Hello Family & Friends,
We are launching our 2020 campaign to continue on with Champions mission and increasing the amount of youth we can impact this year through our Summer Camp and clinics. In addition to the camp being held this July, we have also implemented a new campaign "One Love One Ball". This kicked off in December 2019. Champions was able to secure new and gently used balls from Atlanta clubs and then distribute them to several youth and school programs in high risk communities throughout Kingston Jamaica.
Your support has enabled us to continue our mission positively impacting the youth of Jamaica. Our hope is that you continue to partner with us and help by sponsoring a child for $25.00 again this year.
Again, we thank you for your support and hope that you'll help us in making 2020 bigger and better for the youth. Please see the links below for donations for 2020 and updates of our continued community service.

Our One Love One Ball campaign kicked off in December 2019. Summer program participants were gifted a ball in an effort to encourage them to play year round along with promoting our ongoing initiative of charitable works within communities in Kingston Jamaica. Presentations of balls occurred at Haile Selassie High, Tavares Basic School, Tavares Primary School, and Peartree Grove Primary.
We are thrilled with the success of this years camp! We were able to provide an exciting experience to over 65 children in the Payne Land community. We would like to thank everyone that contributed to the sponsor a child campaign enabling us to continue on fulfilling our mission. There is nothing more heartwarming than to be able to put smiles on the children's faces and know that you are making a difference. Again, thank you all and we hope you continue to support us in our future camps.
Inter Atlanta FC partners with Champions Football to provide football equipment to Peartree Grove Primary School. The presentation was given during the Class of 2019 Graduation ceremony.
Our Director of Programs, Brian Stoddart, was interviewed live on Roots FM Jamaica Saturday. He was able to promote the mission of Champions Football Academy and answer questions about the upcoming camp and how one can become involved. Please listen and learn more details of who we are and the goals we have set for our club.
Champions Football Academy would like to increase the knowledge on benefits of healthy living through plant based diets to promote healthy eating and physical exercise. Research has shown a correlation between healthy eating and exercise to improved student behavior and academic performance.
In an effort to support our mission, we have outsourced a chef specializing in plant based meals to lead our food services program. Our athletes will be provided plant based breakfast and lunch to teach them a more nutritionally balanced way of nourishment. Children are constantly learning lifelong habits, therefore, our camp strives to provide our athletes with a framework for healthy lifestyles. Implementing education on plant based diets and providing vegan meals for our campers reinforces the benefits that can lead to optimal health and improved academic and athletic performance.
July 8th, 2019 is right around the corner, with that being said, we would like to give a HUGE thank you to our latest Tier 3 sponsor and Tier 4 sponsors. These recent pledges have pushed our club closer to our fundraising goal. With just over one month to go, we hope to surpass our targeted goal to ensure the camp is a success and the children have a memorable experience. Every $ helps and is greatly appreciated!!
