“Our mission at American Football Development Academy is to help develop the sport of American football across the globe and help young athletes better their future. We plan on creating camps and clinics to help educate coaches and players about the sport and give them a good understanding of the fundamentals of the game. We are actively involved in the local communities year round giving the local coaches help with developing in season and off season training programs. AFDA is also actively helping players to who have the academic goals of attending University at home or abroad. American football is a very unique sport in its ability to build a great work ethic and character through teamwork and overcoming adversity. Through the development of American Football in countries like Nigeria we hope to promote a healthy lifestyle and a focus on education throughout the youth of the country. The greater support the AFDA receives the greater amount of young student athletes we can reach and help achieve their dreams of bettering their education and future. Coaches who would like to volunteer to help AFDA are encouraged to do so. Right now we are unable to help pay for coaches airfare to our camps but that is a goal for us in the future.
