Football At Terra Nova
Terra Nova Football Academy
The Terra Nova Football Academy began in 2010, teaching children in the Bunga neighborhood of Kampala, Uganda between five and 18 years old how to play soccer.
Since the start, TNFA has taught more than 300 children, between 30 and 40 of whom are still connected to the program.
This past holiday session the academy had 56 participants, the largest season so far.
All of the academy players are taught by Coach Abdul and his two junior coaches.
More than 60 youth have earned soccer scholarships to private schools in Kampala.
Terra Nova Football Club
As players began to age out of the academy, we started a team in Uganda's club league.
The team has a roster of 35 players; 25 licensed to play each season, and ten reserves.
Terra Nova started in 2015, in the fifth division of Uganda's club football league. The Lightning finished the season ranked #1 and was promoted to the fourth division where we are competing today.
