Current FC Africa Students have said:
“It’s an opportunity of a lifetime and you gain a new experience.  The coaches are really helpful.  If you need anything you can just ask them.” – Sarah, 17 from Bestwood

“It’s really enjoyable and I learnt a lot of new things about coaching that are really interesting from working in the coaching environment. I learnt a lot about how to teach kids and interact with them, that they need a range of activities to keep them interested.” – Joe, 18 from Stapleford
