Thanks to the great work carried out jointly by the Panamanian Football Federation (FEPAFUT) and MBP School of Coaches, almost 2000 coaches have been trained and are being trained through the new licensing structure. This structure has been based on putting the development of Panamanian players at the center of the training proposal, offering coaches tools to customize their sessions and training content to the stages of each player and each team.
For this reason, we have renewed our agreement until the end of 2025, to ensure and continue with a high-quality academic and training proposal for coaches.
“We were clear that if we wanted to improve the training of young male and female players, we had to start by improving the training of coaches. We are convinced that with this new structure, in the short, medium, and long term, we will begin to see positive results from this new stage of training trainers,” commented Claudio Polo, Development Manager of FEPAFUT.
On the other hand, Jaime Fortuño, co-founder of MBP School of Coaches, said, “We are very grateful that FEPAFUT gave us the opportunity, just like Mexico, Peru, India, and other countries and states have done, to accompany them in the training of their coaches through continuous development and in conjunction with FEPAFUT, providing educational materials (books, slides, videos, and photos…) with international examples of good practices. We also want to congratulate the board members and executives of FEPAFUT because the work they are doing is spectacular. Today, they are already seeing great results, but thanks to their hard work, we will surely see many more.”
