We delivered our ‘Dealing with Racism for players’ Educational workshop to Connah’s Quay FC academy.
The Nomads became the 3rd club to have a player training session this season. We delivered two sessions to their under 8-16 age groups as part of our new player training workshops program.
Campaign worker Jason Webber and education worker Chris Stokes attended Colleg Cambria to deliver an educational workshop to the players.
The workshop focused on explaining what racism is, how the players can deal with racism and the procedures and importance of reporting racism.
The young players were very engaged in the topic and had many experiences to share and questions to ask.
The end of the session focused on terminology, specifically what words are acceptable or unacceptable in society, which cleared up any confusion amongst the squad.
The 3rd session of its kind was again big success and continues to show the benefit of delivering this training to football players in Wales.
Our next player training session will be at Prestatyn Town FC.

We would like to thank the club for supporting the player training program and the players for taking part in the workshop.
