in agfacademy •  4 months ago

A few weeks ago, we introduced the Andre Gray Football Academy; the only football academy that leverages on the STEEM blockchain to deliver formal football training experience to talented young people all over the world, especially in the third-world countries.


Andre Gray is a professional English Premier League footballer and he currently plays for Watford FC. He has a passion for helping young players. This passion is what translated into the first decentralized football coaching academy that leverages on blockchain technology.

Andre Gray’s football coaching academy is the first in the world to use cryptocurrency (STEEM) to reward young people for playing the beautiful game of football.


Nothing is as frustrating as a talent lacking expression. One of the most popular sports with the most number of unharvested potentials is football (soccer). Andre Gray has taken the first step in the right direction using by implementing the only blockchain that can make this possible; the STEEM Blockchain.


Most of these young talented footballers due to financial limitations and constraints are not able to access formal football training facilities. However, with the aid of a decentralized application that leverages on the STEEM blockchain, Andre Gray football academy is able to deliver both the training and funds necessary to groom these young talents without the interference any third-party.


This is the vision of the academy written in Andre’s very own words;

I want to support young people all over the world to play and enjoy football just like I did while I was growing up. By using Steem, I can now do that by providing some money which could help you to buy some of your kit or make it easier to enjoy playing football.

The testimonials since the launch of the academy have been massive and the entire project just unwrapped with the launching of the new Andre Gray Football Academy website.


Drill #1

The in-step pass:


This pass is carried out by locking your ankle and then hitting the ball towards a wall in a training situation or towards your teammate in a real match situation. It is one of the basic skills in professional football and it is definitely a good place to start. Unfortunately, many young players use this skill without really knowing the actual name or its proper application. However, Andre Gray is finally here to point these young talents in the right direction.


Andre Gray will deliver the most important components of formal football training to talented and passionate players of football all over the world using the STEEM blockchain.

All you need to do to get involved;

  1. Visit AGFacademy
  2. Watch the first drills & skills video uploaded by Andre.
  3. Practice the drill.
  4. And then record a video of yourself performing the drill.
  5. Upload the video to either YouTube or DTube.
  6. Visit the AGFacademy website again, log into the portal, and paste your video link. You can also use the portal to add text and other images to your post. You can also include a personal thank you message for Andre to read.
  7. Ensure that you use the #agfacademy in order to qualify for upvotes from Andre.

You can also assist in increasing the number of beneficiaries by sharing the post on your social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others.


This is a hint to what an excellent AGFA video should look like;

  3. Open by stating that you are doing this for AGFacademy and close by thanking Andre personally.
  4. Record a footage of yourself doing the drills in the instruction video (best if you get a friend to handle the camera for you).
