MOSCOW, November 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Ministry of Education and Science and the national Football Union /RFS/ organize training of football teachers for secondary schools.
The two authorities signed an agreement on Thursday.
“Football is sports number one in this country, and children are always keen to kick a ball, so we should provide the necessary conditions,” Minister of Education and Science Andrei Fursenko said. “Representatives of the football community have expressed their readiness to participate in it, and I hope that practical steps will follow the document.”
“Unfortunately, nowadays the level of coaches working with children and teenagers leaves much to be desired, not more than 30 percent of coaches meet the necessary requirements,” RFS’ Deputy President Nikita Simonyan said.
According to the agreement, the ministry and the football union plan to organize professional training of football coaches, who would teach children during physical training classes at schools.
“It is important to make classes interesting,” Fursenko said. “By signing the agreement, we give recommendations to schools as to how those lessons should be organized.”
RFS will provide experts, football veterans for the training of teachers, while the ministry will continue the implementation of the programme to modernize general education, which contains as a part purchases of sports equipment, organization of modern sports fields for training and sports.
“Nowadays, at least half of our children may go in for football,” Fursenko said. “We shall try to make it so that within 1-2 years everybody has the opportunity.”
