Uganda Beach Soccer Association (UBSA) is conducting a four-day training for referees and coaches, focusing on modern techniques in the sport to enhance professionalism. The training taking place at the Njeru-based FUFA technical center, is designed to enhance the knowledge of stakeholders in the sport.

The training has drawn more than 30 participants from Uganda and other African countries with the aim of fostering the exchange of skills, knowledge, and synergies to promote the growth of beach soccer in Africa. The training sessions encompass both on-sand pitch and boardroom training, with the aim of equipping key stakeholders with a thorough understanding of the sport's global rules.

Darius Mugoye, the FUFA's 2nd vice-president, emphasizes that beach soccer is a continuously evolving sport. He also notes that although many individuals favor traditional football due to its established status, consistent investment in beach soccer, along with its worldwide growth, presents opportunities for career sportsmen to excel in this sport. Mugoye believes that coaching and refereeing training will significantly enhance competitiveness at the club level, where many players lack mentorship from qualified trainers.

Additionally, he emphasizes that the federation encourages coaches of beach soccer teams to acquire bench licenses. The absence of such credentials will disqualify them from managerial positions in the sport. Mugoye reveals that the federation is dedicated to expanding beach soccer across the country and has introduced it as one of the games played in secondary school competitions.

Jojo Hambali, the chairperson of Jinja Lions Soccer Club, observes that the sport is gaining popularity among young people who exhibit enthusiasm and passion. This has created a demand for professional coaches who can guide them toward professionalism.
