FFB Women’s Director Iris Centeno is in Valencia, Spain, under FIFA Education Scholarship pursuing UEFA “C” License coaching course under a FIFA Education Scholarship.
The Football Federation of Belize (FFB) said it received the scholarship from FIFA’s Women’s Development Programme and awarded it to Centeno.
“The course provides coaches with a systematic way to improve their knowledge and skills in the theoretical and practical aspects of coaching,” said the FFB.
“Additionally, the programme includes 60 theoretical hours in the classroom and 150 practical teaching hours with a professional club. Apart from football contents, the coaches will receive intensive education in Anatomy, Physiology, Sports Psychology, Sport Pedagogy, and Sport Management/Administration and Research.”
The FFB said Centeno is the first and only woman in Belize who currently holds a CONCACAF “C” Coaching License. She also has an FFB “D” License and a number of FIFA coaching certificates.
Apart from being the Women’s Director at the FFB, Centeno is also the Head Coach of the U-17 Women’s National Football Team and Assistant coach of the U-20 Women’s National Football Team.
