The aim is to conduct a long term sustained football training program to create professional football players who would go on to represent the club and the country.
It is with the same objective in mind, that Jamshedpur Football Club & Hill Top School is collaborating to conduct the Grassroots Festival for the school students.
Grassroots programme allows access to football in a child’s own environment.
It attracts young players (3+ boys & girls) to the sport for all irrespective of caste, creed and gender. There is development before winning as football is a game full of fun: Football can be played anywhere, everywhere and it is the best teacher as it teaches us the values of life. Grassroots Football creates an enjoyable experience for kids.
It helps to connect, engage and mobilize the entire football community. It helps to work on actual development in Grassroots & Youth – Tangible results.
