Besides the secretaries, all coordinators of the Secondary Schools games (UMISSETA) have also been invited to attend the seminar.
According to the TFF information officer Boniface Wambura, letters of invitations have already been dispatched to the invitees.
 The seminar aims at imparting knowledge and overview of the youth tournament which has been staged for over five years now.
 Major highlight of the seminar is expected to be adherence to age of the players to avoid cheating. Age cheating has been a huge problem recurring in the tournament in most of the editions.
The Copa Coca-Cola tourney has been a perfect stage for  football coaches and trainers to scout talents.
The tournament will kickoff from the district level before advancing to regions and then national level.
