for children from small communities in Russia and Kazakhstan
ISKRA
IS A NON-PROFIT SOCCER PROJECT
RU
EN
We rent soccer fields and hold free training sessions for children
Each of our soccer fields is a safe space. Here, it's not about sports performance
Iskra is about the game itself, communicating with others, mutual respect, interest in what we love, honesty, and openness
We choose project locations based on applications we receive from activists who will act as coaches. You don't need vocational training to apply and become an Iskra coach — our methodologists will teach you everything you need to know.

All our coaches get paid for their work. We will always be in touch with you to answer any questions you might have about our training methods, plan and hold events, and discuss project development.

HOW OUR PROJECT WORKS:
1
During the first stage, we collect applications from those who want to join Iskra and teach kids soccer. We look for activists from small towns (between 10,000 and 50,000 people) in Russia and Kazakhstan. On May 20, 2022, we finished collecting the first batch of applications, and the best candidates are already working with us on the project sites. We are currently recruiting additional coaches, so you can still apply to participate in the project.
FOR US, CHOOSING THE RIGHT COACHES IS CRUCIAL
WE WILL CAREFULLY REVIEW ALL APPLICATIONS AND TALK TO THE CANDIDATES PERSONALLY IF NECESSARY
During the second stage, we will contact the town administration, tell them about our project, and try to find a suitable project site.

ONCE ALL THE SITES HAVE BEEN SELECTED, WE WILL BEGIN RENTING THE FIELDS, PREPARING THEM, AND TEACHING THE COACHES
FINALLY, WHEN EVERYTHING IS READY, KIDS CAN START PLAYING SOCCER UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF OUR COACHES, WHO CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON OUR SUPPORT

We hope that kids from different Iskra locations will be able to meet each other at tournaments and other events organized by us, and that our coaches will be able to learn from each other.
We look forward to coming up with many new interesting ideas as well as finding friends and partners whith whom we will be able to create something truly impressive.
