Building on the success of the Academy’s talent development model for boys – combining the development of football talent, education and character – we have established Africa’s first residential Academy Programme for girls.
There are currently 16 West African girls on full scholarships at RtD.
Beyond the Academy, the majority of our female graduates will go on to secure student-athlete scholarships at leading private schools, colleges and universities in the USA. A smaller number of our female graduates will take the opportunity to pursue a professional career in football within Europe.
The Academy will also become a key provider of girls for the national football teams in the future.
