Get Started With Football

get_started_with_football_4Our Get Started With Football project, in partnership with The Prince’s Trust, targets young people aged 16 – 25 years who are currently out of work but are interested in football.

The intensive five day course teaches participants the basics of coaching and is held at various venues including the Rangers Study Support Centre, Ibrox Community Complex and the Rangers Football Centre at Murray Park.

A special celebration event at the end of the week is followed up with three months of additional support for participants to help them take their next steps into further education or employment and potentially a career in football coaching.

The programme not only develops coaching expertise, but also helps participants increase their confidence, self-esteem and general employability skills.

We are grateful to The Prince’s Trust for their funding support for this programme.
