New Life Football Academy
Motivational School of Life & New Life Football Academy
Motivational School of Life is a registered charity in Ghana which helps underprivileged children reach their potential through Education, Football Coaching and Character Development.
New Life Football Academy; the football arm of the charity is where talents are nurtured and potentially transformed into careers.To date, there are 16 boys on the program. The team is registered with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and plays in the League 2 (2ND Division).
Our goal is to ensure that every athlete receives a form of transformation from entry through to the time of exiting the academy.
The current education program focuses on High School English, Maths, Science and French. Based on the age range of the athletes, the education program is tailored toward equipping the athletes to seat exams for IGCSE, SAT or its equivalent. The idea extends to potential opportunities that might be available to them receiving scholarships in the UK and US to further their education.
We are in the process of establishing High School and College contacts in the US which might be interested in giving scholarships to the boys if they meet the requirements. The school provides accommodation and feeding programme at no cost to the athletes.
Our Football Program
The football Coaching Program is designed to challenge athletes for the greater tasks ahead.
They follow and train on programs designed and coached by licensed coaches qualified in UEFA license. They are by far developed in their abilities than most of their counterparts in other clubs. Hence, they are ready to meet any task ahead in the future.
At the foundation, we believe Good Attitude through character development is paramount, and thus a key to an athletes' success in the future in all aspects. We train and educate the boys in basic moral values, positive thinking, hard work and respect among others. This is taught both on and off the field of play so that the boys live and grow knowing what challenges lay ahead of them and how they can cope in such challenges.
