The German School Football Centre 

The under 7 to under 11

The Centre was founded in January 2013 in order to offer quality training and competitive matches on Saturdays to those students who want to play football beyond the level of an extra-curricular activity.  Following the School’s policy of social and cultural integration, the “Centre” also invites the Kenyan neighbourhood for membership.  Its objectives are:

· Offer children age 6 to 19 a safe and healthy occupation on Saturdays.

· Detect and foster football talent through quality training and regular matches.

· Narrow the gap between the different segments of the society in Nairobi.

· Make the German School known as a centre of academic excellence and diversity.

The GSFC looks back to a successful development over the past 5 years.  On paper, the Centre has now 130 members and on average 110 children in the age groups “Under”7, U9, U11, U13, U15, U17, and U19 attend training on Saturdays.  For U13 we also have a girls’ team.  One trainer takes care of a maximum of 10 players to assure good technical quality.  Each team has at least one match per month against schools, clubs, and academies in Nairobi.  The 3 seasons between the main holidays have 3 months each and the membership fee per child and season is 7,000 KSH. 30% of the players come from disadvantaged families in Kiambu, Githongoro, Babandogo, and Kibera.  Their membership is free and we provide them with second hand boots and the bus fare to come to the training.

The GSFC is run on a volunteer basis by a Management Committee of 5 member parents.  All income is invested into the programme. 

Looking back, some special events come to the mind: The annual Mini-World-Cup at the  International School of Kenya, tournaments at home and in other centres, the trip of our U17 and U19 in October 2017 with the new train to Mombasa, where most of them had never been before and where they had matches against the youth of the Premier League club Bandari FC and Nyali Youth Centre, our U17 losing the first one 3:1 and our U19 winning the second one 2:3. 

Kenya has great football talent but it gets lost because clubs in Kenya in general do not have youth departments. Therefore, since May 2017, the GSFC organizes a Nairobi MiniLiga for U15 and U19, which offers 8 teams competitive matches at a good level twice per month and a platform to be seen by professional clubs.  Our teams always occupy one of the first three places.  In December 2016, the Nigerian football legend Sunday Oliseh was in Nairobi and trained some of our coaches.  In May 2018, we participated in a scouting exercise by a football expert from the UK, who was identifying players for college soccer teams in the USA.  The Super League Club KRA shows interest in 2 of our players.
