Want to brush up on your football skills? Join OYDC FOOTBALL ACADEMY, a free resource for any budding footballer to get quality coaching from qualified academy coaches.
The Academy was set up in 2010 to provide a strong and effective Youth Program, for the recruitment and development of young footballers within Lusaka province.
Since then, 4 young players have emerged from the Academy to play first-team football for the Zambian under 20 National team, with about 12 players joining many local club sides, an unprecedented achievement in the modern era of Zambian youth football.
In line with the Olympic Youth Development Center’s Charter of Quality, the Academy prepares players of the future for both the national and club teams by means of imparting them with knowledge that will enable them to progress both on and off the field.
Structured coaching, together with an educational and welfare program throughout their time at the Academy, ensures that there is continuity for the players from the ages of 10-22.
