New F.A. Technical Director, Marcos Falopa, has been hard at work both on and off the field in his short time with the Association, planning Coaching Events and training the U15 Boys team.
Falopa was first exposed to the young boys as part of the delegation that went to Puerto Rico for the GPS Tournament back in January and has since been hard at work with them in preparation for tournaments in St Maarten and the CONCACAF U15 Championship to be held in Florida.
Falopa believes “that it is important to develop and have success from the Grassroots levels up to senior teams” and hopes to get the Boys to play the ball on the ground like all top teams.
“The Boys need to have better exposure in all aspects of the game from technical fundamentals to tactical awareness, but also we need to get the Coaches better too”
Falopa, has also visited many Schools to hold sessions, getting around in a car provided in a joint deal between the F.A. and VI Motors of Duffs Bottom and has also spoken to many of the Coaches involved in After School, Club and Schools coaching.
Following a well-attended Grassroots Coaching Seminar, which is the first step in the F.A.’s new Coaching Programme, Falopa will be hosting stage 2 at the end of April, which is a 3-day Course featuring both theory and practical.
The course begins April 26th and will be run on consecutive Wednesday’s until 10th May from 4.30pm until 6.30pm
