We delivered a workshop with participants on the Level 1 coaching qualification at the Liberty Stadium
The workshop we deliver to coaches is extremely important to equipped them to firstly deal with an incident when it arises and to ensure they understand the importance of reporting any racist incidents and the correct procedures to deal with them professionally.

Participants of a joint project with Swansea City FC and the Prince’s Trust took part in a “Dealing with Racism Workshop” delivered by our Welsh Campaign Worker Jason Webber and Education Worker Chris Stokes.
SRtRC have supported this project with Swansea City FC and other clubs in Wales over the last few seasons and delivered another workshop this week at the Liberty Stadium to 15 individuals.
The aspiring coaches were part of a “NEETS” (Not in Education or Employment) project run by Swansea City FC Football in the Community department funded by the Prince’s Trust.
The participants are currently being trained to achieve their FAW Level 1 football coaching qualification and will be certified to coach at junior league level in Wales working with young people.
The workshop educates the group firstly about what racism is and of the forms of racism that exist in society. This will help the newly qualified coaches to be able to identify any incidents of racism during their coaching careers.
The activities during the workshop included examples of real life incidents that have occurred at some point during a football match. After a discussion, guidance was provided to deal with these incidents and the correct channels to go down for the coaches to report them.
We will be delivering our “Dealing with Racism Workshop” at Wrexham FC along with other Welsh clubs during the 2012/13 season.
