Officials of English Premiership side, West Ham United, have held a day’s workshop for Ghanaian coaches to impart high-level football expertise to participants.

During the workshop, local coaches were enlightened on the modern coaching methods, injury prevention, effective communication with players and how to plan training schedules before and during league matches.

West Ham United’s Head of medical and sports science, Steijn Vanderbrouke, and first team fitness Coach, Tom Taylor, took the local coaches through modern trends in coaching.

Coach Enos Kwame Adipah, who guided Wa All Stars to clinch their first Premier League title this season, admitted the workshop was beneficial. We have learnt a lot from this workshop. This enhances the nutrition of the players and performance on the field and fitness. There are a whole lot in coaching which I think we have to know.

“If we have such workshops, it will help us. It helps in refreshing our memory and positively affects us. This will help to push the club owners to know modern trends in football. We will need more of this to enlighten our performance and our brain”, he said.

The workshop was facilitated by Betway, an online sports betting company and shirt sponsor of West Ham, part of Betway’s stakeholder engagements in Ghana.
