Mr. Head of Video Analysis and Scouting, Edward Gyamfi Achempong will lead the training with assistance and directives from Director of Coaching Education Prof. Joseph Kwame Mintah and Administrative Manager Maxwell Caesar Kemeh.
Recording and analysing team or player’s performance allows teams to catch the small details & techniques that are often missed when watching a player live. Thus, video analysis enables football clubs to take a critical look at their performance in order to improve skills and prevent injury among other benefits.
This course is part of the overall strategy of the Technical Directorate to improve the Ghanaian game.
