Decentralized Football Academy is proud to present, our new team coach!
The past three months have been an amazing experience and transformation for each and every one of us involved with this project. There have been challenges along the way, a few members even left, but we did not let this bring down our spirits, oh no, we are motivated, and we have only just begun this amazing journey!
The team players are very excited, and they should be, for their hard work is paying off. Improvement in their skills and physical fitness can be observed every single day, video after video of vigorous practice routines. We decided, that although this is really great, it’s time to raise the bar a bit, so we tirelessly searched for the perfect coach, and we are proud to say, we have found him!
We are proud to now present, our welcoming video: The new coach for Decentralized Football Academy!
You guys may be wondering about a new face in our midst! yeah, We’re gathered here today so that I may introduce him to the team.
As you all know, this is a charitable football academy, an academy where we collect no penny from you, and only focus on achieving your dreams as a footballer. Some of you just joined, kudos to those who have been part of the journey since the onset, it shows you believe in DFA's vision. While some had left thinking this is shit, I say: “Facebook was once shit to some people, and who would have invested in Google right after it was created in 1996?” If you aim at the stars, at least you will hit the moon for sure.
By focusing on DFA, you're making your passion your purpose, and that's one of the best things to do in life. A wise person once said "The tragedy of life is not death but what we let die inside us while we are alive". If you die without giving your passion a life, it will come to you right after death and say to you: “We came to you to give us life but you didn't, you're a total failure and now we will go to another person to give us life.” i.e If Bill Gate didn't create Microsoft, someone else would have created it.
You have to make your passion your purpose and have a burning desire about it. Also, maintain and stay with your environment because if you take a fish out of the water, give it the best mansion in the world, and all money in the world, one thing will still happen. Do you know what will happen? It will die. Andre Gray, Christiano Ronaldo, Messi, and John Obi Mikel understood and followed this principle and that is why it's easy for them to do what they do for fame, for money, for their followers and millions of people, but you were not there when they were rehearsing and practicing tirelessly. Your self-actualization, concentration, and will power will influence your success.
Myself and my colleagues are sacrificing our time, money, and effort, not because we don't have a busy schedule, but because life is more than paying bills and having billions of Naira, and like I say: “No-one is going to stand on your burial ceremony and say he had expensive shoes, or houses, but they will remember what you did for them.” I believe in altruism; If Napoleon could spend 25 years to study the riches and influenced more people to success than anyone in history, then I think it’s appropriate to say: “Anything is achievable with enough hard work and determination.” In the words of Robert Kiyosaki "When you need something, give it out and it will come back to you in multiples, there is never an extra." Pablo Picasso also said "The meaning of life is to find your gift and the purpose of life is to give it away."
With that being said to motivate you guys on your passion/dreams. ^^^
Much of our appreciation goes to Oracle-D, @Oracle-D is the platform behind this initiative, if not for Oracle-D this wouldn't be possible (Everything happens for a reason). Big thanks to the starters; Matt and Dylan and the team members. Shout out to our role model Andre Gray (@andregray) for his support, words of encouragement, and AGFacademy, as well as our Steem supporters. We appreciate you all!
We've started DFA three months ago, and we've worked on many drills, trained hard, and right now we need to improve drastically in our games, which is the reason we now have a new coach. We will be getting new footballs, cones, and pipes in one week’s time to improve your training activities. Some people left the team because the gear (jerseys, boots...) that are promised for the team but not yet ready. They have forgotten that there are decades when nothing happens and there are days when decades happen. One of the softwares people excel at is Microsoft Office and that's not the Power-Point, Jerseys and boots will be ready soon as long as we continue working hard.
I want you all to welcome the new head coach to Decentralized Football Academy.
I want everyone to say a big thanks to @Oracle-D and Andre Gray.
So now that we’ve presented the new coach, we’re sure you are probably wondering the skillset this new coach has to offer the team. Of course! We have it covered. Here is a short video for our audience to view, which displays the level of talent the new coach possesses.
Talent was not the only thing we considered in this search. No, we wanted someone who could bring even more to the table. We wanted a coach who can guide our youthful players, in a manner which is easy for them to understand, and fun! So we’ve prepared some videos of the new coach working with the team members of DFA, and we our proud to say, he is very good at what he does. Please have a look for yourself!
Words cannot express how excited we are with the current direction of DFA. We set out to achieve a goal, and we feel we are well on the path of achieving our goals.
None of this would be possible without hard work, and outside support from Oracle-D, Andre Gray Football Academy, and the Steem community members. We hope that our hard work exemplifies just how grateful we are! Thank you so much guys, this has been amazing so far!
So what plans have we set forth for the future of DFA?
Here is a list of what we plan to obtain in the near future with current funding from our supporters.
New cones for maneuver based practice.
New pipes for maneuver based practice.
New footballs for the team.
Protein based nutrition/Protein bars.
New Jerseys/body gear.
We feel it’s important to keep everyone updated with our plans, so this list is arranged according to current priority. Jerseys will likely be one of our largest expenditures for the team, and although we would like to get jerseys as soon as we can, we are focusing on what we need for the team to grow and operate efficiently, so we feel it’s important to cover some of the more basic needs right now, as this will be easier to cover with our current supports.
The organizers of DFA are currently discussing some ideas for the future. There are still some mechanics to discuss and prepare for, so we do not want to list anything we are not concrete with just yet, but we will say this: We have plenty of ideas in the works that we are currently exploring, and we’re sure some of them will blossom into reality.
DFA has only just begun this journey, and we’re very grateful to all of you, for helping make this a reality. We will continue to drill, we will continue to post, we will continue to be transparent with our plans, and we will continue to guide our youth on the core principles of hard work, dedication, unity, and gratitude, for they are the future, and it’s up to us to help them mold it in a way, which makes the world a better place for us all.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you all for the amazing support, and being present for our journey.
