Crown host D-licence coaching course

Phnom Penh Crown held a D-licence coaching course on Friday at its RSN Stadium field in Tuol Kork district, which was attended by 46 individuals, including three females, from associations and clubs across the Kingdom.

Crown coach Sam Schweingruber, who initiated and conducted the ten-day course, stressed the importance of helping the development of football through focusing on the next generation.

According to the coach, the emphasis of the course was on encouraging young coaches to learn standard training methods while also obtaining creative inspiration from each other.

Football Federation of Cambodia general secretary Kul Sophana told the Post on Friday: “If all the clubs follow what Crown did today, we’ll have lots of chances to find good football players, which is the hope of Cambodian football.”
