AFC Bournemouth’s Community Sports Trust have branched their delivery out to South Africa, with live webinars taking place via Zoom.
The coaching webinar, which is the first in a series, will see the trust work with coaches and players based in South Africa over the coming months, as part of the club’s South Africa Community Football project.
This week’s workshop, titled ‘Coaching Styles’, gave an insight into why we coach, the types of coach and developing your own philosophy.
Over the coming weeks, coaches will also cover topics including session planning and coaching for development. Players will also be invited to webinars covering topics including nutrition, stretching and analysis.
Speaking after the first webinar, head of community Steve Cuss spoke with afcb.co.uk.
“As part of the South Africa Community Football project, we are pleased to be offering a series of webinars for coaches and players as we develop a project to benefit them both.”
Steve Bezuidenhout of SoccerTech added his thoughts: "The first webinar was fantastically presented and we are grateful for the work the Community Sports Trust is doing in South Africa.
“We look forward to the future events in the project."
These webinars form part of a wider project between the Community Sports Trust, SoccerTech and Switched on Education. This is temporarily paused in line with Covid-19 restrictions.
