Manuals and Tools

A Training Manual for Practical Application: experiences, basics and training exercises, presented by Deutsche Kinder- und Jugendstiftung (DKJS), DFL Stiftung, Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Migration, and Flüchtlinge und Integration.

In the last years many sports clubs have opened their doors to refugees and have shown outstanding commitment. It has been shown in practice: willingness and commitment form the foundation. But you also need know-how to successfully handle these new challenges and the special life situations of refugees. In football, this means: reacting to a wide range of differing levels of ability. Creating a training session, which works, even though explanations in your language are not yet understood. Knowing your own limits and being aware where to find advice if players come to you with their problems.

This manual is based on an exchange of experiences made by people providing training sessions for refugees in the course of the programme "Welcome to Football“. It is linked to the hope of providing coaches with practical ideas and support, and of reinforcing their commitment for respectful coexistence of people of different origins.
