Rich submissions, confessions, debates, ideas, proposals and fresh suggestions were made during the 2023 Annual General Assembly (AGM) for the Uganda Football Coaches Association (UFCA).

The power of unity is key in forging constructive blocks, ideas and institutions.

United forces have time immemorial lobbied and agitated for successful projects therein.

It is upon this firm background that football coaches in the country through the Uganda Football Coaches’ Association (UFCA) have at all times fronted their deeds through their unifying body.

From the rich submissions, confessions, proposals, debates, ideas and fresh suggestions conveyed during the recently held Annual General Assembly (AGM) at Kenedia Hotel in the Kampala city slum of Katwe, one could straight away depict the future is fruitful and ripe.

Livingstone Kyambadde, the chairperson of Uganda Football Coaches Association summarized his submission with the positive deeds coaches ought to emulate as they execute their work.

As coaches, we had a successful Annual General Meeting. The coaches have to have trust in their work by doing things in one act. They should also note that their own families are very important. They have to build a strong social network, have the right mentors and the right ethics.

Mujib Kasule, a celebrated coaching instructor with Confederation of African Football (CAF) reminded the coaches of their integral objectives and roles.

Kasule called for a complete overhaul of the system with total re-organization of their house.

For us as coaches to do the right things, we need the mind re-set now with re-organization. We need to follow the rules and regulations. Local players are developed by local coaches. We need to rethink the technical direction that starts with the coaches’ association.
