SRtRC in partnership with the Welsh football Trust are delivering a Level 1 coaching award for Street Football Wales.
This will be our first ever Level 1 that we have delivered following our Introduction to coaching Workshop with our Social Inclusion project and it is something that we hope can get bigger and better

In September we will be delivering a Football Association of Wales level 1 coaching award to participants of the Street football Wales project in Swansea and Newport.
We delivered our Introduction to Football Coaching Workshop last June in Swansea and Newport and the participants of those workshops will continue their journey by attending the coaching award at the same venues.
The FAW Level 1 is a 15 hour course providing a basic introduction to the organisation of football practices in a fun, safe environment with an emphasis on skill development. This is a mandatory award for all coaches involved in junior football in Wales.
SRtRC will play a huge roll in up skilling individuals that have had a lack of opportunities in recent times and will provide a new beginning and chance towards the future.
Street Football Wales is a social inclusion project currently run in Wales. The league is made up of team members aged 16 and above and facing social exclusion through homelessness, substance misuse, mental ill health or cultural issues.
Some team members may have been long term unemployed or involved in the criminal justice system but all are facing daily barriers to be part of the society and communities they live in, caused by the ever present stigma attached to their situations.
For many, fighting for acceptance and constantly facing rejection and discrimination time and again has left them feeling as though their only option is to give up and stop trying to fit in.
Street Football Wales is there for people when they have reached their lowest ebb. It offers people the opportunity to become involved with a team where they will not be judged or stigmatised.
SRtRC and SFW are continuing to support each other’s organisations and SRtRC will be supporting the Welsh Homeless football team organised through SFW at the Homeless World Cup this October prior to the Fortnight of Action.
