FUFA in collaboration with the African football governing body (CAF) has organized a match assessor’s refresher course at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.
According to Fufa, fifty-eight participants are taking part in the three days course running from Monday 18th to Wednesday 20th March 2019.
CAF instructor and Rwandese retired FIFA Assistant referee, also a member of the CAF Referees committee and IFAB, Celestine Ntagungira is taking charge of the course.
“I thank CAF and the leadership of FUFA for organising such a course which is important because Assessors play a big role in refereeing by improving the quality of the referees, giving feedback to the committee and the referees.” Celestine Ntagungira told the fufa media.
“Assessors are also instructors who must be in line with the trend of football when they get refresher courses to widen their knowledge which they later pass on to the referees. We need to have uniformity in the assessment world over that why CAF and FIFA encourage such refresher courses.” He added
The Uganda Football Referees Association chairman Ronnie Kalema said, “The role of an assessor is to guide the referees into proper performance in the field of play. They also help the Federation scout young referees from the eight regions. The assessors will be subjected to three exams to help asses them too on what they have been taught during the course.”
The course is determined to improve on the refereeing standards in the country.
Two of the 58 assessors are from beach soccer.
