FIFA and US Soccer is hosting the FIFA Futuro III Coaching Education course currently at Grande Sports World. The coaching course is being led by legendary coach Dick Bate, the elite English FA Coaching Manager.
In addition, the coaching educators will be coaching the Real Salt Lake-Arizona Academy players throughout the week to illustrate their coaching topics and points.
FUTURO III focuses on the education of member association instructors in the topics of coaching, refereeing, administration and management and sports medicine. Participants in this programme are expected to be actively teaching in their member associations, both before and after the course.
Format of Futuro III Programme
FUTURO III courses use a regional format, assembling and educating instructors selected by the member associations from neighbouring countries in a centralised venue. A maximum of two instructors per member association may participate in any one course, depending on the qualifications of the applicants and size of the country. As such, up to ten countries can benefit from a single FUTURO III course. It is intended that the instructors participating in this programme are active at the end of each course, and as such, relevant activity plans will be elaborated by the participating member associations with the support of FIFA. A yearly allocation of courses that endeavours to touch all regions will be decided upon by FIFA. The courses should be held at facilities financed through the FIFA Goal and/or FAP projects wherever possible.
