Avondale Athletic Club Coach Back From United States

Avondale Athletic Club Coach Back From United States

Avondale Athletic Club coach, Knowledge Jemwa, has returned home from the United States of America where he was attached to several football academies.

Jemwa was the only Zimbabwean in the programme, which ran from 10 July to 31 October 2021.

He is a holder of a Diploma in Sports Management and a Diploma in Talent Scouting with the Scottish Football Association (FA). Speaking about his once in a lifetime adventure, Jemwa said:

I managed to have time with coaches from clubs like Leeds Academy, LA Galaxy, Hollywood Soccer Academy, Valencia Academy, FC Barcelona, Portland Timbers and Nike Soccer Academy, among several others.

I visited one great club, Legends Football Club in Los Angeles, and had some great sessions there and they are showing interest in taking me on board next year.

We also visited Wentumpka Soccer Club and Universities. I have been to nine different States and got some good feedback from the directors. The experience has been great, to be honest.

I met different coaches from England, Brazil and several European countries and one of the coaches is an ex-Leeds player Bile Smith Tiesse who used to play with our own Munyaradzi Mbanje at Leeds United juniors, and is now a coach at Leeds Under-12.
