New National Women's Coach

Not sure if this was posted elsewhere.

Carolina Morace has been named Head Coach of the Trinidad and Tobago Women's program. She will be directly in charge of all Women's Program on the Island from what I heard and read.

So that one session recently was her interview or acceptance?

What women's Program do we currently have?

Morace wants to take TT football to next level.
T&T Guardian Reports.


Italian Carolina Morace, the country’s new women’s coach said she intends to take T&T football to the next level.

Soon after her arrival at the VIP Lounge of the Piarco International Airport yesterday afternoon, Morace told the Guardian Media that she was totally impressed with what she saw from the T&T team when she coached the Canadian team against them back in 2010, saying, “Before Canada played T&T, I thought they would have been an easy team, but instead they turned out to be much harder than I expected.”

Morace, 52, who is here on a two and a half-year contract as coach and technical director also came with her assistant coach Nicola Williams, who will be the country’s Under-20 coach.

Morace, a native of Venice, said she was honoured to be coaching T&T, as she loves to coach women’s football but called for the support of the football public and the T&T Football Association, which she had already received from its president David John-Williams.

The local football boss told a media gathering at the unveiling of Belgian Tom Saintfiet as the new men’s football coach in December, that he was honoured to have Morace as coach of the team, noting she was among the top five women coaches in the world. She coached the Canadian and Italian national teams and club sides Lazio and Viterbese men’s club side.

The former striker who played for 10 different teams in Italy, said she will first have a look at the players, the seniors, under-20s and under-17s to see the level of skill and fitness before she selects a core of 25-26 to work with for each team.

“The first thing is to create athletes and then I will focus on the league” Morace said. In addition to being coach and technical director, the Italian is the holder of a UEFA PRO License and is best known for being the first woman to coach a professional men’s football team, Viterbese of Italian in the Serie C1, will also be responsible for coaches’ education and development in the women programme. She will also conduct grassroots programmes.

Morace, who represented Italy 153 times and scored 105 goals, (from 1978 - 1997) made it clear via skype just over a month ago, that she wants to win, but noted she cannot achieve this if the players are not committed.

The only decision that was made correctly by the ttfa ....

She has my support but even the previous coach had it as well.. she will do a good job or should if the dictator doesn't interfere

The question is, why isn't the men's program equally important ?

Looks like a solid acquisition. Really interested in what direction she'll take it in.

I wonder if the success of the American women's game is a thought - getting more Trini women better training might dramatically increase our exports to the US.

I disagree she might be a decent coach but you have to think about about a couple of things
Who had more connections to coaches in American Universities ....the US college system ranks amongst the highest level of play for women
 and young women under Pellerud would have had a chance at more quality coaching and a good education.

This is not a question of one coach vs another. It's a matter of the TTFA having actually put in place a comprehensive program for the development of women's football in T&T using an accomplished and recognised coach who was also a top player in the game. I'll take that any day and I think they need to be commended for that. Remember, in between Waldrum being released and the announcement of this program we had nothing. This is a BIG step in the right direction.

Morace observing players in first week.
By Shaun Fuentes (Guardian).


It’s clear that Carolina Morace mixes no matters when it comes to serious preparations of a team. Her demeanour and her history in the game spells a no-nonsense attitude and approach to it all.

But the Italian-born has emphasised that her first couple of weeks on the job with the T&T players will be short of intense as she tries to get a feel for the women’s game locally along with members of her staff.

“The focus is the physical tests for the players. We looked at their explosive and elastic strength and the physical trainer has already said he is impressed with some of the players. It is more than technical and tactically at this early time,” Morace said.

“To judge the player, the have to have a good condition or in others words be fit. There is no distinction between a basketball player or a football player. We want to understand more about the players now and it is a lot about the nutrition, diet and the way the players rest as well,” she added.

Football is no longer a man’s game

Football is no longer a man’s game
By Carolina Morace (theplayerstribune.com)


You think because you are blonde and beautiful that you don’t have to work hard?”

My coach was shouting at me in the dressing room after our team, Italy, had just lost 6–0.

To Denmark.

6–0.

It was unacceptable, and we all knew it. But the strange thing was, I hadn’t even played in the game. Why was he yelling at me?

My coach, Sergio Guenza, was a phenomenal manager. He spent many years managing different sides in Italy — including successful professional men’s teams. He knew what he was doing. At the time, I didn’t understand why he said what he said. Eventually, I understood that he wanted me to be upset, and to see that the team needed me on the pitch. It’s why I was on the bench. He was making a point. Sometimes you need to be taken away from something to realize how much you mean to it. The next game, the results were obvious.

He put me in the starting lineup for the first time in our next match. I scored, and we won. He gave me a smile as I walked off the pitch that said: See. You get it now?

I was just 21, but I was taught lessons at a young age that led me toward a coaching career down the road. Sometimes, you’re not teaching somebody how to play. You’re teaching them how to think. Sports are as much about a mindset — a personality — as they are physical talent.

You had to be a brave little girl if you wanted to play football in Italy.

The entire country loved football. My whole family loved football. It was in our blood.

But, it was still a “man’s game.”

My father was in the Italian army. I knew bravery. We lived in a military complex in Venice, so we had a few sports fields and facilities near us. But there was only one sport I was going to choose. My brother, Davide, was two years older than me and I followed him everywhere. I made him drag me around Venice with his friends so we could play football. I played every day with boys who were older than me by two or three years.

Our schedule in elementary school worked a bit differently in Italy than it did in other countries. It left more time for activities. We would go to class, come home and eat lunch, and then go out to play football. We would play at the local park from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., or until Mom yelled at us that it was time to come inside to do our homework.

But it is no exaggeration that we played every day. Every. Single. Day.

I was never allowed to play in an organized game with the boys because of the local rules. But when I was 11, a women’s club started in our town. Unfortunately, you had to be 12 to play. But the club told my mom that I was very good and that they were going to call in some favors to get me on the team. I’m not sure what they did … but within a few days I was playing in a league where few players were 18 but the majority were 28 or 30 years old!  That was the first time that I got to play real, competitive football.

I immediately knew that I had found my calling.

Goals.

I loved to score. The feeling was unlike anything else. It didn’t matter how skilled, fast or young you were – if you scored, people would watch. Within a few years I was playing in the second tier (Serie B) of the Italian women’s football league. I was only 13, just trying to enjoy football and learn about the game. I was still scoring lots of goals, but I didn’t know what my future would hold, or what I wanted to pursue.

That all changed in 1978, when I was 14.

I came home from school one day and my dad was waiting for me in the kitchen.

“Carolina, I want you to sit down.”

“Oh, mamma mia!” I said “What happened now?”

Usually my mom was the one who would talk to me about serious things. I was concerned about what my dad was going to say.

“The president of your football club called me,” he said. “You have been called up to the national team.”

I could barely believe him. “Which national team?”

“What do you mean, ‘Which national team?’ ” he said, laughing.

I was stunned. I was only 14, how could I have been called up to play for Italy? I knew that I could score well in Serie B. But doing it against some of the best players in the world it was going to be a different task.

I remember how skeptical the other girls on the team were of me. How could they not be? My oldest teammate was in her late 30s? Most of them were in their 20s. Before our first training session I remember the way some of them glared at me from across the dressing room.

Two hours later, I had their respect.

The hours I had spent going shoulder to shoulder with older boys helped me — because I didn’t have the physicality to compete with them, I had to develop technical ability. For me, it was all about top-of-ball skill. I had to be quicker to get the ball off my feet and to make it go where I wanted it to go.

During my career with the national team, I also grew to love the tactical side of the game. I became close with the coaches and staff, and tried to learn everything I could about the sport. During games, I would often relay instructions from the coaches to the players. I felt like I could see the pitch from different angles.

I translated that skill to broadcasting toward the end of my playing career. I began doing color commentary for men’s Serie A games. When you’re on TV, you have to think about the sport in a unique way. You need to be able to relay a very complex series of plays to casual fans watching at home, and you need to be able to do it in a way that makes sense.

I have known for a long time — probably since that 6–0 loss to Denmark — that I wanted to be a coach. The impact that you can have on not only the game, but also on the players as people was what stood out to me.

When my career ended in 1999, I took a chance and became the manager of a men’s side in Serie C. It was an opportunity that unfortunately didn’t work out, but it was an important step for me.  I learned a lot, including management’s sometimes overbearing involvement. The president at the time, Luciano Gaucci, used to intrude on training and make suggestions for his coaches. He tried to interfere with me, and at that point, I resigned. But the team, under my leadership, had won their group in the Copa Italia having defeated two teams (Ancona and Ascoli) that were later promoted to the Serie B. I felt that even though it didn’t work, I had earned enough respect on and off the field to continue my coaching career.

Despite other offers to coach men’s professional teams, I chose to be on one of the highest levels, International European championship with the Italian women’s National team – this time as manager.

The technology (data analysis and video) and talent level in the women’s game had risen since my playing days. But having spent so much time as an analyst for men’s football, I was still shocked at the differences between the two.

First of all, if you watch a women’s game, what do you notice?

Most people will say the speed.

There’s no acceleration and deceleration – everything moves at one pace compared to the men’s game. The skill is still there. The control these women have with the ball at their feet is terrific, but they lack so much in terms of physical preparation.

Why is that?

I think the problem starts with physical training from a young age. When boys become teenagers, the physical side of the game is heavily emphasized — football becomes as much about stamina as skill. It’s wind sprints and suicides … until they just can’t take anymore. For women, we still focus on the basics. It’s almost as if we think the only way to beat our opponents is with skill.

Look at the best women’s side in the world: the USWNT.

The U.S. is good technically, but its players aren’t that much better than everyone else. The Americans beat everyone because they’re fast, and they can outrun you in the 85th minute. The training systems in the U.S. don’t just focus on technical ability.

When I became the manager of the Canadian women’s national team in 2009, I tried to bring this to my practices. At the 2011 women’s World Cup, FIFA measured each team’s sprints per game. Canada ranked first, followed by the U.S. and Germany. It didn’t necessarily translate to success, because there’s much more to playing winning football at that level — including tactical approaches.

I try to study the best teams in the world as much as I can. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich — they all play the game at the highest level tactically. And my biggest takeaway from watching them play was the idea of buildup. When I came to Canada, our keeper would immediately boot the ball down the field whenever she got it. But for a team like Barcelona, the keeper’s distribution is a very important part of each attack.

These are the little things that are holding our women’s game back.

I hope to bring these ideas with me as I head (along with the rest of my staff) to my next destination: Trinidad and Tobago. You probably didn’t even know that Trinidad and Tobago had a women’s team. It hasn’t qualified for a World Cup yet, but it is improving. In 2010, Trinidad and Tobago made it to the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup, and in 2014, the national team placed fourth in the CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup.

There’s talent there, and I believe it’s a great place for me to start over and work with an enthusiastic group of young women.

Football has taken me all over the world and I’m thankful for that. We now stand at an important time for the women’s game. There’s an opportunity for us to continue to develop the sport — I just hope I can play a part.

Senior Women embrace Morace’s approach during ongoing training programme.
TTFA Media.


Members of the Trinidad and Tobago Senior Women’s Team have embraced Head Coach Carolina Morace and her staff and are putting in endless hours on the training pitch as they engage in an ongoing training programme at the Mannie Ramjohn and Ato Boldon Stadiums.

A pool of close to twenty players, excluding the overseas-based players, trains up to five days per week as Morace seeks to develop a team that is capable of performing at the highest level possible for the  qualification towards  2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. And the focus is not only on the Senior Women’s Team but programmes are also outlined for the Under 20 and Under 17 Women’s team and sessions are ongoing under the respective head coaches Nicola Williams and Manuela Tesse, both past international players and coaches in Australia and Italy.

Prolific T&T forward Kennya Cordner has lauded the work being done by Morace and her staff.

“The preparations have been really good. We are focusing more on fitness at this time to get ourselves ready for the international matches. She (Morace) is also focusing on defensive stuff as you know for years that has been an issue for us,” Cordner told TTFA Media.

“The sessions are enjoyable. She brings a different vibes to practice, making players want to work and push themselves more. As for me I have been pushing myself all these years and coaches go and coaches come  it will be the same for me. But generally it’s a great atmosphere in the training and we are gelling together,” Cordner said.

The Tobago-born former US-based player also commended the TTFA for investing tremendously in the women’s programme.

“For years we know that the TTFA wasn’t too strongly behind the women’s programme but now to see they are riding for us and putting a lot of support more than they have done for years is good. We have seen things happened because we have new coaches and I’ll ride for them as long as they ride for us. I am excited to play under the new coaches and for the country once more,” Cordner added.

National Under 20 goalkeeper Rebecca Almondoz, who has been drafted into the senior team pool, also spoke about the level of preparations, saying that there were already signs of improvements along the way so far.

“It’s been really intense but really interesting because she is bringing a new dynamic and a new look on how to do things and you can see the improvement almost immediately from all the players,” Almondoz said.

She noted that knowing that they are being guided by coaches such as Morace and her assistants drives the players to give it their all every time they step onto the field.

“It’s been really good because we know she has had the experience and she has the mindset to carry out the training sessions and we just listen to everything she says and do what she says. We train nearly every day of the week and we have our gym sessions which we have to do on our own and when she brings her intensity on the field, it makes us just want to put all our hearts into it,” Almondoz said.

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be the 8th edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the quadrennial international women’s football championship contested by the national teams of the member associations of FIFA. In March 2015, France won the right to host the event, the first time the country would host the tournament and the third time in Europe. Matches are planned for eleven cities across France. The current format of the tournament is to be among 24 national teams, including that of the host nation. The defending champions are the United States.

Morace plans for ‘March Madness’
TTFA Media.


National Women’s coach Carolina Morace believes that her players are on the right path to being prepared for taking on the rigours and demands of international women’s football.

Morace is currently overseeing a staff that is preparing the senior, under 20 and under 17 Women’s teams for international games and respective Word Cup qualification. Her first test at the international level with T&T comes when the senior team faces Venezuela in two friendlies at the Ato Boldon Stadium on March 26th and 29th. The period is being dubbed “March Madness” as the Senior Men’s Team also engage in two crucial World Cup qualifiers against Panama on March 24th and Mexico on March 28th.

“At the moment we are dealing a lot with the physical aspect of the players as I believe it is a very important component for being able to play the game,”Morace said.

“So far the players are responding well. They are demonstrating a good attitude and willingness to develop and to train hard. These two games comes at a good time for us because the players I am sure are eager to play in an international match and we also get to assess their state of play at this point in time.

“Of course it doesn’t all come together in one month or two months and this is why we have programmes for the various teams over a period of time,” Morace said.

“We have the Venezuela games and they come from South America where there is a strong passion and a lot of football. We are not quite there yet in terms of our strength but we will get there with the right amount of work.”

She has also held meetings with local women coaches and have invited them to attend and observe national team training sessions.

“We are also here to help the coaches and to develop the programme and we see it as important to have local coaches involved and to put things in place for their development also.”

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
