ZIFA rolls out coaching philosophy consultative meetings



MASVINGO – The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) is rolling out consultative meetings for the formulation of a national coaching philosophy.
A coaching philosophy is a set of beliefs and principles that guide one’s coaching decisions and therefore dictates how you want to coach a team. Without a clear philosophy, it can be difficult to make decisions.
This was confirmed by a communiqué addressed to all coaches signed by ZIFA technical director, Jethro Hunidzarira dated May 28, 2024.
The consultation follows the realization that there is no national coaching philosophy.
The coaching philosophy is a requirement for Confederation of Africa (CAF) licence modules. The consultative meetings are running from June 3- 7, 2024, and are targeting all coaches, coach educators, strength and conditioning coaches and teachers with coaching certificates.
The Masvingo consultative meeting is slated for June 6 at 9 am at the Civic Centre.
“The consultative meetings held by the Technical Director revealed that Zimbabwe has no coaching philosophy. Based on that assumption, it is imperative to conduct follow up consultative meetings on the national coaching philosophy to feed on the CAF modules. This will proffer ownership to stakeholders… Focus groups will be used to collect information on the proposed Zimbabwean Coaching Philosophy…,” reads part of the communiqué.
The first meetings will be held at Chaplin High School in Gweru on June 3, at 9 am and in Bulawayo at YWC at 3pm. The next meeting will be held at Little Theatre, Hwange on the next day at 9am.
Gwanda consultative meeting will held on June 5, at 9 am at the SRC boardroom. Mandava Stadium will host Zvishavane’s meeting on the same day at 3 pm. The last consultative meeting is slated for Sakubva Stadium, Mutare at 9 am on June 7.
