Queens Park Rangers Community Trust have announced their newest initiative, which will be a joint venture with Redeemer Celtic Football and Well Being club here in Dundalk.
The London-based football club's “Sport and Thought” initiative is a programme which joins the sport of football, psychodynamic thinking and theory to create a space to encourage thought and act as a catalyst to promote emotional and behavioural change.
QPR Community Trust which is set up since 2009 and has so far reached over half a million children across London will deliver a coach education programme to Adults and young people in the Cox’s Demesne area .
This programme will use football as a tool to engage with young people to help create safer, stronger and more respectful communities in the Cox’s Demesne Community and greater Dundalk area.
As part of the funded programme, the club members will participate in a coach education programme and work with under age teams in the area.
The CEO of QPR Trust recently said: “ This is not just about coaching. This is not just about football. This is about using the power of football to reach people from all backgrounds. Sport motivates, inspires and connects across a wide area of the community to deliver positive outcomes to people’s lives.”
The programme will begin in November and the coaches will work with QPR Community trust over three weekends to gain accreditation and give the young people a fun way of learning to respect themselves, their sport and their community.
Looking ahead Redeemer Celtic Football and Well Being Club aims to build on this exciting initiative to have a positive influence on the lives of young people in the area.
