The UEFA FRS compact course was very informative and this knowledge will definitely be at the forefront of thinking when creating new programmes. In addition to extremely knowledgeable tutors, there were representatives from diff erent football associations, which led to a lot of sharing of ideas and perspectives, which I found made for an enriching experience.
In our daily activities we very frequently focus only on reaching targets and results ands ometimes overlook what impact each activity has on the whole chain, both on the short and the long term. This course puts things into perspective and reminds us that in every activity we undertake we should take the end results into account so that we continuously improve in our mission to provide a good game based on strong ethical foundations.
