FRONTBALL AU TOGO
Togo : a story which had already begun
The Frontball Academy in Togo was borned thanks to Togo 19 association, created by Cosette and Jean-Louis Verlhac. Their purpose is to build sport, health and education projects in order to support small Togolese towns. Few years afer they discovered Pala, the young of Seva, Kati and Afou recently enjoyed Frontball.
We were hosted in these three towns by teachers and adolescents coming from surrounding schools. In Seva, we got surprised by the wall was newly perfectly repainted, the court well prepared and the limits exatly affixed. Our stage was expected and the players fully ready to compete. The level was amazing. Vivacity, coordination and experience: potential prospective champions.
Our mission on these three days was to train the adolescents and the coaches by teaching them the most important pedagogic bases of Frontball.
At the end of these three days of formation, an important tournament took place in Seva where thirty young from ten towns came to compete. The level was particularly high.
Village youth continue to train since our departure.
In July 2017, two Seva youths were able to participate in the World Frontball World Championships in Mexico City in the Under-22 category, and they are not unworthy!
Notre mission sur ces trois jours a été d’entraîner les jeunes, leur donner les bases solides, ainsi que de former les enseignants à la pédagogie du Frontball.
A l’issue de ces trois journées de formation, un grand tournoi a été organisé à Seva, réunissant une trentaine de jeunes issus de 10 villages différents.
Le niveau était élevé.
