  • Encuentro Internacional de Educatión Física

    August 7, 2016.  This past week CAC Chief Executive Brian Suskiewicz was a key presenter and speaker at the Encuentro Internacional de Educatión Física in Lima, Peru hosted by the Ministry of Education. This international meeting is a space for exchange of experiences, ideas, practical implementation, and strengthening teaching practices. CAC was invited to present at this prestigious conference based on our partnerships and relationships within Peru with numerous groups such as UNICEF, various ministries, and other strong NGO implementing partners. One of our member partners, Fútbol Más, also presented their curriculum and methodology at the conference.

    Attended by over 2,000 practitioners, teachers, coaches, and pedagogical members of the Ministry of Education and other government officials, the international conference will launch the new National Curriculum and aim to strengthen physical education and school sports across all levels of Basic Education (preschool, primary, and secondary). Registration for the conference exceeded 8,000 people, but space limited the attendees to only 2,000 individuals. The Ministry of Education live streamed the event for more inclusion. Presenters included experts in all fields of physical education from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Peru, and Spain, Chile.

    During the conference Brian was interviewed by TV Peru (national television) and ANDINA, a news agency owned by the Peruvian government. On Thursday, newly sworn-in Peruvian president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski was shown on morning television with his cabinet exercising, sparking an interest in the physical education conference.

    CAC’s methodology and curriculum has been well received and adopted by various government ministries, community partners, and NGOs during our year-round partnerships in the past several years. This presentation will further enhance this exchange of ideas and practices as well as strengthen our relationship with various Peruvian agencies that wish to create pathways for social change through sport.

  • 9 Times with Chevrolet FC

    June 17, 2016. Nine times. With respect to the classic line from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Nine is now the number of life-altering pitches that Chevrolet FC has built in communities around the world, helping disadvantaged children to grow both socially and emotionally. Coaches Across Continents award-winning partnership with Chevrolet FC just unveiled the latest community pitch, this time in Incheon, South Korea.  Despite the threat of rain, the weather held out allowing for dignitaries, Chevrolet Korea, CAC, and special guest and Manchester United legend Gary Bailey have full ceremonies and turn the pitch over to the Borame center and ChildFund Korea.

    This is a group that works, counsels, and houses children who have been abused, generally physically or emotionally. The power of play is now just outside their center, allowing for children to learn from our unique curriculum that is designed to educate children on issues such as Child Rights, Health & Wellness, and Conflict Prevention. As they play there children will grow both emotionally and socially.

    Coaches Across Continents is proud to work with community changing initiatives with Chevrolet FC, and this one is especially rewarding because of the recipients who will benefit the most from this sustainable initiative.
