Members of the visiting team

A cadre of local coaches and young players will get the opportunity to be coached and evaluated by coaches from two European clubs, including a current coach from the world famous Manchester United Academy.

The Dominican players and coaches will get the opportunity to participate in a 2-day football session starting on July 24th and 25that the Dublanc playing field (4:30pm) and Windsor Park Sports Stadium (9:00am) respectively.

The sessions during the weekend activity will include short, intense and impactful coaching sessions for the coaches, complimented by practical sessions including both players and coaches. The aim of the session is to provide Dominican coaches and players with rudimentary approaches to football coaching that will assist in developing youth players.

The players will also benefit from evaluations of their technical capacities, fitness levels, knowledge and attitude of the game and professionalism in football.

This activity builds upon previous visits of Gary St. Rose, from W Connection out of Trinidad and Tobago, most recently in 2015 and is a signal of a new impetus on the development of elite players at the youth level who can impact on the quality of local football as well as international representation. The facilitators for the camp are Louis Garvey from Manchester United of the English Premier League and Jacob Tind of Silkborg Football Club of the Denmark Premier League.

This course/session is a testimony of the new vision for development of football and sport within the Commonwealth of Dominica and is as a result of rigorous planning from the Way Forward Team as well as corporate and private sector support from companies and other entities across Dominica, including the Dublanc Village Council, the Windsor Park Sports Stadium, the Delganis Sports Zone, Sign Man, Discover Dominica Authority and Castle Comfort Lodge.

The Way Forward team is comprised of numerous individuals (see table below) who will be presenting themselves for the Dominica Football Association’s elections during the Annual General Meeting on August 1st, 2015.

    A Very good initiative by the Organisers, I hope that the young footballers take full advantage of this opportunity and give a full hundred during the training. The game’s development is inevitable on the island.
    Oneness and Guidance!

      Sheldon Casimir I wish I could like that comment 100 times my boy. Initiative by an opponent but u have seen beyond that and just see what this means for our local football unlike a certain self proclaimed journalist clown Can-Lie.

    You are right Carlisle this straight up politics. This is an early sing of bribery, one week before elections ur brining coaches from man united and other big countries here.If that’s how u all are planning on winning elections you all are showing that u all r no different from Jeffery web, jack warner and the rest.

    • wow
      July 22, 2015

      Lack of education is a hell of a thing. If u listened to off the field on
      Wednesday June 17th you would have heard the team mention that
      this event is in the makig for July whether they won de elections or not.
      All that was said before the date of elections were changed so please educate
      yourself before making such statements.

      Carlisle Jno Baptiste …. really?
      WAW. WHAT A BOLD STATEMENT YOUR MAKING! are you being paid or you working like a horse for free?
      I would like you to tell me (us) what part of this course/session is utter rubbish??? Explain your Bold statement. seems you know the team well… why does everything have to be political? can’t it have a few people in the bunch that just loves the sport and want it to go places???? cut your crap!
      you people just like to bash things once is not form allu bunch it comes out.
      which ever team did it. hearts off to them because it is a good exposure for our young players; giving them a chance on reaching somewhere through the sport.

      So Carlisle if that’s really you are you saying that creating opportunities for players is utter rubbish? Every other Caribbean island can call names of their locals that have gone out and play professional football and in Dominica when the opportunity is created some people want to cry it down. Get off your high horse man

      one question is michael joseph the ousted questionable president of the Dominica Amateur Basketball Association (DABA)? If this is true it does not augurs well for the way forward team.

        NO NO. wrong candidate. Michael Joseph Jr. is all about Football!!! no room for basketball.

      • happy for the youth
        July 22, 2015

        Your thinking of the wrong person. Michael Joseph Jr aka Bigjoe is a football coach from Bath Estate. This man I know for sure is all about football and wanting to see the sport go far. These are the kind of ppl we need running our football. I know things will happen once bigjoe is there.

        Ignorance and stupidity

  7. not looking
    July 22, 2015

    The team looks incomplete without a Treasurer, or are they supporting the current Treasurer. Otherwise looks like a strong football knowledge team.
