Tahiti technical centre comes alive

In Tahiti there are 172 coaches registered with FTF, with the first two coaching workshops for 2014 bringing together only those who are currently actively in clubs located in Tahiti and Moorea.
Eight clubs represented Tahiti – Papara, Pirae, Arue, Venus, l’OM, TAC, Vaiete and Vairao – while four clubs travelled from Moorea – Tapuhute, Tearaa, Temanava and Tiare Anani – to learn more about the ways of coaching which will best benefit their young charges.
The 40 participants will be principally responsible for developing young footballers out of the 3, 486 registered players agaed from six to 14 years old.
As well as teaching them the ins and outs of the game, and nuturing their talent, the coaches will also be charged with identifying talented footballers to bring together annually with an eye on future FIFA tournaments – the first of which will be the FIFA U-17 World Cup which is held every two years.
Education of coaches and the development of young players is at the heart of the federation’s core principles.
Not only does FTF hope to see future professionals and internationals coming thorugh their technical centre and programmes, but they want to instill the importance of hard work, respect, punctuality and sharing.
The essence of FTF’s coaching philosophy is: “A good footballer is also a responsible, independent, united and committed citizen”.
