Participant to Coach Pathway in Granada

Pre-COVID gameplay

As Fútbol Sin Fronteras (FSF) Granada continues to engage our participants virtually and provide essential resources to our community through this challenging time, we have continued to witness the inspiring development of our alumnae coaches. Their energy and ability to relate to participants has been especially important during this period of remote-engagement.

Soccer Without Borders as a whole has been striving to prioritize alumni engagement, so FSF recently took the opportunity to host a roundtable discussion on their inspiring Participant to Coach Pathway. This was a time to share their experiences and their transition model with other SWB program leaders. Granada Co-Director, Veronica Balladares, facilitated the powerful shareback of the three key stages that a participant goes through before becoming a full coach. These include:

1 - Youth Leadership Program: The goal of this step is primarily defining and beginning to practice leadership skills in a controlled, lower stakes environment for participants who demonstrate leadership qualities. 

2 - Assistant Coach: In this second phase, the connection between the coach and the players, and the coach and the rest of the staff is strengthened. This is a key moment when the coach begins to separate themself from the role of participant.

3 - Junior Coach (Staff): Finally, the alumnae use this time to learn the structure of the program and take their professional skills to the next level. This is where we get to see them step into their role with confidence. 

As a part of the roundtable, three past FSF participants took time to share their own reflections on Granada’s Youth Leadership Program and how they grew into their current positions. Granada has SWB’s strongest alumni engagement strategy and US-based staff reflected on how inspiring it was to see their youth leadership in action!

Thank you for continuing to make these programs come to life for our participants and helping to facilitate this pathway of opportunity and development! We’re glad you’re here!
