AmaZulu U15 coach, Justice Mtshali is on course to earn a new feather in his hat following completing the first phase of his SAFA Level 2 Coaching Qualification in Durban on Sunday, 26 February 2012.
The strenuous yet challenging 11 days spent in the classroom according to Mtshali was a much needed eye opener in the ever changing trends of modern football.
“The content of the course was divided in two phases. The next half will resume in April 9th to May 2nd, and there we will come back with how we’ve implemented all the cases studied on the principles of training methods, sport medicines, nutrition and recovering patterns of players.
“Most importantly how perhaps it takes for players to recover when we train them so as to guard against fatigue, in my case the younger players,” the coach said.
The 41 year old youth coach has in the past held his own in the field as well, having once played for African Wanderers.
He told AmaZulufc.net that that the highlight of this informative FIFA accredited course was ‘sharing the desk’ with Bloemfontein Celtics head coach, Clinton Larsen.
Whom he describes as “an inspiration to us young coaches because his coming shows that even if you’re already coaching in the top flight you must further your knowledge”.
Among other of his highlights was the presence of former Bafana Bafana midfielder Thabo Mngomeni.
As a kind gesture in support of the programme AmaZulu Head of Development, Ronnie Moroka in the company of General Manager, Peter O’Connor gave a presentation on the 2010 World Cup’s influence in the ABSA Premiership playing styles.
