Zambia Trip Update – Day Four

STFITC Team have now completed day four of the Swindon / Livingstone partnership. The team have been extremely busy continuing the ever growing programme by coaching in a disabled school, continuing to educate the coaches, expanding on the ‘young persons’ refereeing course and encouraging all girls to enjoy and partake in football coaching and small sided games. In particular the girls development programme was a great success today having 30+ girls arrive to continue enhancing their footballing experience.

Shane Hewlett, who has taken a lead on educating the coaches along with Luke Sharps has commented; ‘It has been a fantastic start. The coaches are really improving and beginning to understand and implement good coaching practices, techniques and progressions which we use on a day to day basis. They have a fantastic attitude and drive towards the beautiful game, football is so important in this country. I am particularly pleased that the coaches will continue to progress and enhance their delivery to the teams when we leave.’DSC_0197

Jon Holloway, Beth Thompson, Becca Ash and Jack Goodenough started the challenging task of installing solar lights in the local Zambian school of ‘Linda South’. We will continue to prepare the classrooms for the grand revealing on Thursday 30th May. ‘Lights for Learning’ a local Swindon based charity has been instrumental in delivering a course on how to install the equipment and lighting, accompanied to donating the equipment free of charge to influence and improve the lives of many children schooling in Zambia. A huge thank you to ‘Lights for Learning’ from all at STFITC and the Coaches Association of Zambia. We would also like to thank our main sponsor Intel for providing us with a top of the range ultrabook, which enables us to send home a daily update from Zambia.
