Participants at the FAS Grassroots Level 1 Course, 27 March 2022
SINGAPORE, 1 APRIL 2022 – The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) successfully concluded a FAS Grassroots Level 1 Coaching Course over the weekend for Singapore Football Coaches Association, an FAS-affiliated member.
Twenty participants were in attendance during a theory online session on 26 March before they underwent a practical session the next day at the Uber Sports facility at ORTO, located at Khatib. The practical session was conducted in strict compliance with the current COVID-19 measures, where all involved adhered to the current safe management measures.
The entire course was conducted under the mentorship of FAS Coach Developers, Mr Loh Ngiap Tai and Mr Toni Teo. This is the third Grassroots course conducted this year.
Mr Loh told FAS.org.sg: “It’s always a joy to see passionate coaches committing their time to learn and grow in their coaching skills. We are glad to be able to facilitate this training experience to help these coaches create a positive impact in their football communities.”
Mr Lionel Teo, one of the participants, was impressed with the conduct and guidance, and encouraged other aspiring coaches to take the same step.
“The course was well-run and facilitated by both Coach Developers Mr Toni Teo and Mr Ngiap Tai,” he said. “The lessons were clearly delivered, objectives were met. Both Coach Developers shared relevant experiences, anecdotes, and examples to give the participants sufficient guidance and direction. This was a great course for aspiring individuals to be introduced progressively to the art and science of coaching. It covered the fundamentals and relevant aspects of football coaching theory without being too overwhelming and intimidating to newcomers. I could tell that all participants enjoyed themselves and were able to take away good learning points. On the whole, the course was well-conducted and one which I would recommend others to join.”
