The program was jointly sponsored with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees.
Over a three-day period, which ended on Monday, more than two dozen Palestinian teachers from the West Bank and Gaza Strip were trained as coaches at UNRWA schools, at the Qalandiyah Training Center.
Since the program's launch in 2011, nearly 1,200 Palestinian children have participated in the training and activities of the football academies, an UNRWA statement says.
