CAF High Level Coaching Workshop To Enhance Women Football


The Botswana Football Association (BFA) Head of Women Football Tsholofelo Sethoko says the participation of the former Botswana Senior Women National team (The Mares) Coach Gaolethoo Nkutlwisang at the CAF High Level Women Coaching Workshop will enhance her skills hence uplifting women football in Botswana.

The workshop took place on  the 14th- to 18th May 2024 in Saudi Arabia. The aim of the workshop was to ensure gender equality in football and enrich them with advanced coaching skills.

In an interview, Sethoko has stated that Nkutlwisang will gain skills at the workshop, that will in turn help her in training local players, some of whom have been selected in the squads of national teams. The knowledge she will acquire will also come in handy for the upliftment of women football in the country, she said.

“CAF has selected women with class B license from all over Africa who are engaged in the national teams. Nkutlwisang is the most eligible person because she has been working with women’s teams for a long time. It’s a high level course that needs someone with CAF-B coaching qualifications and at the moment Ronaldo is the only woman in Botswana who has the licence,” she said.

According to Sethoko, currently there are only two Batswana women who are studying the CAF-B coaching qualifications. Sethoko noted that such programmes are meant to increase the number of local coaches, their quality and also to ensure gender equality and inclusivity.

Nkutlwisang has expressed excited for having been invited to participate at the workshop. She told Times Sport that the training was most welcome as it will improve her tactical skills and she will also learn how other teams train and approach their games.

Some of the notable achievements by Nkutlwisang include taking Botswana to the WAFCON quarter finals in 2022 for the first time in history of women football in Botswana. She was recently appointed as Jwaneng Galaxy Ladies Team Head Coach.
