Football & Sports Coaching Project

The aim of our football coaching project is to provide opportunities for those who excel at the sport or simply need a healthy focus. Football is a part of every child’s life in Ghana, one way or another, and the aim of the project is to take this and use it to the child’s advantage.

What will I be doing?

You will be working with our dedicated coaches to inspire the next generation, bring new ideas and drills to the pitch and provide a fresh approach to their training. Below is a list of the squads we run on project:

You can also participate in coaching for other sports such as boxing, tennis, rugby, hockey, PE and basketball.
