Street Soccer players had the opportunity to lead a youth session in Lambeth as part of the Celebrating Young Lambeth event last week.
Clinton, Abdi and Sobaan delivered a football-themed session to youngsters at Kennington Park in Lambeth. This was a fantastic opportunity for our boys to showcase their development as young leaders in front of a number of other organisations. Street Soccer coach Matthew was present on the day and was blown away by the confidence, leadership and communication shown by our three lads:
“The boys were excellent. From the very start, they took ownership of the session and were able to organise each drill and activity in a clear and engaging way. I’m very proud of them.”
The trio have been assisting Street Soccer sessions during the summer and have shown clear progress in their personal development.
“There are a number of players who we can now rely on to help with events, sessions or just in and around the facility. It’s positive to see such a community feel to Street Soccer and I believe that’s why it is so special for a lot of these guys to come here” said Matthew.
The multi-sport event in Lambeth was a positive way to round off a successful summer for Street Soccer London. We would like to thank all the amazing organisations who we’ve worked with both at this event and previous. We look forward to some more exciting opportunities later this year.
