TTFA Drives Grassroots Football Development
In 2016, the TTFA conducted several Grassroots clinics spearheaded by technical director Muhammad Isa and his cadre of coaches at various communities throughout the country. The initiative was done through a partnership with the Scotiabank Foundation.
The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) continues to operate a series of Grassroots development courses for children and coaches at several points across the country. Sessions were being catered for children under 8, under 11 and under 13.
The first session took place in Central at the Hugo Francis Recreational Ground, Chaguanas Each day our coaches visited different venues to conduct sessions which entailed an introduction to the game, the philosophy of grassroots, basic techniques, example exercises and small-sided games.
“Being involved in grassroots football is a very rewarding experience. And improving our young players technically is one challenge, but contributing to a youngster’s personal development is also a fundamental goal and that is among the major objectives of the association. “Grassroots football’s potential role as an educational, social vehicle cannot be underestimated. We believe it needs to be promoted for the benefit of young people, society and the game itself,” states the TTFA.
