AIFF, fresh from the National Sports Federation of the Year triumph, has been dedicated to improving Coach Education and has always been on the lookout for innovations which will help in the development of the same.
The process starts with AIFF informing all stakeholders about an upcoming Course through its online system and Website, following which any interested and eligible Candidate will have to register and create an online account for the application process. Course Intimation, information and advertisement will be through the AIFF Website.
The following basic steps will have to be followed for applying for a Coaching Course:
