AFC signs MOU for online youth coaching tool

The Asian Football Confederation signed a four-year Memorandum of Understanding with Secret to Sports (S2S), developers of an internet-based tool that will support the AFC's grassroots and youth coaching activities. "This MOU will help fulfil the AFC's vision of providing all young girls and boys with equal opportunities to develop their skills in sports, independent of social, cultural and geographical situations," said AFC General Secretary Paul Mony Samuel.

The S2S online tool supports the quality and quantity of coaching and training youth and grassroots football and includes a program sequence creating digital diagrams known as "digital diagram software" (DDS). S2S has also agreed to prepare youth and grassroots plans using functions of the online coaching tool, based on inputs from the AFC and member associations, AFCMedia reported.
