The Academy is coached by Jack Murray and Joe Wairegi. Both Jack and Joe play for the local team, Waithaka United. As an Academy we train 5 days-a-week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays). Sessions normally last between 1.5 to 2 hours however on many occasions we continue long into the afternoon. The initial three age groups of the Academy are Under 10’s, Under 14’s and U.17’s. The Agape Football Academy is provided for talented individuals who can show their ability and passion to perform as an individual player but also building relationships within their team. The project promotes getting children off the streets and engaged in team sports that develop team-work, creative flair and confidence. Children that show potential talent will be coached to make most of their talents, giving them an opportunity to succeed as an individual. Training sessions consist of fitness drills, football skill based tasks, teamwork drills and game situations. The three age groups play matches against other local team and participate in local tournaments.
