The week-long Premier Skills Initiative, run by the Premier League and the British Council and jointly organised in India in association with the Indian Super League, concluded yesterday with intensive training for 48 grassroots football coaches and 30 referees.
The project was led by Premier League Coach Educator Jeremy Weeks and supported by UK club coaches Rashid Abba from West Ham United, Sam Hoare from Manchester City and Jill Stacey from Newcastle United, a media release said today.
The 48 football coaches were given training in teaching practical aspects of the game including a module on passing, dribbling, attacking and defending.
They were also trained on the developmental and socially inclusive aspects of the game and encouraging inclusive sessions for both disabled participants and women.
Building on the success of last years Level 2 Referee Development training programmes with the ISL, this years training programme was delivered by Gary Willard and supported by Stephen Bratt from Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), the release added.
