Community Outreach Program Trust runs soccer club programmes at the different centres. The soccer programme is designed to teach life skills using the game of soccer. Soccer is the game of life to many of the youth COPT comes into contact with.
Soccer appeals to all children, both boys and girls and rises above culture and background. Soccer is the language that the youth understand. The rules and game of soccer are translated into life skills which will help develop young people’s character and give knowledge of skills needed to have positive goal driven future.
‘The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity’. Lewis Grizzard
