About Us

About YAFA

We are a Football Club / Academy based in Maitama, Abuja. We find and develop football talents for boys and girls in the age categories of 4-10, 10-15 and 16-22 yrs.

Our programs are carefully designed to meet the needs of all types of players. Additionally, we go into schools to help develop talent there and take one on one coaching for interested individuals.

Starting at the youngest level, we focus on developing the foundational skills of football which include dribbling, ball control, kicking, shooting and passing. Each skill is taught using a variety of methods and as the player refines their skill, the challenge levels are increased.

We also have the Youth Arise FC which participates yearly in the FCT Football League as well as the Federation Cup. We graduate our players from the Youth Arise Football Academy to the Youth Arise Football Club when they are ready.

Our Mission

Our mission is to use football to create an equal and inclusive society in which young people from both low income and rich backgrounds have the opportunity to develop their skills, attitude and character to succeed in a professional football career, education, work and public life. We also work to increase female participation in football.
