[May 11, 2020 – Harmon, Guam] Thirteen of the region’s licensed football coaches officially added another license to their coach education resume – the AFC Level 1 Goalkeeping Coaching Certificate – following passing grades issued by AFC Instructor Yoshio Kato from Japan.
Guam Football Association received the coaches’ official certificates from AFC a few weeks after the course concluded Jan. 31 at GFA.
“One of the key components of football development is coach education, and I am pleased to see more coaches earning higher licenses and specialized licenses like the AFC Goalkeeping Coaching Certificate,” said Sang Hoon Kim, GFA Technical Director. “We have many youth players who show potential to play at high levels and have a passion to succeed, but they also must be coached properly to reach their potential. This is why coach education is so important. I hope to see more of Guam’s coaches taking part in coach education courses, especially ones here in Guam – whether it’s to earn licenses through the GFA “D” Coaching Course and AFC courses, or for enrichment. Currently licensed coaches also should take part in local courses as a refresher, as football trends change all the time.”.....
