Just Play is all about using sport as a development tool, in this case football, and Sope says while learning new skills is important

Constantly updating and adapting to the environment and culture has contributed to the success of the Oceania Football Confederation’s Just Play Programme.
As part of that process the OFC Social Responsibility Department is introducing a new 34-session programme.
The new programme is currently being shared with the Just Play Project Managers and top instructors from around the region at the three-day Just Play Instructors Course in Auckland, New Zealand.
The four key messages – awareness of non-communicable diseases, gender equality, children with a disability inclusion and child protection – remain the focus alongside the promotion of fun physical activity.
Just Play programme technical co-ordinator EmmieSope says coming up with the new content has been a long process, and it’s exciting to finally see that work come to fruition.
“The first overview started in 2012 and we got input from the Just Play Project Managers and Instructors,” Sope says of the development process.
“We trialled the delivery of social messages through capacity building workshops and found that further development was required.
Working closely with our partners, the Australian Government, through the Australian Sports Commission, Football Federation Australia, UEFA and UNICEF, to get their input on the social messages we were able to further refine the content.”
