Prior to the soccer camp, coaches and assistants participated in a workshop to familiarize them with the football3 methodology.
football3 was developed by NGO streetfootballworld. Their methodology is inspired by street football, and a match has “three halves and no referees.” The aim is to focus on “fair play, equality and teamwork” as essential parts of the game.
Hiba El Jaafil, football3-coach and former coach of the Lebanese U17-U19 women team, led the workshop.
Train the Trainers day took place in Harit Hreik-Beirut on the 7th of July 2019. Most of the trainers already had participated in Soccer camp 2018.
Soccer camp 2019 covered the 4 main regions in Lebanon, Beirut-South-North-Beqaa. Together with the football3 qualified trainers who formed and coached 55 passionate football players aged 11-16 year-old from each region for a period of 4 weeks as follows:
