Post Time:29/03/2017 Browse Number:

       Starting from this 2017 spring term, children from a football team in Wucheng Qianxi Primary school became the most enviable kids on campus. Now they have a foreign football coach---Jean d’Amour from Rwanda, Africa. At home he was a member of U17 Youth Team. Last year Jean d’Amour came to China to study at Jinhua Polytechnic. In Rwanda, there are children playing football everywhere, and he was surprised to find out that many kids in China have never touched a football.

       After coming to Jinhua, Jean d’Amour kept playing football in his spare time. Then, he met Wen Xiang, Deputy Secretary-General of the Jinhua Football Association, a chief coach of Jinhua Youth Football Centre and a football coach in Qianxi Primary School. After inviting Jean d’Amour to the school, Wen Xiang said that Jean d’Amour’s assistance was a great help in teaching children the basic football skills and techniques.

       Shi Yutong, a fifth-grade student from Anhui, whose father is a truck driver, has never played football before, but she decided to give it a try. Now she is much better at football. Last November, she was representing her school in Wucheng Primary and Secondary Schools Football League. Shi Yutong and her teammates took a third place in the competition! For Jean d’Amour, seeing these children being passionate about football is the greatest achievement. (By Jin Lu, translated by Nataliia Litvinova)
