Quamie Wants LFA to Host Periodic Regional Training

first_imgDeputy Minister Andy Quamie suggests LFA should organize periodic training for administratorsDeputy Sports Minister Andy Quamie has called on the Liberia Football Association (LFA) to host periodic training ahead of every football season.Quamie, a CAF and FIFA match commissioner and inspector, was speaking in Buchanan during the first phase of two-day regional training from 25-27 January.He lectured on football administration to participants from the sub-associations of Margibi, River Cess and hosts Grand Bassa.Quamie said he was grateful to the executive committee for the training and his preferment as a facilitator in the training.“I am not sure if this is the first [the LFA organized such training], but most of the people who attended are their first time attending administrative courses.“The last time I ever attended an administrative course in Liberia was Futuro II, which was organized by FIFA in 1997/1998 and this is the first Liberian-organized training that I have attended,” he said.Quamie praised the LFA for decentralizing the training and said the periodic course will go a long way in improving football.“Every year we can organize one in Gbarnga, Ganta and other places so that administrators will have the opportunity of knowing their role.“Most of the people, who attended this training didn’t know their roles. We started with the major lesson of a president interfering with the work of coaches. So we explained the functions of a president, secretary-general, coach and team manager.“When everybody knows his/her role, the president will not leave the VIP stands to go to the coach to interfere with his job because when you interfere, how can you say you want to fire him?” Quamie asked.LFA director of referees, Ebenezer Stanley Konah and referee fitness instructor, Jay Exodus Flanjay, who are former FIFA-badged referees, former soccer head coach Kaetu Smith, and medic Boakai Kamara, facilitated the sessions on refereeing, coaching, and sports medicine.The sub-associations of Grand Gedeh, Maryland and hosts River Gee also gathered in Fish Town for similar training.Former LFA referee committee chairman, Mason Chumud Goe and referee fitness instructor, Joseph Momolu Hoff, who are also former FIFA-badged referees; LFA director of women’s football Francis Tamba, who serves as CAF education officer; Emmanuel Bafford and Lydia Grant Boi, served as facilitators.“The participants were enthusiastic. They were hungry for knowledge. I have been conducting training but I have not seen such enthusiasm from the participants,” said Tamba.“They were willing to even sit on blocks or on the bare ground just to obtain knowledge. My only regret is that the leadership of the county wasn’t receptive to us but the training went well in Fish Town,” he added.Each sub-association presented five medics, 10 administrators, 15 referees, and 25 coaches, bringing the participants to 330.The second phase runs run from February 1-3 in Tubmanburg and will include the sub-associations of Gbarpolu, Grand Cape Mount and Bomi counties.Facilitators will include former FIFA-badged referees Alex Nagbo and Sylvester Johnson; coaches Francis Tamba and Lucretius Togba; Dr. Torsu Jallabah and former LFA vice president for administration, Pennoh Bestman.Each sub-association will present five medics, 10 administrators, 15 referees, and 25 coaches, bringing the participants to 165.Sinoe, Grand Kru and Montserrado sub-associations should have been part of the previous training but they will form part of the final training along with Nimba, Lofa and Bong sub-associations.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
