AmaZulufc.net was on hand as development coaches dedicated the past weekend to equipping youngsters with the basic skills on a coaching course held in KwaNdengezi a township near Pinetown which was attended by 110 players.
It is every young boy’s dream or desires to one day make it into the big time in football, but not many get the chance to see it come to life.
Head of Development coach, Ronnie Moroka and former youth coach for Jomo Cosmos highlighted the significance of hosting the clinics.
“The coaching clinic is created to mentor young boys on football skills that are practised by professional players and to also teach their coaches appropriate coaching techniques.
I think the programme was a success and mostly the attendance was overwhelming, some people came from Hammarsdale and Shongweni Dam,” said Moroka.
The young boys got a chance to mix with former AmaZulu great, Joel Faya who is now Head of Scouting at Usuthu. ‘Mlilo’ enjoyed giving out the latest drills and exercises which he joked “even some professional struggle to endure”.
The clinics were hosted with assistance from Ubumbano Community Project and the organization’s Secretary Thulani Zungu heaped up praise for the outcome.
“I could not believe that AmaZulu could come to this small township. We are pushing this project to keep these boys away from drugs and crime.
Today I learnt new things and other coaches have been elevated to another level.
What I liked most was that the language of coaches was excellent, I did not hear any scolding but they were teaching with passion.
I am grateful and I hope they will come again soon,”said Zungu.Share
