Our previous 'Sidelined-2-Sidelines' was a bespoke coach education & mentoring programme for 16-25 year olds specifically designed to increase the number of British Asian coaches who could act as role models and help develop provision in predominantly Asian communities. The programme aimed to increase the number of young people from minority communities accessing high quality football coaching, inspire others to get involved as volunteer coaches at the grass roots level and provide pathways into the professional game.

Based on a high quality training provision, Sidelined-2-Sidelines was not only about providing jobs to young coaches, but also upskilling them as youth workers able to engage effectively with disadvantaged young people living in marginalised communities.
