Each year Ambassadors Football partners with local churches, football clubs and other organisations across Kenya to deliver Football Camps aimed at playing a part in transforming communities.
Football Camps provide the opportunity to work with developing footballers (usually 7-14 year olds), by giving them the chance to play and compete in a fun, safe and positive environment. This is achieved by developing techniques and skills through:
– Technical Sessions
– Small-sided Games
Central to this development is an emphasis on enjoyment and fun, while demonstrating core sports ethics of fair play and sportsmanship.
Here are a few comments from some parents:
“Thank you so much for your excellent soccer camp. Our kids had a great week”
“My son had a wonderful time at the camp. He wasn’t too excited about the camp when we first told him but he has since become an ardent soccer player (Lord, protect our windows!). I especially liked the Bible component which helps the children remember that God is a part of every aspect of their lives! To all of you who put the camp together, thank you so much, we definitely would like to be a part of this next year.”
The other aspect of our Football Camps is being able to demonstrate a healthy role model through our TREC qualified coaches to those involved. This provides us with the opportunity to highlight and develop core life skills, through coaching and teaching sessions from the Bible. Covered topics include:
– Losing & Winning
– Putting Others First
– Being a Role Model
“The coaches were fantastic – we were so glad for their excellent skill-development type coaching as well as their faith and genuine and professional care for the kids/students. I spoke with other teacher/parents who were also impressed with the same.” – Parent from Ambassadors Football Camp at Rosslyn Academy in 2013
Partnerships with local churches and schools are integral to the success of Football Camp. Children who respond to the Gospel during a Football Camp are able to benefit from the love and support of the local church, enabling them to grow in their faith. We believe that as transformation occurs in the individual, it will have a ripple effect on those within their circle of influence and to the wider community. Churches have also seen long-lasting meaningful contact with new families as a result of running a Football Camps in their community.
