Fifa Admin, management course on next week

Saturday, August 9, 2014

T&T will benefit from a Fifa Members Association (MA) course for Administration and Management which will be held at the VIP Lounge, Hasely Crawford Stadium starting Tuesday.

The course will be conducted by FIFA official Patrick Beckles and will involve participants who are part of the local football fraternity from within various organisations, clubs and the regional associations of the T&T Football Association.

The TTFA’s desired objective for this course is “to develop a cadre of football administrators who can both manage and develop the resources required to achieve substantial football programmes.” 

The four-day course is geared towards thirty (30) participants, ages 25 years and older and is to be an advanced level course.

Whilst the focus of the sessions will address the specific objective identified for focus by the TTFA, the holistic content of the Fifa MA course material will be preserved.

Throughout the course, the participants will be challenged to adopt and adapt best practice principles and existing, successful football programmes to their local situation. Discussion will be encouraged, exchange of ideas and relevance to local situation explored. 

Case Studies will be used throughout to introduce, highlight and reinforce the key concepts being presented. Case Studies will be referred to as teaching moments during the various sessions and as many practical group sessions will be incorporated to enable examination and application of the best practice principles.

TTFA president Raymond Tim Kee is pleased for the opportunity for local officials to engage in next week’s course.

“This is a course that we felt was needed here in T&T and we at the TTFA felt that specifically for our local football administrators, it would serve to improve their knowledge and the understanding of how the game should be run. We’ve targeted the various levels and I expect to see the returns of this in the way we conduct our operations from an administrative side,” Tim Kee said.
