How To Become A Football Coach In Nigeria And Abroad! by 080football(m): 5:11pm On Jun 17, 2015
Have you ever wondered what it takes to become a football coach, or do you have a friend or relative that is so keen on being the next Murinho, Wenger, Ancellotti, Simeone, LVG or Ferguson? You are welcome to 080FOOTBALL-HOW-TO-BE segment. We want to show you how easy it is and what to do to become a football coach in Nigeria and abroad.

WHO IS QUALIFIED?

Everybody is eligible as long as you are at least 16years old with a first leaving certificate or its equivalent (minimum qualification). Those with visual impairments may not be qualified because football is a visual game.

HOW TO BEGIN

You are expected to go to the State secretariat closest to you to get relevant information like the application fees and the banks to apply to. You will pay a nonrefundable amount to the account given to you. If the application is successful, you will start your chosen program at the Lagos Campus of the National Sports Institute.

PROGRAMS:

BASIC PROGRAM

The Basic program is for those without coaching experience. You will spend the first two months in the classroom, before undertaking a compulsory IT (One Month) program with a club of your choice. The (Basic) program is expected to last for 3 months.

DIPLOMA PROGRAM

The diploma program is for those with the required coaching experience or those with the Basic certificate. You are expected to spend one year in the classroom and another five months in a club for relevant and practical coaching experience. You will write an exam at the end of this program, if you are successful, you are qualified to coach some small amateur clubs in Nigeria and many other African countries.

HIGHER DIPLOMA PROGRAM

The higher diploma program is for those with Diploma certificate from National Institute of Sports or its equivalent from another country. The program will last for one year in Nigeria and you will be attached to a club from time to time.

NOTE: The National Institute of Sports (NIS) also runs a twin program with a Sports Institute in Holland. The Diploma graduates in Nigeria can run a Higher Diploma program for just one month if they choose to travel to Holland for the course.

You can coach any club in Nigeria with a Higher Diploma Certificate from the National Institute of Sports. But you can’t coach clubs like Chelsea, Real Madrid or any other Champions League club. You need to apply for a LEVEL THREE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM in some big European countries like England, Spain, France or Italy. The duration depends on the country/Federation as well as institution. Nonetheless, their general program includes the following;

Theory

The learning and coaching process (pt2)

Match and player analysis

Team organization: Strategies and tactics

Psychological factors

Football fitness (pt2)

Injury identification

Aspects of first aid

Drug awareness and education

Youngsters in football – child

Development (part two – including working with teenagers)

Preparing, planning and evaluating coaching sessions in conjunction with competitive match programs

Attitudes and ethics

Practical

Development of possession

Movement to create space

Counter-attacking play

Play in the attacking third

Regaining possession

Defending in the thirds of the field

Goalkeeping

Assessment

Those who want to completely study abroad will start from Level One till they get to level Three. They are expected to take a written examination, which includes a multiple choice question in: Football fitness, injury identification and recognition, aspects of first aid and nutrition.

Some Federations may also require an oral Interview regarding recorded coaching and other practical coaching sessions. So be prepared! Goodluck!!!
