Chelsea FC IDC Singapore, based at East Campus, held a U9 boys and girls mixed football festival on Saturday, 22 September. The focus for of the festival was to promote participation opportunities for boys and girls, set a fun environment without pressure of winning or losing.
The students were put into an environment where there were no scores kept, points, or goals scored. We didn’t want the focus to be on the competition or having a clear winner but everyone enjoying playing football and running around with a smile on their faces.
The East Dragons entered three mixed boys and girls teams, Tanglin Trust School entered two with the last two slots were filled by Chelsea FC IDC Singapore teams, with a total of eight teams participating.
The parents were amazing in supporting their children - they were supportive of them, projecting positivity across the two hours, cheering and clapping could be heard for all teams creating an enjoyable day.
