This week school Ilidža – Doglodi is implemented, while tenth OFFS will be held in Doboj Kakanj, later this year.
All the Open Fun Football Schools were outstanding, continuously showing the relevance of open , fun and inclusive events for children in all communities.
As each area and community is different, so is each OFFS. Specifics range from some schools having majority of girls participanst, to those who include only primary schools teachers as coaches and children non-club members , to those implemented on pitches that have been only rebuilt now – two years after devastating floods.
By initiative of CCPA Copenhagen and CCPA OFFS Sarajevo, we are preparing the implementation of two border schools.
In cooperation with network of leaders and coaches and national offices, we plan to implement OFFS Bratunac – Ljubovija ( BiH – Srbija) and Novi Grad – Kostajnica – Hrvatska Kostajnica ( BiH – HR).Border schools are a special chategory of schools, where at least two local communities meet and cooperate, but coming from different countries.
Other than the OFFS dedicated goals, these schools have an added value – connecting children and coaches from two countries, creating platform for future , international sport and other cooperation and providing children a chance to travel to another country. This year, CCPA will organize few of these border schools across Balkan.
