Anti-racism Education for Saints Academy

The New Saints has become the first Welsh club to confirm an anti racism workshop for their academy players and coaches in a brand new initiative created by Show Racism the Red Card.

The workshop at TNS will take place on Tuesday the 10th of December which is the night before the clubs event with local school children which will be supported by first team players.

The Academy Under 10′s, right through to the Under 13′s age group players as well as the Academy coaches will all be taking part in the anti racism workshop. They will also be educated about racism and how to deal with and report racist incidents.

Players will also discuss terminology and what terms are unacceptable, along with the history behind these terms. Furthermore, players will discuss the importance of their actions on social media websites and the consequences of miss conduct.
