Decade of Impacts: 10th Edition of Greensprings Kanu Football Camp Set to Kick Off

We are delighted to announce that preparations have started to mark our decade of grassroots sports development in Nigeria through the Greensprings Kanu Football Camp (GKFC) project. The 10th edition of the camp has been scheduled to take place from Sunday, April 7th, to Friday, April 12th, 2024, at our Lekki Campus.

GKFC has become a hallmark event, and in its previous 9 editions, over 2000 children have been trained and 13 children have been granted full scholarships to study at Greensprings School.

The impacts of the football camp have also been felt at the state and national level. The European coaches we invite have trained over 200 Lagos State coaches, who have gone on to impact the lives of children at the grassroots level; also, 5 alumni of the camp have featured in the Under-17 team of Nigeria at some point, with the recent being the inclusion of Light Eke and Jubril Azeez in the 2023 squad for Under-17 AFCON.

This 10th edition promises to be even more impactful, and it would be a great opportunity for your child to hone his or her skills in various aspects of the game, including dribbling, passing, shooting, ball control, and heading. Additionally, there will be an emphasis on the importance of mental and emotional development, team building, and life skills.

As ever, the European coaches from the Netherlands and representatives from the Lagos State Football Association will be on hand to share their expertise and contribute to the participants’ growth. Former Nigerian footballer Kanu Nwankwo will also grace the occasion, providing motivational talks and inspiring the young talents to reach for new heights in their football journeys.

Your child could be one of the next Most Promising Player(s) of the camp who will be awarded a full scholarship into Greensprings School.
