Coaches Across Continents

Coaches Across Continents enables communities to create lasting social change through sport. [...]

How We're Making a Difference

Coaches Across Continents Founder and Executive Director Nick Gates and his fellow board member Christian Aviza recently completed a 4,400-mile journey to visit some of their partner communities in South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia and Botswana ... and the One World Futbol was with them every step of the way.

Christian notes, “We introduced the ball to our partners and the children in our programs, and the response was excellent. And for a bit of fun, we took the ball with us when we were with the great white sharks in Gansbaai. We used it on our sponsored juggle on the dunes in Namibia and at the top of Table Mountain. The ball really is indestructible.”

Coaches Across Continents has chosen the ultra-durable One World Futbol as the official ball for all its programs in at least 26 countries in 2015.

In 2014, Coaches Across Continents worked with 280,396 children and 3,157 teachers in developing communities in 26 countries. Coaches Across Continents is teaching HIV/AIDS prevention, female empowerment and conflict resolution—all through using soccer and soccer-related games on the field. Their award-winning work is based on first-hand research in 65 countries over seven years, during which they developed a unique face-to-face and online educational curriculum that uses soccer games to educate teachers/volunteers and children on health, leadership, life and social skills.

The Coaches Across Continents projects are called "Hat-Trick Initiatives" and take place over three years. In year one, the focus is on educating the local participants in sport for social impact and the CAC curriculum. In year two, partners are expected to be able to adapt the CAC curriculum to address their local social problems. By year three, the local participants have become Self-Directed Learners who can identify local problems, analyze the best way to address them and create new sport for social impact games to use in their community.

In 2014, Coaches Across Continents worked in 26 countries: Brazil, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Israel, Jamaica, Kenya, Liberia, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Peru, Philippines, Qatar, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, the United States, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

One World Play Project is proud to partner with this extraordinarily dedicated and effective organization. We’re working together to get One World Futbols to all Coaches Across Continents program sites around the world and for Nick Gates and his team to provide guidance to us regarding innovative best practices in the field of sport and development.
