Coordinator of the event Joseph Nyakuromba said they have since approached Zisca to facilitate the coaching clinic which will see outstanding participants being awarded Level One coaching certificates.
Nyakuromba added that they were mainly targeting aspiring coaches from in and around Mutare in an event that will be partly sponsored by Haarlem City which is in Holland.
“We have since approached Zisca to hold a coaching clinic this month with the main aim being to develop coaches from the grassroots level.
“Outstanding participants will definitely get Level One coaching certificates from this clinic,” Nyakuromba said
“Haarlem, a city in Holland, has been working together with the city of Mutare since 1998 to develop sport in the city. They will subsidise the coaches’ participation fees which means instead of paying US$50, the aspiring coaches will have to pay US$20 only.”
Zisca Manicaland chairman James Muhala confirmed this development to Standardsport recently.
“I will be the main instructor at the event. I am looking forward to doing both practicals and theories as requested by the organisers,” Muhala said.
Zisca, led by national chairman Bheki Nyoni, will be looking forward to consolidating their base in Manicaland as the other splinter group, Soccer Coaches Union of Zimbabwe led by Moses Chunga has already made inroads after organising a match pitting members of their union against retired and current coaches from Manicaland last month.
