Grassroots Football Development Programme is football for all (i.e. football for everyone, by everyone, everywhere). It targets both boys and girls aged 6-12 years old through schools, communities and club initiatives. The key concept of this football development programme is to bring together as many people as possible through football. the grassroots football development programme advocates exchange and sharing of human values and, of course, promotes the pleasure of practising our marvelous sport.
Of course not all young players will become the stars of the future and they do not all have the skills required to become professional players. So intensive training sessions and complicated tactics are not appropriate. The essential elements of grassroots football are relationships, team spirit and fun. This football development programme offers everyone the chance to play football, without discrimination and without the need for major infrastructures. It involves all stakeholders of the EFA which includes Government, Non Government Organizations, Communities and Schools just to mention a few.
