Brave Warriors and Blackburn defender Ryan Nyambe will host a coaching clinic for children between the ages of six and 15 years in Windhoek between 15 and 25 May.

According to the Namibia Football Association (NFA) website on Saturday, Nyambe will be joined by former Brave Warriors captain Ronald Ketjijere and former national team assistant coach Collin Benjamin.

The coaching clinic will be a stepping stone to Nyambe’s dream of setting up a football academy in Namibia as a way of ploughing back and will take place at the NFA’s Technical Centre.

Nyambe confirmed his plans to the NFA, saying the talent in Namibia motivated him to come up with a football academy in the country.

”The idea came to me as soon as I was drafted into the national team and saw the talent that is around. With proper coaching and setup these guys too can play in England and other major countries and for me, it is about doing my part to push that dream forward,” Nyambe said.

He paid tribute to Benjamin and Ketjijere saying their pedigree says it all.

”It’s really massive for me to have these guys around with me and together we can do better by combining our knowledge. Our country needs us and whatever small we do will go a long way in giving these youngsters a dream and motivation to go further,” explained Nyambe.

Meanwhile, Benjamin, who is the founder of HopSol Junior League, confirmed that he will be part of the coaching clinics and praised Nyambe for recognising the need to develop football at the grassroots level.

“I am excited to be part of this because I love football development, especially at the grassroots level. There are kids who need such opportunities and Ryan has provided them,” he added.

The Ryan Nyambe Soccer School will be for boys and girls between six and 15 years.
