SWF Rotary support Ambassadors

Football

SWF Rotary Club welcomed a presentation by Dan Money from Ambassadors Football and presented a cheque in support of the work they do in communities. What they do and how they do it is as per the information of their web site, part of which is as below.

Each year Ambassadors Football partners with local churches, football clubs and other organisations across the UK, to deliver Football Schools aimed at playing a part in transforming communities. Please check out this video example:

Football Schools provide the opportunity to work with developing footballers (usually 7-14 year olds), by giving them the chance to play and compete in a fun, safe and positive environment. This is achieved by developing techniques and skills through, technical Sessions, small-sided games and competitions.

Central to this development is an emphasis on enjoyment and fun, whilst demonstrating core sports ethics of fair play and sportsmanship.

The other aspect of our Football Schools is being able to demonstrate a healthy role model through our FA qualified coaches to those involved. This provides us with the opportunity to highlight and develop core life skills, through coaching and teaching sessions from the Bible. Covered topics include conflict, losing & winning, putting others first and being a role model.

Partnerships with local churches are integral to the success of Football Schools. Children who have responded to the Gospel during a Football School have been able to benefit from the love and support of the local church, enabling them to grow in their faith. We have seen that as transformation occurs in the individual, it has a ripple effect on those within their circle of influence and to the wider community. Churches have also seen long-lasting meaningful contact with new families as a result of running a Football School in their community.
