Among the subjects that the ‘cafetero’ will be touching on are the new soccer training tactics, the analysis of Costa Rica team in the 2014 Brazil World Cup and the tactical behaviors of France in Russia 2018. In total there will be 10 different topics.

Juan Carlos Román, president of Linafa, explained that this meeting is a motivation for all the coaches of the amateur league with the idea of updating them on topics related to soccer techniques and tactics, and what better than with Pinto, a highly respected coach in the country.

Though the Linafa seminar is for its coaches, it is open to the public. Those interested should call 2589 1460 or write to the inbox of Facebook Linafa CR (Official Site).

Entrance has a cost of ¢35,000 colones for trainers affiliated to Linafa or ¢45,000 colones for everyone else. That cost includes lunch and a coffee.
