The methodology of coaching and recruitment mechanisms of 5 clubs in Ethiopia is the issue of this study. Since one has impact on the other it is imperative to study both together i.e., methodology of coaching is to be implemented on players at the program who are either recruited from other clubs who were already at the program before. This study was conducted to assess the method coaches at the country achieve their task and the recruitment procedures of the players at some selected clubs from 5 clubs of the country 3 from the capital city and 2 from regions whose result exceeds their rivals during data collection. Players who are currently enrolled at the club for the last 2 years and coaches of the 5 clubs are subjects of the study. The sample clubs were taken from the 18 clubs by disproportionate stratified random sampling. Quota non-probability sampling is used to select the players while coaches were selected purposefully. Questionnaire was used as a means of obtaining information from the subjects who are coaches and players of the clubs. Coaches way of coaching their goalkeepers, defense, attackers, way of analyzing games, method of recruitment, factors impeding their work were some of the issues raised under the study by the coaches, while time spent for their procedure to be accomplished, where the procedure delayed more, their reason to leave their former club, and reason to choose the current club were of the players’ concern. The research indicated that most of the coaches have no suitable facilities even though they all have full involvement in recruitment. Many of them have no youth development programs. There were many shortcomings at the coaches methodology of coaching like the goalkeepers practicing separately, reporting with his team mates at trainings, not considering football experience while giving roles to the players at defense, and not considering age, football experience and the salary the player demands always. The coaches’ way of game analysis was only of the two types i.e. using computer & by themselves but not using neutral observers. Players had many reasons to leave a club like less result of the club& the dearth of incentives, while the coaches’ success; the incentives sufficiency had power to attract players. Players’ recruitment procedures delays for long time at their former clubs and at football federation.
