Brennan speaking to the students midway through the camp on the importance of staying healthy.

Brennan Hyler, a soccer player for the University of Florida, volunteer with Hoops Care International for three weeks. His time was spent not only running educational mentoring for students of our partner schools, but he also started the “Education through Soccer”  program to enable youth whom are not in school but love soccer to be able to read and write.

With such expertise, HCI decided to use his wealth  coaching knowledge to encourage more youth to participate in the game of football. It was then decided that HCI should organize this spccer camp which will not only encourage education through soccer but to also start up a rivalry for private schools in the Cape Coast Metropolis.

Over eighty students, boys and girls took part in this one day camp from selected schools in Cape Coast which included, Golden Treasures, George Ekem Ferguson, Morning Star, Futures Academy and Philip Quaque Girls School. They went through soccer drill training after which a short tournament was hosted which was won by George Ekem Ferguson.

The students were all presented with certificates of participation at their school infront of the student body.

Most of the participants express joy in being a part of the camp and ask that such be repeated frequently.

This camp was made possible through collaboration with Play Soccer Ghana in Cape Coast.
