Basic & Advanced Course in Dubai

Last week Raymond Verheijen was in Dubai at Al Nasr SC for the Basic and Advanced Course in Football Periodisation. In the three days at Al Nasr SC more than 20 Football Coaches were educated about how to improve their coaching skills.

The attending coaches were pulled out of their comfort zone in order to learn new ways of coaching football. This was possible due to the efforts of WFA Middle-East and Al Nasr SC.
