Update: NNL refresher course begins at Remo Stars Sports Complex
The NNL – Nigeria National League refresher course for its coaches has started ahead of the start of the new season.
The three-day programme, which began on Monday, is aimed at upgrading the knowledge of coaches in the league.
Forty coaches are currently participating in the programme at the Remo Stars Stadium, Ikenne.
The Director-General of the National Institute for Sports (NIS), Prof. Olawale Moronkola, declared the event open.
Moronkola noted that the programme falls within the recent plans it has developed to implement further its core mandate of training and retraining of coaches.
He stated that the training will be of immense benefit to the coaches ahead of the start of the 2023-24 NNL season.
“The NIS is determined to upscale the technical expertise of Nigeria National League coaches, hence the partnership with NNL,” he said in his opening speech.
“I urge the participants to be focused, determined and committed to make use of this unique opportunity. The fact that you’re here is a confirmation of your collective desire to join us to achieve this vision.”
At the end of the refresher course, NIS certificates will be issued to the participants.
