Basseterre, St. Kitts- Mr. Gregory Engelbrecht, FIFA Senior Officer in the Development Office for the Americas visited St. Kitts on the brink of the end of our first youth coaching coarse on Friday 6 September 2013. Mr. Engelbrecht is responsible for the overseeing of all the SKNFA’s development programmes including FAP, training courses, Gold Projects etc. This marks his first visit to the Federation and as such it is more of a familiarization visit where he would want to meet with executive members of the FA to discuss our needs and get a feel of the local football environment.
In recent years FIFA’s Development Offices has approved a considerable amount of development programmes for St. Kitts-Nevis, the visit allows Engelbrecht the opportunity to gain first hand knowledge about how these programmes are working and have benefited St.Kitts-Nevis. While on island, Engelbrecht will observe several aspects of the FA, including, but not limited to:
FIFA Youth Coaching Course
SKNFA Executives & Youth Course Instructors
Goal Project 2 Site
Warner Park Cricket & Football Stadiums
Observe Youth Football Festival (at Silver Jubilee Stadium)
The SKNFa wishes to welcome Mr. Gregory Engelbrecht to St. Kitts-Nevis.
