FAS conducts second part of online workshop series on national playing philosophy
SINGAPORE, 12 AUGUST 2021 – The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) recently concluded the second part of a new online workshop series that allows football coaches from the National Registry of Coaches (NROC) the opportunity to find out more about the national playing philosophy.
Developed by the FAS as part of the Unleash the Roar (UTR) national project, the three-part virtual series is also part of the FAS’ efforts to develop local coaches by improving their knowledge and expertise through the Continuing Coach Education (CCE) programme. The first part was conducted in June; each session runs for around one hour.
Helmed by FAS Coach (National Youth Teams) Philippe Aw, who is also a FAS Coach Developer, the second part was conducted on 30 July 2021. Focusing on the Four Core Skills (running with the ball, striking the ball, first touch and 1v1) of the philosophy, the session was attended by 110 participants.
Aw told FAS.org.sg: “In the first workshop, we introduced the National Playing Philosophy and Style and Tactical Rules. This time, we moved on to the Four Core Skills, which underpins what was covered in the first session. We need our players to be technically proficient so we wanted the coaches to know and understand what to educate our young players. In the webinar, I shared with them some training examples to bring these four core skills to life.”
FAS Head, Coach Education & Development, Zainudeen Hassan added: “We are grateful to CoachSG for supporting us in reaching out to all active registered coaches. We have seen an increase in participation. The questions that we received during and after the session from the coaches are heart-warming to note. Our next session will be on 10 September, Friday and will specifically cover three topics: Understanding what is a Coaching Philosophy, The National Coaching Philosophy (includes Coaching methodology) and Examples of Linear vs Non-linear training.”
