Indian Super League franchise Jamshedpur FC kick-started their Grassroots Initiative with a Workshop for coaches present in the city of Jamshedpur. The workshop was held at Tata Football Academy from July 16 to 18 with JFC Head of Youth Development Kundan Chandra in-charge.
The workshop also integrated with a Grassroots festival saw over 120+ kids participate from various schools across the city.
“The kids have thoroughly enjoyed playing and ask us if we can come every day,” said Richa Ahuja who teaches at Mt. Litera Zee School in Jamshedpur.
Lalita Sareen, who’s the Initiative Director at Mt. Litera Zee School, was glad to see the activities taking place and encouraged all parents to ‘make football a part of their lives’.
The participants who successfully made their journey over the three days thoroughly enjoyed working and learning as coaches. Rajni Kerai, a budding referee, mentioned that she learnt new techniques during the workshop. And another participant – Amrish Kumar, a Sports Teacher – had quite a lot to learn and take away for future use and hopes to involve himself in Grassroots even more.
