SLFA Launches Week-Long Training for Female Football Administrators and Coaches

The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA), in collaboration with the Confédération Africaine de Football (CAF), has initiated a week-long administrative training program for female football administrators and a Licence D Coaching course for female coaches across the country. This groundbreaking event is being held at the Police Hall in Kingtom and aims to enhance the roles of women in football administration and coaching within Sierra Leone.


The opening ceremony of this landmark training program was graced by several notable figures, including Acting General Secretary Mohamed Benson Bawoh, CAF Female Coaching Instructor Mrs. Majidah Nantanda from Uganda, Female Administrative Instructor Thubaelihle Bridgette Sibanda from Zimbabwe, SLFA Technical Director Ibrahim Bah, SLFA TMS Manager and Head of Female Football Miriam Heroe, SLFA Head of Schools Program and Facility Officer Samuel Davies, and SLFA Competition Officer Abdul Karim Kabba. Their attendance highlighted the significant collaborative effort behind this initiative.


This training marks the first time CAF has extended such specialized administrative and coaching courses to women in Sierra Leone. Participants will have the opportunity to earn the Licence D certificate, which is a crucial step in enhancing their professional capabilities. This initiative underscores the commitment of SLFA President Thomas Daddy Brima and his Executive Committee to advancing the roles of women in football.


SLFA Technical Director Ibrahim Bah expressed his gratitude for the opportunity provided by CAF, noting the positive impact this training will have on women's confidence and administrative skills within their respective clubs. In his opening remarks, Acting General Secretary Mohamed Benson Bawoh thanked CAF for their support and encouraged the participants to apply their newly acquired knowledge to further develop football in Sierra Leone.


CAF experts Mrs. Majidah Nantanda and Thubaelihle Bridgette Sibanda commended the efforts of CAF and SLFA in creating this platform, assuring the participants that the training would significantly empower and promote women’s football in the country. This comprehensive training course reflects the SLFA’s ongoing commitment to developing women’s football and providing opportunities for female administrators and coaches to excel.
