Break the silence campaign

27th Dec 2008 marked a great occasion for Game On! Youth sports affiliated teams as they all participated in “Break the Silence” campaign football tournament. A total of 20 under 14 teams gathered at Makongeni sports grounds with higher expectations of having fun, learning life skills and playing the game of football.

Before the start of the game, teams were taken through some life skills teachings from their coaches and volunteers who were in attendance. The tournament atmosphere was quite exciting as all the participating youth had a lot of fun and everyone had a chance to play in the game.

A total of 20 Game On! Youth sports trained coaches were at hand to make sure that every kid had a chance to play and learn the basic life skills. The tournament was played on a knock-out basis that saw Kinyago youth and Masa sports getting into the finals and Kinyago emerging victorious by 2-1.The winning goals for Kinyago were scored in the second half by Andrew Kimani with Masa getting theirs through John Mwanza.

The guest of honor during the tournament was Mr.James Wanjala a former national soccer team captain. He congratulated the participants for taking their time to show case their soccer skills and life skills that is more important in anyone’s life. Mr Wanjala said “I would also like to thank the Game On! Youth sports project for its commendable job of giving out an opportunity to young kids to develop their skills and moreover the life skills education towards their whole life. The Game On! Youth sports trained coaches are a good example of the youth coaches that any sporting society would ever dream to have”

We at Game On! Youth Sports project would like to THANK our partners through Global Giving for supporting and assisting us to make all this to happen. It’s our goal to train more coaches on Game On! Skills and providing all sports opportunities to hundreds and thousands of children and this can only happen through your generous support..
