Coaches association meets SSFL coaches, TTSL and WoLF next

The following is a press statement from the National Football Coaches of Trinidad and Tobago (NFCTT):

The National Football Coaches of Trinidad and Tobago (NFCTT) continued its town hall-styled meetings on Saturday 28th November 2020. The guests of this meeting were the Secondary School Football League (SSFL) Premier Division coaches.

The coaches brought to the fore a number of issues that, if properly addressed, can lead to vital improvements in coaching, the League and the development of youth players on the whole.

Former Trinidad and Tobago Men’s National Senior Team coach Hutson Charles fully endorsed the NFCTT’s plans, whilst St Benedict’s College coach Randolph Boyce also made several useful contributions to the discussion—as did Morvant Caledonia AIA technical director Jamaal Shabazz and AC Port of Spain head coach Walt Noriega, in the previous talk with the Pro League coaches.

In the SSFL meeting, Boyce pointed to the issues in remuneration for coaches at government schools, which is often too meagre to allow the head coach to adequately compensate support staff, trainers/physiotherapists and afford proper equipment.

At 4pm on Saturday 5th December, it will be the turn of the Trinidad and Tobago Super League (TTSL) and Women’s League of Football (WoLF) coaches to contribute to the discussion and to be briefed on what the coaches association offers as well as our plans going forward.
