Slum Soccer in collaboration with Premier Skills is organising two days grassroot coaches training programme which is going to take place from 15th and 16th June at Slum Soccer Academy Bokhara Nagpur.
This is the first-ever time that Premier Skills coaches are going to come to Nagpur for the training. The felicitators of this training will be Joao Rebello from Goa (Premiere Skills Coach Educator) and Sajid Jamal from Nagpur (Premiere Skills Coach Educator). During this training four Deaf football coaches from Nagpur will also attend the training and will continue to deliver football sessions in their communities. The training will be the combination of classroom and football activities.
Premier Skills initiative is run by the Premier League and the British Council in association with the Sports Authority of India and the Indian Super League. The programme uses football to develop a brighter future for young people around the world.
In this model, Premier League coaches from UK train Indian Coach Educators and Referees from across the country. These coach educators then go back to their communities as Premier Skills Coach Educators (PSCE) where they train grassroots level coaches and referees using Premier Skills methodology of community coaching.
Coaches and referees gain employability skills and football players in rural communities get access to international standards of coaching.
Thus, Premier Skills programme aims to give young people the skills to transform themselves and their communities through football. The program uses football to encourage women and girls to participate in sports and build confidence.
Nationally, Premier Skills has engaged more than 33,000 young people in India till date. The program promotes inclusion, equality and increasing female participation in football.
