Coaches offered big prize

2016-08-10 06:00

ONE local school soccer coach stands the chance to gain international soccer coaching experience at the Danone Nations Cup world finals.

This opportunity of a lifetime is offered by Millé, a Danone Nations Cup partner, to coaches who lead their school teams in the Danone Nations Cup Natio-nal Finals.

The winning coach will be given the opportunity to learn a lot while attending the finals which will be staged in Paris, France, from 14 to 16 October this year.

Millé has been providing kits to the Danone Nations Cup teams from the provincial finals to the national finals for the past three years.

Millé will reward a coach that managed to get his or her team to the national finals.

To get a team to the national finals requires hard work, dedication and commitment in training these young South African footballers.

The winning coach will travel with a Millé representative, as well as the Danone media team, to the world finals in France.

The package includes travel, accommodation, all meals and accreditation to all three days of games and a couple of excursions to experience some of the local culture.

The winning coach will also benefit from seeing how other international coaches manage their teams, how they cope with a match build-up and how they manage games.

They will further be offered an opportunity to evaluate different approaches to the game of football, learn how other countries conduct team selection, observe communication between players on and off the field, and learn about the general organisation of international events.

The judging panel includes professio-nals, led by the Sundowns scouts who attended most of the provincial finals and were present at the national finals.

The winning coach will have needed to have shown high levels of team organisation, discipline, structure, spirit and effective communication skills throughout the duration of the tournament.

Terms and conditions apply.

Danone has acknowledged that the prize is an extremely valuable gesture from Millé, since providing a local coach with such an experience would not only benefit the winning school, but also the surrounding schools, as well as South African football as a whole.
