Arcadia Shepards


Hi there , My names are Epah Gyavira.I am a Cameroonian by nationality and I am 42 years. I am football fanatic and this can be seen from my experience in the game of football. In Cameroon, i played for a good number of clubs and national tournaments. My football career in Cameroon has a lot of positive impact on my life. Due to my talent, I decided to travel to South Africa where I could show case my talent in the game of football. I played for many clubs in South Africa most remarkable is the ARCADIA SHEPARDS F.C. We emerged Champions of the VODACOM League in 2003-2004. I also did coaching management because of the love that I had for soccer. My career in South Africa has a remarkable legacy in my life. While in South Africa, i traveled to Japan for a test match but unfortunately, I was questioned for failure to renew my passport. Consequently, I was sent to Cameroon. The story is really a sad one. All what I had worked for in South Africa perished. Back in Cameroon, i did not give up my passion for soccer. I joined a few soccer clubs but it was always difficult to make it to the top. My soccer career in the pitch diminished but i still have the passion for soccer. Because of my Charisma and Talent, i was appointed coach of the Little Foot F.C ,Tiko D2. My coaching career with this club was poor because it was very difficult to transform the barbaric and uncultured talent of these African Children. Arcadia Shepards Soccer Academy provides outreach to at-risk and homeless youth in our community and promotes a healthy lifestyle. Our Program promotes discipline, goal setting, and team building. Our Principles: To build character and self-esteem To foster respect To encourage healthy lifestyles that include physical activity and healthy eating To grow a sense of community The Academy is just 1 year 5 months old. I have a total of 60 girls and 160 boys ages ranging from 5-19. I want to use this soccer academy to eradicate the high level of illiteracy. Through this mission, I will pass on Hope and a brighter future to the underprivileged. I am mailing you today is to beg on behalf of this young academy, my community which has no football club right now, and Cameroon in general to help us Soccer equipments.
