The Box Soccer Schools Programme was established by Tony McMinn, who oversees delivery of the programme. The programme has been designed to use sport and in particular football, where appropriate, to deliver health and well-being indicators in a progressive manner.
With relatable examples from the world of football, the teachers establish a connection with pupils to introduce them to Growth Mindset, Communication and Teamwork. The programme is school based and classes are delivered from a mix of the classroom and PE or gym hall.
Due to the popularity and increased uptake since the programme was launched in 2017, there are now a number of Box Soccer Schools coaches who visit schools to deliver lessons from the programme.
