The management of the Football Coaches Association of Africa Nations (FCAAN), the largest African coaching education body, has reiterated its commitment towards providing a professional environment for all coaches, players, staffs, and educators by adopting strict policies and procedures in order to provide health and safety standards in the era of COVID-19.
According to FCAAN Founder and President Dr. Terry Babatunde Eguaoje, this protocol is needed in order to ensure that coaches, our staffs and educators are adequately protected.
He said this was created after careful consideration of best global practices as well as those of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development.
FCAAN is set to conduct a year-round coaching education program in Nigeria after last year’s inactivities due to the ravaging Coronavirus.
Details of the Return to Education COVID-19 Protocols can be found on FCAAN website: www.fcaan.org under Breaking News.
Dr. Terry Babatunde Eguaoje, an American professor and Technical Director of Coaching in America who was also recently appointed by the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) as Consultant for Coaching and Development, said these are necessary steps to help protect against the spread of the virus among coaches, players and educators.
