The workshop was another big success with more looking to go onto their Level 1 and becoming involved in football coaching in Wales at grassroots level.

This was the first coaching education workshop in Newport and the second SRtRC has delivered in Wales.
The coaching workshop is aimed towards ethnic communities, which are under represented in playing and coaching roles at all levels of football in the UK.
The workshop and its materials has been developed in partnership with the Welsh Football Trust and delivered alongside their Inclusion Officer Hafizur Rahman.
The indoor session also includes a video interview with SRtRC Patron Leroy Rosenior who talks about his experience while coaching at clubs such as Torquay United. Leroy offers good advice to the future coaches about the fun of coaching and the benefits within football and society of becoming involved.
Participants of the workshop learned about what football coaching is all about, the coaching qualifications that are available and how to access them in Wales.
Each person had a taster of theory activities from the Level one in Wales and some coaching practice examples delivered by Campaign Worker Jason Webber.
Following the workshop many of the participants have attended a level one course in Newport and 2 from the previous workshop in Cardiff are due to attend their level 2.
