Brief report on 13th coaches‘ congress at Zwolle/Netherlands on 15th May 2015
VVON and CBV, the two Dutch coaches‘ associations, jointly carried out the 13th congress for UEFA ‘A’ and ‘Pro Licence’ coaches at Zwolle. The course was attended by more than 1,400 coaches.
As usual, it was a very high-level congress. At the PEC Zwolle football ground, PSV Eindhoven (Under-17) and Feyernoord Rotterdam (Under-13) gave a convincing show of interesting practice units (see programme enclosed).
This was followed by the presentation of the traditional, and by now legendary, ‘Rinus Michels Awards’ for the best coaches in professional and amateur football. Philip Cocu and Adrie Poldervaart won the awards for best professional and amateur coach respectively. Leo Beenhakker presented Guus Hiddink with an award for lifetime achievement.
AEFCA was represented by its General Secretary and President of USFT, Philip J. Müller, as well as its Vice-President Jacques Müller.
