Last month, the long-awaited follow-up in our Youth Enrichment Football League (Y.E.F.L) Series kicked off under the vibrant sun at GPS Field in Kumba Town, made possible from the support of Rotary International.
Like its predecessor, the Holiday Tournament teaches life skills while simultaneously hosting soccer action. Our youth worked with one life skill for each round, focusing on self-respect, a hard-working attitude, and self-confidence, respectively. The games themselves are worth ten points each; points are awarded for starting on time, sportsmanship, the coach’s leadership winning the game, and the life skills activities.
The Championship match (full recap from the Kumba office coming soon) was a thrilling competition which saw CFDP new-comer in 2013, Kawarah FC taking the Cup! More details on their road to victory will come in next week’s newsletter.  However, it’s important to note the Youth Enrichment Football League Series will not stop here, or even in Kumba for that matter. The next session begins in February and preliminary plans for summer include potential expansion to new cities – based on popular demand!
