LESOTHO Football Association (LeFA) through its Technical Director's office headed by Leslie Notsi is currently holding a series of coaching and refereeing clinics throughout the country in a bid to increase the pool of local match officials and coaches.

LeFA Media Officer Mikia Kalati said the clinics are introductory as they target people from the grassroots where the District Football Associations (DIFAs) should apply in order to qualify for such clinics.
He said after being trained by facilitators drawn from the structures within the association, the applicants will be put on LeFA data base in order to prepare them for further training like basics for the match officials or D licences for the coaches.
Kalati said this will augur well for the up and coming coaches and match officials for the development of soccer in the country, adding that LeFA finances the trainings.

Each DIFA office, he said identifies possible trainees within their jurisdiction and that the office of the Technical Director provides the facilitators and training material like soccer balls, bibs and cones which are used during training sessions.
