SRtRC delivered a coaching Education workshop to members from the community in Butetown
The coaching workshop is aimed towards ethnic minority 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 workshops have been funded by the Big Lottery and the Sports Council for Wales.
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 supported by Education Co-ordinator Simon Richards and WFT Inclusion officer Hafizur Rahman.
Following the workshop many of the participants highlighted their interest to attended a level one course in Cardiff and are looking to volunteer with SRtRC and with activities in the youth club.
