Basseterre, St. Kitts- “Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity”. John F. Kennedy left this quote with us to remind us that our physical well-being is a great deciding factor in our intellectual capabilities. We, the SKNFA are in full agreement and encourage physical fitness daily.
During the past week the SKNFA conducted a FIFA Fitness Course instructed by Frank Nuttall from Scotland. The course took place from 8th to 12th October where 25 participants from clubs and SKNFA national program were involved.The course began with theory sessions (morning) at the football house and followed with practical sessions (afternoon) at Newtown playing field. In speaking with Vernon Springer instructor Nuttall explained that players must improve not only football fitness but overall performance. Nutall was very specific in his approach to fitness and urged coaches to do so as well.
Below is an interview conducted by Winn Fm with instructor Nuttall:
THe SKNFA wishes to thank Mr. Nutal and FIFA for the assistance rendered to us. We greatly appreciate it.
