The five day training was led by FIFA Fitness Instructor Andre Waugh of Jamaica. Participants underwent strength, speed, agility, power and endurance training, as well as proper techniques for warming up and cooling down before and after matches. Each individual skill is essential to improve one’s ability during game time, but also to ensure safety during the matches and training regimens.

Thus providing a foundation for their football aspirations be it as a player or coach. I want to encourage all who are involved on coaching to take time out to better equip themselves. Do not be afraid to accept that we do not know it all and if there are people around who we believe know a little more than us do not hesitate to ask for help,” said Noralez.32 Alex Noralez completes training-3
