Kenya take their first step in developing CP Football

Kenya take their first step in developing CP Football


In the very nice and friendly country of Kenya, IFCPF course instructors delivered a 2 day workshop for 17 participants about Coaching and Classification in CP Football. The participants included physiotherapists, coaches, administrators and members of the Kenya National Paralympic Committee. 


Also taking part were 10 motivated CP players. With the 10 CP players we could practice classification and training sessions. The course was held at a very nice accommodation “Kenya School Off Monetary Studies”.


The participants did a great, after two days they already recognised most of the classes on the field, and they also delivered good training sessions. We hope and think that Kenya have a good future in CP Football and a good foundation to hopefully soon take part in international tournaments.


The main goal for Kenya is to play in an international tournament in the next two years. Together they are making good plans of how to get there.


Altogether the course in Nairobi (Kenya) was a great success, they have a long way to go but everyone is very motivated to make the right steps.

Rene Jurrius and Paulo Cruz, as Technical Instructors, would like to thank the organisation (Kenia Paralympic Committee) for the very good days with a very fine organisation and a great accommodation.


Also we want to thank the very motivated participants and wish them all the luck and wisdom to start with CP Football in Kenya.
