Mr Michael Brown, FAS Technical Director, said: “We are proud to have the AFC accord us with the Pro Level membership under the Coaching Convention. This achievement is a culmination of the tireless efforts of the FAS Coach Education and Development Department, the Coach Developers as well as the support and guidance from the esteemed members of the AFC Coach Education Panel.
“With this membership, the FAS is one of nine AFC Member Associations, which include Australia, Japan, and Korea, that can now issue the Professional Diploma as well as the ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ Coaching Licenses by conducting suitable courses that are tailored to the needs of the local coaching community while keeping in line with AFC’s guidelines.
