president Bruce Blake said he is pleased with the interest and shows it demonstrates the desire of young coaches to get involved with the women’s game, which he hopes will translate to making the leagues much more active and push women’s football to new heights. The CIFA Women’s League will be played on Sundays this season alongside its male counterpart, the Cayman Premier League.
