Coaches to aid growth in women’s game

Around 30 coaches from the three main regions – Northern, Southern and Loyalty Islands – will spend the next five days at Stade PLGC in Nouméa covering the theory and practice of coaching women’s football.
The course is being run by FIFA Women’s Football Instructor Sonia Haziraj, a former France representative, with FCF Technical Director Serge Martinengo de Novak and OFC Women’s Development Officer Nicola Demaine also in attendance.
FCF Women’s Development Officer and course coordinator Patrick Hnaissilin hopes the course will help drive the development of women’s football in the French territory.
“Above all the objective of this course is to promote and educate the coaches specifically for women’s football,” Hnaissilin says.
“It’s important to have the opportunity to share our experiences and unite development in the three provinces represented this week in Noumea.”
The FIFA and OFC instructors were welcomed by FCF president Edmond Bowen at the youth finals of the Coupe de Calédonie at Stade Numa Daly on Sunday, where they were called upon to help present the trophies to the winning teams.
Bowen says the staging of such a course is an excellent opportunity for the development of the world game in New Caledonia as it will allow women’s football to continue progressing.
