7th AFC Coach Education Panel meeting

Kuala Lumpur: The AFC Coach Education Panel continued to make great strides in its seventh meeting at the AFC House on Wednesday. 

The panel continued their discussion on the AFC Coaching Convention - which serves as a valuable tool in the education of the Continent’s technicians by establishing rules and guidelines for the education of Asia’s future coaches - and explored on ways to further streamline the application process before panel member Michel Sablon of Singapore shared the findings of his assessment visit to Japan.

Ten new applications for the Convention were also received, and the panel members were appointed to begin their evaluation.

AFC Technical Director Andy Roxburgh, who led the panel meeting, said: “The Convention will set higher minimum standards, where new guidelines would be put in place. It will also become an opportunity for MAs to be accountable for developing their own coaches.”

Special programmes for the education of women coaches were also touched upon before examining the requirements and key qualities of future tutors and coach educators.

The minimum coaching requirements for AFC Competitions were also among the topics discussed.
