Street Games: Activator Courses
The Doorsteps Sport package workshops and practical sessions equip candidates to work with disadvantaged youngsters in the community sports setting. This package is recognised in the sports industry as the essential first step towards leadership and employability.
StreetGames and the FA have developed this workshop which explores some familiar ways and some informal ways football can be included in the activities you play, coach or facilitate in your community setting. There are various ways to play, take part and engage young people in football, many of which are included in this resource.
The aim of the Football Activator workshop is to show you how you can add your own ideas and thoughts to skills and activities, to engage young people in football within your community setting.
Who is it for: Community sport project leaders, coaches and volunteers.

The workshop will provide volunteers, young people, youth & community workers and community sports coaches and leaders with game ideas, basic rules and fun ways to introduce volleyball to young people in their local community.

By the end of the workshop attendees will be able to: understand Go Spike Volleyball and the fundamental skills needed to play; deliver Go Spike activities to groups of young people; understand and apply basic rules for informal Go Spike games; and organise Go Spike challenges and social competitions.
