Our goal is to provide structured training, nutrition, healthcare, and educational development for gifted athletes and community youth.

We started this program approximately 1 1/2 years ago. Luis Perea ex national and world cup player for Columbia    in two world cups, attended our selection process which was held in the Parish of Trelawny in Jamaica. We selected 36 children for the academy and since then have grown to over 50 children. During this time our director of coaching Cassman Williams ex Jamaica national player has been supervising and having steady practices for the children. Our summer camp in August of 2014 was very successful, and held at the Eletson Wakeland youth center, in the city of Falmouth, Trelawny. In July of 2015 we brought 17 of the children to the United States where they were treated to games and excursions an visited the University of South Florida in the city of Tampa, and then participated in a tournament in Kissimmee, Florida. We are very happy with our progress as we move towards helping these children and developing football in Jamaica.
