Local football coach and former Young Socceroo Captain, Kurt Reynolds, is currently progressing his coaching knowledge and qualifications at the AIS in Canberra.
Commencing this Tuesday Reynolds is attending the four day Football Conditioning course under the tutelage of Dutch expert, Raymond Verheijen, which will be followed by four further days towards completing the AFC/FFA A Advanced Licence. A group of almost 100 coaches from across the countries and overseas are in attendance including A-League and National team coaches, along with the state Technical Directors.
These courses follows Part 1 of the A advanced Course in June 2012 and numerous distant learning projects over the last 12 months.
Completion of these course will place Reynolds amongst the highest qualified coaches in Australia. Importantly it builds upon the coaching knowledge within Tasmania.
"The initial three days have been long and intense as expected. However, the forum is brilliant with enormous football learning's". said Reynolds.
" Working with and networking with such expert coaches, former Socceroos and peers is a great opportunity which I value and appreciate." he added.
On return to Launceston Reynolds will continue to work with Launceston City Devils Development Squad programs which will be expanded from next month.
