THE Solomon Islands Sports Coalition (SISC) in partnership with the Centre Dural, Samaritan purse and Bible Way Centre in Honiara last month have successfully completed a three months Sports, Athletes, Leadership Training (SALT) program.
The three months program was held with young determined futsal coaches from Ulawa and Marau.
The program was aimed at training the youths to become leaders who can lead by example and who also can use their position as futsal coaches to impact and influence children into a Godly direction.
According to a statement from SISC after the training the coaches can go out to their communities, schools and teach Godly values and principles through the sport of futsal.
“SISC in partnership with the Centre Dural, Samaritan Purse, and Bible Way Centre have successfully completed a three months SALT leaders training with young determined coaches from the province,” the statement said.
“These coaches are trained to become leaders who can lead by example and who also can use their position as futsal coaches to impact and influence children into a Godly direction.
“This year we have two provinces trained at Bible Way Centre by our two facilitators Pastor Nacaneili Seru who teach on Biblical leadership while Dickson Kadau, former Kurukuru coach give training on Futsal coaching
“After the training the coaches who have received the training are expected to be running the Futsal clinics in both Ulawa and Marau schools, conducting school leagues, teaching and modelling Godly values and principles.
“This new initiative is to expand the development of Futsal into the provinces. Next year we are hoping to have twelve more students, six each from two different provinces,” it adds.
