Jamaica Excel Sports Management (JAESM) in collaboration with the Montego Bay United FC, will be hosting a football coaching and management seminar under the theme, 'Improving the Coach to Improve the Player' directed by UK-based Bryan Bull.

This exclusive development opportunity will be held today through to Saturday at WesPow Park in Montego Bay, St James.

Participants will be exposed to observe, study and review high performance coaching and management techniques with Bryan Bull, academy manager at the Gillingham Football Club in the UK.

This Improve the Coach to Improve the Player Programme aims to develop coaches working at the school or club level. It will equip participants to transform players, clubs and, by extension, communities to understand and apply the elements needed to develop coaches to professional standards as improving the quality of coaching will influence how players play the game.

JAESM is seeking to select and invite senior club players and/or coaches who wish to pursue a coaching career or international coaching qualifications (The Youth Module 1, 2, 3, The FA Level 2 or UEFA 'B'). Applicants should have already achieved one of the following — a JFF-qualified Level 2 certificate, G C Foster qualification, or qualification from an equivalent learning institution or experience with an established club or academy.

Participants will be taught how to identify talent, develop players, lead clubs into professional football club philosophies, and instruct on playing style and culture.

This is a one-year programme which is structured to assess and complement the needs of the participant. It offers small cohorts and a flexible, individualised, development programme. The teaching method encourages learning and cultural exchange to obtain international coaching and management experience with professional clubs.

The course offers 20 hours of initial instructor-led training, both on and off the field. It offers eight hours post- seminar mentoring and evaluation via webinars at quarterly periods of the year.

Content includes the journey of self- discovery in understanding the environment of the high-performance coaching in order to inform appropriate development, and pioneering the emerging profession of high-performance coaching, as well as coaching programmes and structures and learning to design programmes which will result in positive outcomes for players.

Participants will be guided through the coaching pathway as JAESM supports coaching career aspirants to become elite.

JAESM was incorporated in Jamaica last October, specialising in the area of player and coach management, technical development, sports marketing and management, coach education, facilities development and creating partnerships.
