OUR CHILDREN SOCCER ADEDEMY NEWEST STARS IN RIVER STATE PORTHARCOURT

Here is a short but sweet update from one of our partners in India:

The new initiative is our work in prison in the last few months that have been really exciting. Through the help of balls and equipment, we have been able to reach close to 100 in -mates in the last few months.

In a recent session we spoke about the importance of how our language and words describe us and our personality. It was a great session helping the inmates understand value in not talking abusive language. We used a unique game called FootVolley that engaged everyone and helped us teach.

We run two soccer academies. One is in a particular local community and was started 15 years ago. Because of the audience we are able to do lots of leadership training both with the players and parents. Our soccer academies have expanded to seven cities around the country and have approximately 5,000 participants each year. Most age groups meet twice per week in the summer and range between 5-21 years old.

Our other academy is open to everyone. It is in its third summer and currently has close to 100 participants. We combine training with character and value lessons and provide a leadership development training. This academy meets three times per week in the summer (twice per week in the winter). Our goal with this academy is to enter the competitive league later this year with selected players which will increase our scope and influence.

We want to influence whole families and one of our strategies is to organize father/child matches. Most fathers spend the majority of their time out of the home and don’t have strong relationships with their children. These matches (and the father/child camp we run) help foster better relationships.

May of our players tell us they notice a difference in the atmosphere of our academy compared to others they have attended. They recognize we care about them as more than just athletes. One mother told us she thanks God all the time that she found our academy for her daughter because we have been such a good influence on her.

Thank you for helping to resource our academies. You have helped us get closer to our goal of having one ball for every athlete during practice.

Ball Project is grateful for our partners around the world encouraging & impacting families & communities as they help children play.
