'To unearth talented players in our community, we need to address their individual circumstances. This way, we can tailor our program to suit their individual needs. Adolescents thrive in a safe and competitive environment amongst inspirational people and proper mentors.’ - Dumisa Ngqoyiyana (Founder)
DREAM BEYOND LIMITS
We've created an environment where players thrive. Our boys are guided by a community-led approach to help them overcome the environmental challenges that exist in the area, such as crime, gang violence, poverty, and peer pressure. Our deep understanding of the environment, coupled with our local insight and network, gives us an advantage over other football academies in Cape Town. Providing our boys with the tools necessary to overcome these challenges prevents them from wasting their talent while preparing them mentally for a career in professional football, both locally and internationally.
