Wuxi has become the first city in Jiangsu province to create a standardized soccer curriculum for every public high, middle and primary school in the city.

The city has also released a set of standard textbooks featuring 3-D cartoons demonstrating key dribbling and passing skills and tactical drills.

Soccer coaches from 105 different schools in Wuxi took part in a training session on Aug 27, where they were introduced to the new textbook and given advice on how to put it to best use by local officials.

The textbooks are set to make their debuts in classrooms across Wuxi when the new school semester begins in September. Editor:Hiram
