Hands-on training

As the second day of the Women’s Football Coaching Course Grassroots Programme continued yesterday at the Wildey, St Michael Astro Turf, several local female coaches got hands-on knowledge on how to conduct a training session with young girls.

About 30 females and one male were guided by FIFA Women’s course instructor, Andrea Rodebaugh, who is in Barbados for the five-day course which started yesterday and will conclude April 18.
