NAC Breda re-starts its ‘Playing for Success’ project on a digital pathway
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NAC Breda’s ‘Playing for Success’ project had to be put on hold. However, last week the project resumed with adjustments and precautions, to be continued digitally.
The ‘Playing for Success’ programme is designed for students from upper primary, junior secondary and senior secondary education, who experience difficulties in school due to social or emotional reasons. Since 2011, NAC Breda has had its own learning centre – the NACADEMY – where the Playing for Success programme takes place.
Every week, young people from different levels of education visit the NACADEMY to follow individual programmes. The programmes help motivate the group, aged between 9 to 23 years so that they return with a newly gained confidence in their schools.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the NACADEMY learning centre had to close its doors. Normally, during this time, dozens of students would be taking part in the ‘Playing for Success’ programme, being amongst the inspiring surroundings of the stadium alongside, having the opportunity to interact with NAC’s players and trainers as part of the programme’s unique, enjoyable learning environment.
However, now that primary education is slowly getting started again in The Netherlands, ‘Playing for Success’ has re-started once again, but with adjustments and precautions, such as the programme being digitalised! In the near future, the students involved will go through one play round every week.
In addition, the students involved all received a well-filled goodie bag at home! This included contributions from Schipper Accountants, Citroën Van Beek and Perfetti van Melle.
