KNVB WORLD COACHES PROGRAMME JOHANNESBURG

Johannesburg, 1 April 2022

This week, we hosted female football coaches from the JVW Football Club for the KNVB World Coaches Programme. The KNVB World Coaches Program is a renowned coaching program that reaches a vast majority of countries and assists them in equipping their coaches with the best possible knowledge for them to utilize within Football and Life Skills programs.

The programme was conducted by our long term partner KNVB, and coach Roger Schouwenaar led the programme. The Dutch football education system is by far one of the best in the world, and we have together educated thousands of young aspiring coaches across South Africa. For the closing ceremony, we were joined by Janine van Wyk and Fran Hilton-Smith two of the most recognisable and inspiring ladies in woman’s football on the African continent.

Forwardzone has been a proud partner in the program since 2010. As a company, we are deeply committed to the development of women in sport and this is another example of Forwardzone’s dedication to helping build sporting leaders of the future.
