QFA launches development course for trainers
DOHA: QFA has joined hands with Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to launch a workshop for trainers.
The opening ceremony was attended by Fahd Thani, Director of the Development Department of QFA, and Fahad Fakhro, the AFC lecturer, and the Assistant Lecturer of the course.
Theoretical and practical sessions will be extensively projected during the workshop, officials said.
“I would like to express my thanks and appreciation on behalf of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al-Thani, President of the Qatar Football Association, and members of the Executive Office of QFA, to the lecturers and students participating in the course,” Fahd Thani said in his opening remarks.
“I would like to thank the AFC for agreeing to hold this course, which has a great diversity of participants from Qatar, Oman and Kuwait, from current and former football stars. I am also very pleased to thank the QFA for organizing this course in an effort to train trainers and obtain certificates that contribute to the development of Qatari and regional football,” he added.
Fahd Thani added that the training course for level B is different from the courses that preceded it because it is more profound and deals with practical and theoretical topics in an extensive manner, noting that this course is of great importance because it puts the coach on the practical path and qualifies him to work in clubs.
Mr. Fahed Fakhro, the lecturer in the course, thanked the QFA for the interest in education through training courses.
“One of the most important achievements of the current session is the presence of a large group of current and former stars who have been motivated by the desire to learn and work to participate in the tournament,” Fahd Fakhro said.
Former players participating in the workshop include Ahmed Mubarak, the captain of the Omani team, Walid Muhiuddin,Khaled Al-Jabarti, Saad Saleh, Walid Jassim, Ali Rahma Al Marri, Bilal Abdul Rahman, and Mohammed Saad Al Khraitiyat.
The course is attended by 27 students and is held in two phases – the first ends on the 14th of this month. The second will be held from April 7 to 20.
