Raise Your Game – An Unrivalled Insight into Working in Football

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

Kick It Out is on the lookout for promising young hopefuls eager to be fast-tracked into the football industry as the campaign’s Mentoring and Leadership Project enters a new era – starting with the Raise Your Game conference on Wednesday 10th April 2013 (Congress House, Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3LS).

Mentoring has been a key focus of Kick It Out’s work in recent years. Since 2011, a conference has taken place on an annual basis bringing people together from across the country looking to find work in different areas of the game. It has attracted established, credible and respected individuals already working in football wanting to advise and set those attendees on their chosen pathway.

After the success of the Raise Your Game regional series of events in 2012, this year’s conference sees a thrust towards reaching new communities and individuals. The ever-growing areas of sports science and physiotherapy, and the work of licensed football agents have been added to the current list of disciplines focused upon by the Project:

  • Management and coaching
  • Media and communications
  • Football administration
  • Community and grassroots
  • Refereeing

The Raise Your Game conference will capture the momentum and essence of those regional events which have allowed people to walk away with football-related qualifications, work placements, a better understanding of how to secure employment and ideas for enhancing their own initiatives.

Previous years have seen the conference attract high calibre mentors such as Norwich City manager Chris Hughton, England women’s international Rachel Yankey, former Charlton Athletic striker Jason Euell, Arsenal legend Paul Davis and West Bromwich Albion hero Brendon Batson.

  • To register your interest for the Raise Your Game conference, please contact Mentoring and Leadership Project manager Troy Townsend via email on troy@kickitout.org or by calling 020 7253 0162.
