AIFC launches Heartful Coach Program for football coaches

Association of Indian Football Coaches (AIFC) kicks off Heartful Coach Program to inspire inner transformation and excellence for football coaches.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between AIFC and Heartfulness Education Trust of the Heartfulness Institute to start ‘The Heartful Coach program – Let’s Coach with our Heart.’ This Coaches Welfare Program is meant to assist Grassroots coaches, Elite coaches, PE teachers and all Indian football stakeholders.

We are happy to have this partnership as we want to further cater to the welfare of our dear Coaches. This initiative is a perfect example of empowering to help empower and we are really excited to take off with the Heartful Coach Program and believe this initiative to inculcate compassion, tolerance, empathy, humanity and to help in the holistic development, which includes mental well-being of a coach or an individual. – said Mr. Dinesh Nair, AIFC Founder & Director

The Heartful Coach Program is a much-required transformational program that allows modern day coaches to focus not only towards competitive achievement but  more importantly for holistic development of their team. The program will be available for all coaches from grassroots, youth, senior teams, PE teachers and to Indian football stakeholders.

Conducted over 75 minutes every day and spread over a 3-day schedule, the Heartful Coach Program introduces football coaches into the experiential heartfulness practices of relaxation, meditation and rejuvenation to understand how these can be meaningfully incorporated in their everyday lives.

Standard practice of heartfulness techniques helps to build awareness and how professionals should perceive their growth. This will add a heartful touch to several facets of their training style e.g. communication, leadership, resilience, building confidence, inspiring students, handling stress and evolving as inspirational role models for the players they tutor. 

The first session (a three-day program) will see AIFC core team members, elite coaches, coach educators etc. attending the event. They plan to further roll out the program for coaches nationwide. Participants are entitled to simple heartfulness practices booklet and other reading resources, free heartfulness magazine subscription, free meditation sessions with 15,000+ trainers worldwide and e-access to all heartfulness webinars and YouTube channels.

Football coaches across age groups are accountable not merely to be a role model for their teams and achieve desired results or winning tournaments but also enabling holistic development (psychological, physical, emotional and character) of their team. Regular practice of this program will bring self-awareness amongst the practitioners and how to meaningfully integrate them in real life.
