First week of ‘Just Play’ comes to an end.

Thursday 24 June 2010 marked the fourth day of the ‘Just Play’ Program in Samoa. ‘Just Play’ grassroots project manager Atufili Talaia and FFS technical director Tunoa Lui conducted a two-day course, which started on Wednesday 23 June 2010 for the second cluster of participants.
The second cluster was made up of 17 teachers from different public schools around Samoa, as well as one community representative from Vaiala, three representatives from the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture and five Football Federation Samoa (FFS) volunteers.
Just like the first cluster, participants were given ‘Just Play’ manuals and were taught on how to teach children different football skills. These skills included dribbling/running with the ball, shooting, controlling and passing. Participants then had to put into practise what they had learned by organizing a festival with children from Vailoa Primary School. After the festival participants were give ‘Just Play’ certificates by the presenters.
Just Play grassroots project Manager Atufili Talaia was very pleased with the progress of the courses through out the week. “These two courses went very well, we were able to provide the participants with useful information and tools that they would need to deliver the program at their schools”. Mr Talaia also added that “now we have to monitor and provide assistance to the schools when they start to deliver the program over the next six weeks”.
