In a statement released on Sunday, LeFA Technical Director, Leslie Notsi said the CAF coaching course manuals which were developed by LeFA’s Coaching Instructors, Motebang Makhetha and the late Mpho Leoisa will be put in use as soon as possible.
Both Makhetha and Leoisa were trained by Lefa and FIFA.
Notsi said LeFA through its Coach Education Officer, Lehlohonolo Thotanyana, tasked the two instructors to compile the two manuals.
“The manuals were developed in line with CAF's directive that each Member Association should develop customised manuals for the CAF certified coaching courses,” he noted.
LeFA Media Officer, Mikia Kalati told Metro that the new manuals bring the total of localised coaching course manuals to three after the LeFA’s CAF D coaching course manual which was developed by Thotanyana earlier this year.
In January 2009, CAF launched the CAF Coaching Licensing System which seeks to set and promote benchmarks regarding coaching on the continent and help recognise African coaches for their knowledge and experience.

The CAF Coaching Licensing System serves as a platform to evaluate coaches and inject more professionalism into the art of coaching.
It is among others aimed at reaching homogeneous and high professional standards with the programme’s key objectives being to ensure that each African coach or any coach operating in Africa possesses the relevant license to perform his or her duties.
