Tatsuma shares expertise with local coaches
SINGAPORE, 1 AUGUST 2019 – Local football coaches had the opportunity to learn from Singapore National Team coach Tatsuma Yoshida last Thursday, 25 July during a Football Association of Singapore (FAS) Continuing Coaching Education (CCE) session.
The Japanese, who took up his role earlier this year, took the CCE session and imparted his methodology through theory and practical aspects to 40 coaches, who came from Singapore Premier League clubs, the FAS Under-14 League, schools, football academies, women’s football and ActiveSG Academy.
Zainudeen Hassan, FAS Head of Coach Education, said: “Every young coach in Singapore will want the chance to work with and observe their National Team coach and that is what we have done here. This also shows that Tatsuma is willing to impart his methods and philosophies to our local coaches and he is open to putting up more sessions as long as his busy schedule permits.”
The CCE sessions are held two to three times per month and are put up by various coaching personnel, such as FAS Technical Director Joseph Palatsides, Tatsuma, FAS staff coaches, guest coaches and SPL club coaches. These are conducted with the aim of developing our local coaches by improving their knowledge and expertise.
Zainudeen added that a Technical Study Group will be formed when Singapore hosts the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-16 Championship Qualifier in September.
