Eastern Region two-day admin course kicks off

FOOTBALL administrators from the Eastern Region have been presented with an opportunity to equip themselves with necessary knowledge to run their teams with ZIFA conducting an administration course starting today.

The two-day course runs until tomorrow at Chevron Hotel in Masvingo. It is being hosted by the ZIFA Eastern Region and is targeting mainly administrators from the region's 16 Division One clubs. Eastern Region chairman Davison Muchena said they requested for the course to try and equip their administrators with the requisite knowledge to run their teams.

The course will be conducted by national technical director Wilson Mutekede and former ZIFA education officer Brian Moyo. Participants will pay $20.

"Actually, we requested for the course from the national association mainly because we wanted our councillors to be equipped administration wise. We requested it for our teams' administrators.

"However, this is a chance for everyone within the region to come and learn. We are also looking at provincial administrators, those who can afford the $20 to come, they can come. So we are not restricting to our teams only.

"In terms of numbers we are looking at a minimum of 40. We had requested from our teams, because we have 16 teams, we had asked our teams to at least send two people, so all teams have confirmed they will be sending two representatives. So we have 32 from our teams only, then here and there we have the provincial guys wanting to come," said Muchena.

Muchena said they last had such a course in 2009 and urged the administrators to grab this opportunity to equip themselves with the necessary knowledge and skills.

"Well it's an eye-opener to the Eastern Region. The last administrators' course we had was in 2009 by Mr (Jonathan) Mashingaidze. We have been having some courses for coaches, but on the administration side we were lacking, so this is important for our administrators.

"We have told our clubs it's imperative that they send two representatives to make sure we are at the same level. We are going to talk about management, general management, basic football management. Then we are going to go deeper to things like club licensing," said Muchena.
