FUFA Technical Director, Ali Mwebe notes that this course was warmly embraced by the federation because the country has not been doing well in coach educators.

The Federation (FUFA) embraced this course because we have not been doing well in the area of coaches’ educators. We don’t have enough and quality, very few are top-level with the numbers also not enough with some regions almost having no resident educator. This course will give them a chance to have their abilities, qualities, and skills identified. They will not become FUFA Coaches educators right away, but we will identify skills. We believe this is a wonderful development working with Uganda Youth Football Associations.
