Kids get life-skills training

Over 200 youngsters, aged between 10-14 years old, from all over Cambodia, learned the values of equal opportunity, fair play, teamwork and life skills during the three-day Equal Play Football Festival during the holiday period.

Hosted by Phnom Penh Crown football club, the festival was organised by SALT Academy from Battambang, streetfootballworld, and was financially supported by the Sports Promotion of the German Federal Foreign Office.

Twenty teams, each composed of six girls and five boys, came together from a variety of organisations for a mixed-gender football tournament, workshops and activities over the three days.

Twenty young women were given the task of leading the teams to demonstrate their leadership qualities and inspire their teams as role models.

A team from Battambang won, while each team also presented a cultural performance of their own choosing.

German Ambassador Joachim Baron von Marschall attended the opening and closing ceremony and dignitaries included Rithy Samnang, the president of Phnom Penh Crown FC, Monika Staab, the German Foreign Office Football Ambassador, Kazunori Ohara, the technical director of the Football Federation of Cambodia, and Sam Schweingruber, head coach of Phnom Penh Crown and founder of SALT Academy.
