Hull City coaches are in the country to conduct a coaching camp with 10 local coaches in an initiative aimed at improving football standards in Kenya.
The initiative dubbed ‘Coaches to Count On’ organized by gaming firm SportPesa will entail theory and practical lessons.
The training which will run until Thursday, May 9 at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies (KSMS) is being attended by coaches drawn from across the country.
Seven male and three female coaches qualified for the training. The selection was based on the qualification of a coaching course offered by Football Kenya Federation (FKF) which has been ongoing since 2016.
“We hope to increase the number of qualified coaches at a high-performance standard to send back to the industry. We believe that good coaches are very key in nurturing player talent which then translates to successful teams,” said SportPesa’s Chief Marketing officer, Kelvin Twissa.
The latest training is the third in a month within Africa after similar ones were held in South Africa and Tanzania as part of the partnership deals between SportPesa and its football club partners from the UK.
Arsenal coaches were in South Africa from April 8–April 10 to train local coaches while Southampton trainers held training sessions in Tanzania last week.
Hull City coaches, Daniel O’Keefe and Richard O’Donnell will lead the training sessions in Nairobi.
The Hull City coaches visiting Kenya are accompanied by Senior Account Executive Luke Hall and Commercial Manager Joe Clutterbrook.
SportPesa has since its inception in 2014 held several clinics in collaboration with its football partners Arsenal, Southampton and Hull City where over 50 coaches have been trained on various skills.
