Royal Netherlands Football Academy – KNVB
We have partnered with the Royal Netherlands Football Academy (KNVB) in developing our coaches’ skills. Consequently, more than 200 of our coaches have received intensive coaching training by KNVB instructors. The KNVB program helps coaches organize and conduct practice sessions for young players (6-16 years of age). The course, which lasts for 4 days, guides coaches in how to train on small football pitches, design practice sessions that include exercises to maximize the benefits for children, and plan a non-competitive tournament where children from different communities play side-by-side to encourage social interaction and prevent the development of rivalries.
