The NRFF noted that teams interested in the programme could receive free training schedules on areas such as speed, power development, strength and endurance.

Yaro said the programmes are tailored to the requirements and needs of the team in question, regardless of location, adding that availability of equipment or kit can also increase players’ physical development.
