Mityana Soccer Academy in 2010

Mityana Soccer Academy (MISA)’s motto reads in bold “Talent is Wealth and Health”.

Since 2010 when this academy was started with a single old ball, no training cones and a small number of players, there was a beam of hope that progress would be attained.

William “Diego” Galiwango and Tony Mukasa Nsereko are the two co-founders of the Mityana Soccer Academy.

This academy vividly traces its tap roots and recounts the humble beginning having started with 20 children.

“Way back in 2010, we used to have one old ball, a small number of players, no jerseys and no training cones. We could however improvise with the ice cream cans as cones. The playing ground we used to use was a mere compound of someone in Mityana town” Galiwango traces.

Back in the days, the academy activities were conducted by one coach, Tony Mukasa Nsereko.

Today, there are now several coaches as Reagan Lule (in charge of goalkeepers), Diego and Kawuuki.

Over the years, this academy has provided a rich plat form where several players have been scouted, developed and recommended to several schools for bursaries and clubs as well as teams like the Ssingo Ssaza.
