Qatar Shell and Koora Time’s long-time hosts Aspire Academy inked a new agreement to introduce the ‘Football Skills Methodology’, an 18-week long programme specifically designed by Aspire Academy for kids who join the initiative at entry-level.
The new methodology follows a gradual progression system by adding additional elements of football training as children acquire new skills, such as ball handling, team play and goal scoring.
In line with the agreement, Aspire Academy will deliver a coaching Seminar for all the Koora Time coaches before the programme kicks off. Coaches from Aspire Academy will introduce them to the new methodology, and educate trainers on how to organise sessions and adapt training techniques to different circumstances to maximise the activation time of participants.
Andrew Faulkner, Managing Director and Chairman of Qatar Shell, and Ivan Bravo, Director General of Aspire Academy signed the agreement at the Aspire Academy on Tuesday.
Commenting on the deal, Faulkner said, “This is another proud moment in our Koora Time journey. I’m pleased that Aspire Academy joins this impactful initiative. Throughout the last seven years, we have been able to inspire over 100,000 youth, supporting Qatar’s wider sports revolution, and the next chapter in our story will ensure we continue to offer an attractive platform that many other children can benefit from for the foreseeable future.”
Bravo stressed that Aspire Academy’s re-engagement with Koora Time reflects its commitment to sharing its know-how and expertise in youth coaching to further advance the adoption of a healthy lifestyle among youth in Qatar, as one of the academy’s missions to promote healthy lifestyles within Qatar society”.
In recognition of its positive impact on the health of youth, Koora Time has won 12 awards locally and internationally. In 2019, Koora Time earned three internationally acclaimed awards, the latest of which is its fourth Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Dream Asia Award in October, received in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In season 7.95 percent of participants improved their Body Mass Index (BMI), an internationally recognised measure of height and weight, using nutritional education and other support to ensure a healthy lifestyle and wellbeing.
