ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The new BVI Football Association (BVIFA) Technical Director, Marcos Falopa, has been hard at work both on and off the field and has established a new BVIFA Coaching Course which he will hold beginning April 26, 2017.

In his short time with the Association, Falopa, who hails from Brazil, has been planning Coaching Events and training the U15 Boys team.

Falopa was first exposed to the young boys as part of the delegation that went to Puerto Rico for the GPS Tournament back in January and has since been hard at work with them in preparation for tournaments in St Maarten and the CONCACAF U15 Championship to be held in Florida.

Falopa believes “that it is important to develop and have success from the Grassroots levels up to senior teams,” and hopes to get the Boys to play the ball on the ground like all top teams.

“The Boys need to have better exposure in all aspects of the game from technical fundamentals to tactical awareness, but also we need to get the Coaches better too.”

Falopa, has also visited many Schools to hold sessions, getting around in a car provided in a joint deal between the BVIFA and VI Motors of Duffs Bottom and has also spoken to many of the Coaches involved in after school, club and schools coaching.

Following a well-attended Grassroots Coaching Seminar, which is the first step in the BVIFA’s new Coaching Programme, Falopa will be hosting stage 2 at the end of April, which is a 3-day Course featuring both theory and practical.

Falopa began Coaching in 1972 and has conducted Courses for CONCACAF all over the World and has even published a Book, The Brazilian Way to Play Soccer.

The course begins April 26, 2017 and will be run on consecutive Wednesday’s until May 10, 2017 from 4:30 PM until 6:30 PM.

Prospective Coaches can contact the BVIFA Office on 494 5655 for more information and to enroll.

    I love FIFA. Give them all the money and resources they ask for to meet FIFA agenda and goals... When they can't account for their spending lock them all up.
