Uganda Youth Football Association (UYFA) in co-ordination with Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has organized Beginners and FUFA D Coaching Courses in Kabale District, Kigezi Sub Region.

UYFA General Secretary, Shafic Kigongo highlighted as to why the Association is putting more emphasis on capacity building.
“FUFA introduced the New Academy Regulations. There were prerequisites as standards for all licensed academies to operate. Among those, FUFA prioritized 5 areas for issuance and classification of the FUFA Registered Football Academy.”
“In addition to the mandatory requirements, the licensees will be graded as evaluated depending on the following criteria:- 1- Governance, 2- Sport, 3- Personnel and administration, 4- Finance, 5- Infrastructure, facilities & Equipment. Among sport, the Academy will earn 5 points as per quality of coaches.”
According to Kigongo, having gone through a national Sensitization program, UYFA has further realized that there is a need to back this prerequisite.
For one to take part in FUFA D coaching course in Kabale, a non refundable fee of Two Hundred twenty Thousand Uganda Shillings only must be paid (220,000/=) while for Beginners coaching course one must have paid One Hundred Twenty Thousand Shillings only (120,000/=) payable to UYFA.
