Soccer Acceleration Programme (SAP) Organized by Sporting Chance Nigeria
The Roots “Lagos Showcase” is a Bi-Annual Soccer Exhibition/Open Tryout for soccer players within the ages of 13 – 25. Soccer players are given a chance to showcase themselves to Coaches, Scouts and Verified Agents. 18 Players would also be selected to be part of the SCN Foundation Team for a year.
Whilst playing in advocacy and support for sickle cell awareness, players stand a chance of getting their soccer careers to greater levels whilst also understanding the basics of what it takes to survive in the game.
Established in 2015, the SCN Foundation was founded with the aim of building sport stars for the future, whilst also providing them with high quality vocational skills. Nigeria has a huge population and identification of talents at an early age is important. Therefore we cooperate with schools and local communities to fish out prodigies whilst also enable to have an impact in society through our health and social impact programmes.
In Football we scout grassroots clubs and schools for athletes but, of course, only the best young Nigerian athletes and footballers receive scholarships to join the SCN Foundation.
In 2016, the results from our football program were promising, including the fact that a number of our players have been scouted by the FC Bescola, an Academy recently set up by the prestigious Barcelona Football Club in Lagos Nigeria .
We also continue to make an impact in our local communities by regularly organizing crowd pulling 5-Aside Tournaments to raise funds for the Sickle Cell Foundation and also to create awareness about health and social issues in our communities.
