Greensprings / Kanu Football Camp (GKFC)

We are delighted to host the annual Greensprings / Kanu Football Camp (GKFC), scheduled for 3 – 8 April, 2017. GKFC was establish in 2012 to enable children between the ages of 5 and 17 years to learn football skills from the Dutch Football Association and English Premier League coaches, with the support of Lagos State Football Association. GKFC presents a lifetime opportunity where young boys and girls can develop the foundation skills required to become great footballers.

Football remains an integral part of our social lives, helping children breakout of their cocoon, by expressing their talents through the game and equipping them with skills to deal with complex situations.

Football has had a positive impact on the Nigerian economy, as we have continuously witnessed “grass to grace” stories from our Nigerian international football stars playing in top premier leagues around the world and sending money back home to support their families, relatives and friends.

To this end, this year’s camp programme has been modified to ensure that it is even more impactful. Participants will be engaged in a range of activities such as team games, inspirational movie nights and emotional intelligent training etc., with a focus on mental and emotional development, while creating a spring board for future exploits.
