Tanzania: Clubs, Associations Told to Employ Local Coaches

THE government has challenged sports associations and local clubs to trust and employ local coaches especially those graduating from Malya Sports College in Mwanza.

Deputy Minister for Information, Youth, Culture and Sports, Amos Makalla told Parliamentary Standing Committee for Community Development that visited the college yesterday, the college is producing quality coaches.

"Instead of relying too much on foreign coaches, who are highly paid, its time now we re-think our approach and put trust in local coaches," he said. He said the government will continue to improve infrastructure at the college to cater for more students.

Giving his report to the committee, Malya Sports College Principal, Allex Allen expressed his intention to upgrade the College for it to offer Bachelor and Master Degrees in a bid to increase the number of sports administrators in the country. Currently the college offers studies up to Diploma level.
