Women’s game focus in Noumea

There are close to 10,000 kilometres separating New Caledonia from Mexico but the distance travelled by Rodebaugh Huitron hasn’t put the FIFA instructor off bringing her brand of women’s football development to the French territory.
Rodebaugh Huitron spent five years with the Mexico national team, a period which included an appearance at the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup in USA.
This week she will spend five days working with 15 coaches and it’s hoped the course will explore what work is required to improve women’s football in New Caledonia.
Federal Council representative Tony Baldovini, FCF general secretary Nicolas Guillemard and technical director Serge Martinengo De Novack were each present at the opening ceremony.
They stated the determination of FCF to see a strong return to developing women’s football in the country, with a short term project expected to see a senior women’s championship return next season.
New Caledonia has 349 registered girls in the U-8 to U-12 age group and this course is expected to help participating coaches understand their needs in terms of health, physiology and general football.
The greater goal is for the nation to present strong challenges on the international stage in the future.
