The PIFA Skills contest held at the Cooperage football ground on 30 September 2006 was attended by 368 children between 7-16 yrs. came from all over Mumbai

This contest was organised by PIFA and the entry was free of cost. It is aimed at identifying young talent especially from the less privileged. PIFA believes that the drive and determination to succeed in football will be found in these children and it is for us to nurture, guide and train them in the right method.

The format of the contest was similar to that organised by the Bobby Charlton Soccer & Sports Academy in Manchester. The children had to complete 4 tests before qualifying for the final test.

The four elements of the game were tested – shooting, dribbling, passing & ball control. The tests had a very transparent scoring system and children progressed into the next test on achieving marks above the cut-off scores. 120 pts after 2 tests, 500pts after 3 tests and 600pts after 4 tests. Only 8 finalists qualified for the final round.

The final 8 contestants had to do the Lofted pass (Beckham’s speciality) and the top scorers came from the U-14 group. Tejas Raut of Magic Bus (NGO) with 770pts & Hussein Vahanvaty form St Mary’s ICSE with 760 points.

All 8 finalists were presented with a NIKE Cap & Manchester United Football.

The top 2 winners will attend the PIFA- BCSSA football camp to be held on 15 October in Mumbai. They also won a full football kit form NIKE compromising of 2 uniforms, stockings, shoes, ball, cap & shin guard.

PIFA’s success story Kean Lewis was also felicitated for his achievements. He represented India at the BCSSA Worlds Skills final, invited to Leicester City FC for trials, became the youngest player in the MFL Senior Division playing for PIFA Colaba Youngstar FC and scored 2 goals for Maharasthra U-15 team that beat Goa after many years. He was presented with a coaching session at the PIFA – BCSSA camp in PUNE and also given a goodie bag from NIKE.

The audience also won lots of goodies from NIKE who interacted with them through EKIN, a NIKE program to help understand the importance of wearing the correct gear for the sport.
