Behind the Game: Rohan Kambale
The announcement of a new coach is always good tidings. It means that our program is expanding and more kids are getting the chance to train under professional guidance. This in the long term, means a larger pool of talent to scout from and more opportunities for children to pursue their passion.
We recently welcomed on board Rohan Kambale, a semi-pro footballer and now coach, to our program. Rohan will join the team at Santa Cruz High School and Father Agnel Central, Pilar. We have a chat with Rohan to get to know him a little better and try and get a glimpse into his coaching style.
