Special Olympics Bharat conducted a two-day celebration of the Unified spirit on 12th & 13th March 2018, which saw SO Bharat Coaches and the Delhi Dynamos Football Club Coaches take part in a special orientation programme, followed by an 11-a-side Unified football match involving athletes from Special Olympics Bharat.
The first day of the celebration saw SO Bharat Coaches who have been trained by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation to conduct a special orientation programme called ‘Football for Social Change’ which was aimed at teaching a total of 15 coaches from Delhi Dynamos Football Club on how to involve, promote and upgrade sports skills of Special Athletes.
The orientation programme was followed by an exciting 11-a-side Unified football match, which celebrated the Unified spirit of Special Olympics as the coaches and special athletes came together as teammates.
It’s a great initiative that Special Olympics Bharat and Tottenham Foundation have taken and we are delighted to be a part of it. “At Delhi Dynamos our aim has always been to encourage athletes to take up sports. This two-day programme has been very fruitful for our coaches who have had the opportunity to learn and also share their coaching experiences with athletes from Special Olympics,” said Delhi Dynamos CEO Ashish Shah.
