In the morning, we held our final training session for prospective coaches and the group was buzzing with nervous, excited energy. After we finished, we held a ceremony for all of the wonderful participants and announced the four new Darfur United Soccer Academy coaches. Later that afternoon we broke ground on the first Little Ripples in-home education center, and then hustled back to the field for a coaches meeting and opening day of the Darfur United Soccer Academy, Goz Amer. It was a hit!
In the end, we were looking for a cohesive team that would complement each other on and off the field. A balanced group who each bring their own unique strengths to coaching at the Academy, and we found have found just that.
