Manama: Bahrain’s first AFC Beach Soccer Level 1 Coaching Certificate Course concluded in the capital city of Manama recently having attracted 15 participants.

The historic course has paved the way for the creation of more certified coaches in the fast developing game in the West Asian country.

Assistant General Secretary of the Bahrain Football Association Ibrahim Al Buainain said: “The Bahrain Football Association, as part of its overall development strategy, started the efforts on this specialised programme in 2014 as beach soccer is currently experiencing rapid growth over the past few years in all parts of Asia.

“This pilot programme opened a new chapter in beach soccer and paved the way towards more success in the near future. Beach soccer is an important element of football and I hope that all the participants in this course have worked hard and done their best to achieve the maximum results at the end of the programme.”

AFC Beach Soccer Coaching Instructor Mr. Ling Luhui delivered the six-day course.
