Sports Training and Development Section in co-operation with the Coaching Association of Canada.
In his visit to the section premises in Juffair, Askar met the participants in the program, which continued until September 12, and saw more than 1,600 coaches graduated since its inception in 1998.
Askar stressed the importance of adopting such programs which contribute to developing the skills and abilities of the national coaches, who are among the main pillars of the sports system.
Askar also noted the keenness of the Bahrain Olympic Committee to attract similar programs and new training courses to link sports with science, which would help in the development of sports movement.
The program, meanwhile, resumed with 10 instructors taking part. They are Nabeel Taha, Mahmood Yateem, Ali Al Anzoor, Ahmed Hafed, Mahmood Fakhro, Ruqaya Al Ghasra, Ali Hussain, Jaffer Ebrahim, Mohsin Al Ghanem and Dr Hussain Jaffer.
They will be qualified to conduct programs for national coaches from different sports clubs and associations, as well as the Education Ministry.
It’s worth noting that the Bahrain Olympic Committee had signed an agreement with the Coaching Association of Canada to prepare and qualify national coaches for 10 years.
