CebuFA 'to send' coach to Japan

THE Cebu Football Association (CebuFA) will send a youth coach for a one week training in Fukushima Japan by the Japan Football Association (JFA) on March.

“The course involves theoretical and practical sessions, coaching practice
and written test. It is designed for coaches handling players in the “golden age", U-12. JFA National Coaching Staff will conduct this course and successful participants will be given JFA "C" License,” CebuFA president Jonathan Maximo said in an email to Sun.Star.

According to the CebuFa they will nominate the candidates to the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) and each candidate must “actively involved in the development within the CebuFA, can read and write in English and must be physically fit.

The PFF Technical Development committee will deliberate on the credentials of all nominees before forwarding them to the JFA. The JFA, which will shoulder the accommodation, meals and airport transfers, will just inform the PFF if the nominated coach can participate as slots in the seminar are limited.

According to Maximo, this is one benefits for coaches who choose to affiliate with CebuFA and the PFF.

Meanwhile, the University of San Jose Recoletos stumbled in its bid to join the national finals after losing its two matches in the PFF regional eliminations in Dumaguete City over the weekend.

USJ-R, which earned the right after both Hiroshi and Crazy Horse were barred from participating, lost to Dumaguete City, 4-1 in its first game and had to beat Bacolod City, by six goals in its second to advance to the nationals.

However, against Bacolod, who had Southeast Asian Games veteran Arnie Pasinabo in its lineup, they fell short, dropping a close, 1-0 match.
