Pre Season

Palace Stars Coach Hong Kong Kids

19 July 2017

Palace trio Scott Dann, Luka Milivojevic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek got involved with some local youngsters in Hong Kong as part of the Premier League Asia Trophy Showcase event.

The Eagles stars delivered a coaching session to around 100 local children aged between eight to 12 alongside the Palace for Life Foundation’s Gary Mulcahey and Mark Bright, with the Palace contingent delivering elements of the league’s Premier Skills programme which encourages coaches to teach children all kinds of sporting activities.

With this in mind, they even got involved in a local sport called chapteh which is similar to doing keep-ups with a shuttlecock, and Milivojevic got stuck into it and proved to be quite adept!

Premier Skills is a partnership between the Premier League and the British Council which uses football as a tool to engage with and develop the skills of young people.

It uses football to develop a brighter future for young people around the world, drawing upon the global appeal of the Premier League and its expertise in delivering community programmes, alongside the British Council's global network and track record of grassroots programme delivery.

The scheme, the Premier League's lead international development project, helps the development of community coaches and referees, along with the production of learning materials to enhance people's English language skills.
