As head coach of the Lae National Elite Academy, Harrison Kamake, is responsible for the development of Papua New Guinea’s best emerging footballers.
Kamake is the first coach from PNG to achieve OFC B Licence accreditation.
OFC Technical Director, Patrick Jacquemet, says Kamake’s achievement should be duly acknowledged, as he is an asset to PNG football.
Gaining the OFC licence is not easy, and Kamake has shown not only that he is dedicated to the process but also that he is capable of being responsible for his own learning.
In his role with the Lae Academy all aspects of player development come under the microscope, including schooling and life alongside the delivery of programs focusing specifically on football.
Through his role with the academy, Kamake has also been able to assist with Besta PNG United FC, the PNGFA development team which participates in the National Soccer League, and has had a hand in the development of some of PNG’s rising football stars.
