Thabo Senong pays a visit to SAB League Skills Camp

 South African U20 head coach took a break from his AFCON U20 preparations to pay a visit to the ongoing SAB League Skills Camp currently happening at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria.  The 34-year-old coach holds the SAB League dear to his heart having started his coaching career there with Pimville Youngsters before steadily working his way up the ranks.  Day five of the coaching course will see the coaches receiving a CAF C License course at the end of the 10-day course currently run under the auspices of highly qualified CAF and SAFA instructors.  Senong was proud to share his knowledge and passion with the aspirant coaches who vary between the ages of 26 and 40, urging them to maintain a positive attitude amidst the challenges facing them at development level.  ”As a former SAB League coach myself, I am aware of the challenges that face coaches at development level.  This is why such a programme by SAB is truly remarkable and needs to be applauded.  We need more of these programmes to ensure that coaches at amateur level are highly skilled in order to effectively develop our young talent” said Senong.  After graduating from the SAB League, Senong became the youngest coach to qualify for SAFA’s first level 3 Pro License course back in 2011.
