CRS has established football teams for boys under 10 at four Education Centres in Kolkata: BD Colony, Bibibagan, GB Lane and Sukantanagar. As well as developing their ball skills, training and playing together is a means of nurturing teamwork and giving children motivation.
Coaching – CRS has appointed a coach to take training sessions, as well as motivate and mentor the young players.
Kit and equipment – Team kits in various colours, as well as balls and training equipment, have been generously donated by UK supporters.
Matches – Teams compete periodically against each other, and matches have also been played with teams from other schools and organisations. Competing gives the boys a sense of pride in their community and identity.
