Peer-leaders trainers (los monitores)

Peer-leaders trainers (los monitores)
The success of the sportive model of Tiempo de Juego lays on the commitment and leadership of some of the young participants, who assume a role of peer-leaders. For the soccer training, the 450 kids of Tiempo de Juego are divided into 8 categories, and a peer-coach conducts each one. For doing so, the young "monitores" receive a training on how to be a good coach, on leadership abilities and on different sportive techniques.
