THE National Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (NFABD) has called participants who have just completed the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Goalkeeping Level 1 Coaching Course to share their knowledge to their respective teams or at the school level and association as well as to identify and produce goalkeepers of high calibre.

NFABD recognise the dearth of goalkeepers in clubs adding that it is possible that players are only voluntarily filling in the positions.

“Touching on the course, I find it is timely the Football Development Department (FDD) organised courses such as this because we are aware that there is a shortage of goalkeeping coaches”, said Haji Meramit bin Haji Damit, Executive Committee member of NFABD during the closing ceremony at NFABD House yesterday.

Haji Meramit added that there is the urgency to meet current needs of having goalkeeping coaches who obtained a coaching certificate which is recognised both regionally and internationally.

“Therefore, I urged the participants who have completed the course not only to be satisfied with this course but also to be as determined with similar courses which is at an even more advanced stage in the regional level let alone in the international level”, he added.

A total of 12 selected goalkeeping coaches including one from Singapore completed the course which encompassed subjects and topics of basic goalkeeping training, warming up, goal attempts, 1v1s, dealing with deep passes, crosses, build up and game performance analysis.

Led by AFC instructor Haroon Al Bartamani from Oman, the course integrated topics on sports medicine and mental preparation as to better equip the participants.

The course also included evaluations from a practical assessment and a theory exam.

Also present at the ceremony were Dayem Haji Ali, Competition Director of NFABD; Stephen Ng, NFABD Senior Staff Coach; executive committee members of NFABD and NFABD staff.
