The American Football Federation of Uganda (AFFU) has intensified their programs through schools.
This is through the flag version of the game which has virtually less contact.
Some of the schools enrolled include; Yasira Junior School, Kabojja International, Light Academy, Makerere College, Bethany High School, St Peter’s Naalya, Mariam High, Trinity College Nabbingo, Scoris International School, St Kizito High School, Comboni College and St Katherine Girls.
Students are given the basics of American Football with the rules and regulations.
Steven Okeng, the president of the American Football Federation of Uganda (AFFU) asserts that the schools’ program will help in the growth of the sport from the grassroots.
“Flag football has been taken to most schools to help in the development of American Football in Uganda. The students will be equipped with skills about the game” Okeng remarked.
The development comes after the American Football Federation of Uganda (AFAU) held a successful media clinic on Friday, 10th March 2023.
The media clinic was at the American center in Kabalagala, Kampala city presided over by George Cornick, American sports journalist Greg Presto and a local coach Shudi Mpanga.
