FA Level 1 Coaching Course (One Game One Community FA Level 1 Coaching Course)
One Game, One Community is one of the most prominent equality and community engagement initiatives in the country which sees the game's biggest names stand alongside communities across the UK under the banner 'One Game, One Community'
We at the BCFA alongside our sponsors are hosting a FA Level 1 Coaching Course for the BME community at a subsidised rate in order to encourage the wider community to take their first steps onto the coaching ladder. Candidates of the course will also have the opportunity to speak to key figures in the footballing community who have overcome many obstacles within their professional careers to make a clear name for themselves in the beautiful game.
Walsall Football Clubs, Asian prodigy Netan Sansara, a first team player from Aston Villa Football Club, Asian Bhangra Artist H Dhami who has been helping encourage the Asian community to Get into Football, and the FA’s Brendon Batson who works primarily into encouraging participation in football from the ethnic community will all be on call to share their experiences in football and use their inspirational figures to break down barriers in the community and encourage the wider community to get into football.
Dave Shelton, BCFA secretary said ‘One Game One Community is a fantastic campaign which we along with our sponsors are fully in support of. We all believe that football should be inclusive to all regardless of your race, skin colour or culture.
Holding this FA Level 1 Coaching Course at a subsidised rate has helped break down barriers within the community and has given the opportunity for the BME community especially from the low income inner city regions to get onto the coaching ladder and open doors for them to get into football.’
The FA Level 1 caching course will take place next week and each day the BCFA will be monitoring the progress of the candidates which can be followed on www.birmnghamfa.com For further information on the Kick It Out week of action please log onto www.kickitout.org
