All set for OFC/NZF A Licence

The course will run from 30 November to 11 December and offers its 26 participants the highest coaching qualification available in the Oceania region.
The A Licence will be led by OFC Head of Education Didier Chambaron and New Zealand Football Technical Director Rob Sherman.
Experienced Danish coach Flemming Serritslev – a former coach of the Denmark U-21 and Armenia U-21 sides – will also attend as a mentor as part of UEFA’s support of the course.
Chambaron says the course is vital to ensuring football continues to improve among OFC Member Associations.
“There is a real need and appetite for this course in the Oceania region, and we are happy to be able to deliver it alongside New Zealand Football,” Chambaron says.
“We all know how important having expert coaches is to the overall development of football, and we see this as a great opportunity to lift the standard to a new level.
“Having Flemming Serritslev attend will be of huge value to the coaches, given his vast experience with both international and club teams.
“The next two weeks are the start of a year-long journey for these coaches, and we are very excited to be part of that.”
The 26 attendees come from six of the OFC’s Member Associations, with coaches from New Zealand, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Cook Islands, Fiji and Tonga.
Over 12 months the course will feature continuous assessment of the coaches, with participants visited at least twice for practical monitoring.
