President of Nigeria Taekwondo Federation (NTF), Margaret Binga has commended the World Taekwondo body for approving a WT Coach Certification Course Level 1 for Nigeria.
The WT Coach Certification Course Level 1 is scheduled for December 15 and 16, 2019 in Abuja, FCT.
Binga has thanked the World body for the program, adding that it would have cost a fortune to send the coaches to other countries to get the knowledge.
“We really thank the World Taekwondo body for approving the program in Nigeria. The World Taekwondo body is really doing a lot to ensure development spreads across the continent.”
“It will cost a fortune to send our coaches to other countries to get this knowledge. Attracting this program makes it very affordable for our coaches. We even pushed and got a 50% discount in registration fees to reduce the financial burden so that all our coaches, at the elite and grassroots level, can participate.”
“From 2021, this certification is required for any coach to participate in another World Taekwondo event. We initially wanted to organize a national coaching workshop during the Korean Ambassador Cup in October. But my technical department successfully argued that we should upgrade to the World taekwondo Coaching certification to triple the benefits to our coaches and Taekwondo community.”
This is the first English version of the course to take place in Africa and a minimum of 50 coaches are expected to participate in the event as this a huge opportunity ahead of the Olympic year of 2020.
