Club 45 – Football Education Giving Back

In July, South Africans who want to work in the footballing world will have the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business as Club 45 brings psychology and management courses to Mzansi.

Both courses will take place at Wits’ Sports Conference Centre in Johannesburg, with a chunk of all the proceeds going towards funding youth development projects in South Africa.

Leading football psychologist, Dan Abrahams, and Diego Valdes, a vastly experienced sports communication and marketing executive consultant, will be conducting the courses on July 6th-7th and 28th-30th.Club 45

Abrahams, when asked about working in South Africa, said, “”I am very excited to be invited to deliver a football psychology course with Club 45 to some of the leading coaching talents in South Africa. As a passionate sporting country and an emerging football power I know that South African coaches demand new, creative and powerful ideas to help them develop players with a lifelong passion for football as well as the stars of tomorrow.

“I’m honoured and delighted to be chosen as one of Club 45’s global consultants and I am determined to deliver a workshop that changes the way 21st century coaches think about the beautiful game.”

The psychology course will cost R2800, while the management one is priced at R4400.

As previously mentioned, a percentage of the proceeds will go towards funding youth development in South Africa, such as the recent tournaments set up in Macassar and Salt River in the Western Cape.
