CRS has established football teams for boys under 10 at several education centres in Kolkata. As well as developing their ball skills, training and playing together is a means of nurturing teamwork and giving children motivation.
CRS appoints 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.
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.
