The participating grassroots community coaches and physical education teachers will be evaluated as they themselves deliver Premier Skills coaching techniques to thirty untrained Nigerian football coaches and sixty young people from the local community.

To give people the confidence, knowledge and skills to deliver football provision in their communities not only improves the person but also benefits those in the local area.”
