FAM holds SL Coaches Refresher course

The Football Association of Malawi will from tomorrow conduct a two-day refresher coaching course for Super League Coaches ahead of the 2024 season.

FAM Technical Director Benjamin Kumwenda said the course, which will be held at Mpira Village in Blantyre, will focus on player performance analysis.

The course will be facilitated by South Africa’s Sinesipho Mali who is currently working as a performance analyst for South Africa National football team.

“We want to bring in the new football coaching trends that are coming in to our coaches and this year the focus will be performance analysis using modern technology.

“The modern game wants coaches to see how strong or weak their opponents are by analyzing their performances and in this way, their preparations for the games will be based on the analysis. We want to equip our coaches with the knowledge on how they can analyse games since most of our games are now on TV and some even have videographers in their teams that take footage during training sessions for coaches to properly asses and observe the players when at home.

“The coaches will also be taught how to cut videos of player performances or those of the opponents for them to easily do their analysis. As FAM, we believe that for us to grow our game, we need to be going with the new trends that are coming so video analysis is one of them. We expect that every modern coach should be computer literate for them grow professionally”, said Kumwenda.

Kumwenda added that the coaches will on Wednesday morning have an interface meeting with the Senior National Team Coach Patrick Mabedi.

“We would like to have a good collaboration between the senior national team coach and the super league coaches because national team players come from the teams so we want the coaches to have a very good working relationship with the national team coach”, he said.

Apart from the Super League Coaches, Senior Women’s and Men’s National team Head Coaches and some selected former Flames players will also take part in the course.
