After meandering through a few technical glitches, we were finally able to run our first classroom session, with Victor Satei and the Apex Football philosophy leading the way. Check out more here.

Our first stop in Gulu, northern Uganda was at the local government offices and a meeting with the District Speaker, Peter Okello. There’s growing momentum for Gulu United in the region and what we started in September of last year is already growing well beyond the city centre.

Tomorrow I will be departing to Africa, as I link up with my friend Adrian Bradbury to help him with his project to develop the Gulu United Football Club. Adrian has spent the last number of years working hard to build awareness and raising funds in support of the Northern Region of Uganda which has been recovering from the long lasting effects of war. By working with Gulu United Football Club, the goal of the project will be to help revive the beautiful game, starting with youth, as we work to not only build their soccer skills, but also help in building their confidence, character, leadership and providing them with an environment to become great men.
This will be my first time to Africa and I am eagerly looking forward to it. I will try to keep you up to date with photos, videos and day to day experiences. I am happy to have our company, Apex IFC, provide coaching, coach education and guidance to the members of Gulu United and hope that our work will have a lasting impact on the youth of Northern Uganda.
