Football Schools

Since its inception Jamshedpur Football Club has made a commitment to develop football in the local region. Whether it be promoting grassroots football or establishing football schools, the goal has always remained the same which is to promote football in the community and bring forward local talent by establishing a strong foundation.

The reasoning behind opening football schools is that they play a vital role in the local community. Not only do they teach the children to live a healthy lifestyle, they also help develop an individual’s sporting talents, ultimately bringing people from the local community together. Apart from that, football gives countless youngsters and adults a chance to have fun and at the same, learn the values of teamwork and discipline.

By initiating young kids into football at a young age, it is helpful to their development as a professional as they begin to develop their game sense and start understanding the intricacies of football. Thus, as they grow and develop, so does their knowledge of the game, keeping them a step ahead of those who join the sport at a latter age.
