Coaches put knowledge to best use
BY ROMULUS HUTA
COACHES who took part in last month’s OFC C-License Coaching Course in Honiara will put knowledge learnt to best use when the under-16 pre-season soccer tournament kicks off in Saturday.
The tournament is organised by Solomon Islands Football Federation (SIFF) as part of the OFC C-License Coaching Course.
After the one-week workshop last month, they initially agreed to hold a seven-a-side competition. However, it all changed to 11-a-side when the announcement was made this week.
In the meantime, the fixtures for the competition were drawn during a technical meeting held mid-week at SIFF Academy Conference Room.
To be coordinated by Fujiyama Shimpei and Stanley Waita, all matches are to be played at SIFF Academy Pitch.
Shimpei told SunSPORTS that preparation is going on well and they are pleased to receive a good turn from coaches who took part in the C-License coaching programme.
Meanwhile, total of 12 teams have registered to take part and they are drawn into two pools – Group A and B.
Teams registered to compete include Laugu (two teams), Marist (two teams), Solomon Sheet Steel (two teams), Rio Fire FC, Urban BC Lions, Solomon Warriors, Kukum Bullets, KOSSA FC and Malaita Kingz.
See Pool Draws below:
Laugu United B, Marist Fire, Solomon Sheet Steel B, Rio Fire FC, Urban BC Lions and Solomon Warriors FC
