In line with Olympism and the values of the IOC, the facility acts as an operation Centre for the National Olympic Academy (NOA) projects through which Olympic education and sport for social change is being delivered. Currently more than 500 children each week engage in sessions on Olympic education from the Centre and more than 5000 athletes have benefited from the programme. It is envisaged that forging a strong partnership between the NOA and NGOs will ensure that the power of sport contributes to positive live changes.

About OYDC

The Olympic Youth Development Centre (OYDC) was established to provide sport and community development opportunities for young people and under-served segments of the population from the surrounding communities. It is based on beliefs and experiences that sport and its related facets, when harnessed well in an enabling environment, has the power to bring hope and development. A high quality sport environment provides, motivates and breeds high quality athletes and sports leaders

Sports Programmes

Since the launch of OYDC, about 600 children and youth on a daily basis participate in various sport activities. To achieve this, the Centre works in collaboration with sixteen NFs some of whom have provided coaches in football, netball, tennis, table tennis, volleyball, basketball, boxing, athletics, judo, taekwondo, hockey, handball, badminton, weightlifting, swimming and chess. The coaches are all based at the Centre where they plan and manage their respective sport and conduct their day to day activities for athletes.
