SRtRC delivers a Level 1 FAW coaching course to participants of the Street Football Wales Project
The individuals attended the two day course in Swansea delivered by qualified tutor and SRtRC Campaign Worker Jason Webber and Welsh Football Trust BME Inclusion officer Mizan Rahman.
This was the first time SRtRC has organised and delivered a Level 1 course after our Introduction to Football Coaching workshop and the outcome has been extremely well received and positive amongst those who have been involved.
Street Football Wales received funding from Sport Wales to launch their project last May, with key aims to develop a core group of coaches, plus boost confidence and self-esteem of participants from various backgrounds who have mainly been secluded from society.
Participants from this course have seen the advantage of the SFW project & the funding from Sport Wales which allowed us to deliver this course. They were all keen to progress further with their Coach Education after finishing the course. Many were adamant that without SFW & SRtRC they would not have had these opportunities.
They will be hoping to get involved in volunteering at local clubs and schools, teaching young people the new skills they have learnt and empowering them to be leaders and role models to our youth in Wales.
Campaign Worker Jason Webber spoke about the land mark occasion: “We have been delivering the Introduction Workshop over the last few years and have seen the benefits of it for key individuals and groups we are engaging with. Having now delivered a FAW level 1 to the participants after the initial Intro workshop courtesy of Sport Wales funding is a huge stepping stone for our Social Inclusion work and for these individuals who would simply not be able to access the course without our help or the funding.”
We will be delivering the same project with participants of the Street Football Wales project in Newport in the coming months.
