Intern at Society Empowerment Project (SEP) in the year 2014
I’m Jos Schaart. I got the opportunity to work as an intern at Society Empowerment Project (SEP) in the year 2014.
As a sports management student from Hanze University, Netherlands, my roles were as follows;
Based on my solid educational foundation and passion for sports and fitness I was in charge of talent acquisition and training, program development, monitoring and enhancing performance and other sporting events and programs. The few years I spent at SEP taught me that there is no manual in football and especially when nurturing young talents.
The experience I treasure the most is training the U14 team because from that I learn a lot about the sport, growth, talents and life as a whole.
At this age, it is very possible to plan and deliver sports-based life skills coaching sessions. Through sport, we impart courage, teamwork, discipline and many other skills vital for a person to live a better life. Training kids challenges you to want to learn more ways of speaking in a language they can understand.
You have to know them individually and tailor you’re training in a way that can cater for each of their needs. From this, I have learned patience, empathy, passion and has made me a better communicator, instructor and coach. I am currently the CRS Manager at FC Emmen, Netherlands.
