SFI Grassroots Program
Our Grassroots Program is truly international. Because of our many years of history with the Taipei European School, we have young players from many different countries, including England, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Wales, Belgium, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, USA, Canada, Malaysia and of course players from Taiwan.
Football has evolved in Taiwan over the last 20 years and so did Saturday Football International.
History: Saturday Football started 20 years ago with only a few Taipei European School (TES) students. In the early days, there weren’t any youth football teams in Taiwan. Saturday Football was a fun “picnic” on Saturdays. There weren’t any tournaments or competing teams in Taipei at the time.
SFI’s mission is to support educational advancement in the local community. We encourage the development of an improved standard of physical fitness.
Our aim with the SFI Grassroots Program is to help training the new generation of football players in Taiwan.
Our goal is to create an environment in which kids can learn more about sports.
We will teach them sportsmanship, as well as fair and generous behavior.
They will learn the technical, tactical and analytical aspects of football. We want to create an environment in which our players can realize their full potential.
