playing the Arsenal way-Arsenal coaches run session in Ethiopia

Arsenal Soccer Schools coaches traveled to Ethiopia this week to conduct a two-day training program with thirty of the top Ethiopian Premier League coaches.

Neil Harvey and Patrick Gavagham led the sessions

The training focused on four key areas:

  1. Psychological
  2. Physical
  3. Social
  4. Technical/tactical.

After the training Neil Harvey, Arsenal Soccer Schools coach said: “It has been great to work so closely with some of Ethiopia’s top Premier League coaches and share Arsenal’s coaching philosophy with them. This two day programme will hopefully help provide the coaches with key skills that can be applied to both grassroots and elite level football here in Ethiopia.”

Devlin Hainsworth, Dashen Chief Executive Officer also said:

”This two day session was a real success. It’s very exciting, just two months into the partnership with Arsenal, to have coaches from the club actively participating in a session in Ethiopia. This is the first of many training programmes to come and we hope to build on this going forward to develop the grassroots football structure in Ethiopia.”
