With the ''Ministry of Sport'' Malaysia
IPSO were back in Malaysia working within their youth development program.
We went over for a full week of education in scouting & analysis looking to train the heads of each province in Malaysia under the umbrella of the Ministry of Sport.
We delivered a comprehensive five-day education program aimed at enhancing the skills and knowledge of football coaches in the country. The program consisted of three courses covering Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 coaching certifications, totaling an immersive 40 hours of intensive education of the highest quality. We also delivered a seminar for young players which also went down very well as we educated them in what we do do and how scouts look at young players in their development.
The initiative marks a significant milestone for IPSO, the FAM and the Ministry of Sport, demonstrating their commitment to elevating the standards of coaching in Malaysia and paving the way for a brighter future in Malaysian football. The partnership sought to empower local coaches with cutting-edge scouting/analysis procedure to use in their coaching techniques, strategies, and methodologies that are aligned with international best practices.
Participants eagerly seized the opportunity to gain insights from IPSO’s expert instructors, who shared real-life experiences and case studies from their careers in football. The open exchange of ideas and knowledge not only enriched the learning experience but also encouraged a sense of solidarity among the coaches in attendance.
As the five-day education program ended, the enthusiasm among the Malaysian coaches was plain to see. Armed with new knowledge and improved scouting and analysis skills, they left eager to make a positive impact on the football landscape in Malaysia.
We also had some fun while we were there playing in a charity match as we cemented our relationship. Colin Chambers our education director took part in the game.
