During the 9-month cycle, PACES children, coaches and assistant coaches, and local sports clubs are engaged in activities which combine sports programs, educational and capacity building activities.
The PACES model is designed to ensure that beneficiaries are re-engaged with the program once a cycle is complete:
• Children are re-enrolled until they reach 16 years of age
• Children graduates are eligible to join the program as assistant coaches
• Assistant coaches are promoted to coaches once they acquire certain qualifications
• Coaches and local sports clubs are invited to re-join the program at the beginning of the new cycle, subject to their performance in the previous one.
