Meet the Coaches Working In Zimbabwe

September 16, 2013.  This is the second year for Coaches Across Continents in Zimbabwe.  We will be working with Sport 4 Socialisation in Mutare and with Bulldogs Sport Development Trust in Bindura and Harare.  The CAC team that will be working with these fine programs consist of Sophie LeGros, Jon Dickinson, Dani Foxhoven, and Becca Meierbachtol.  Recently one of these four coaches won a national title – do you know which one?  Answer coming tomorrow…

Favorite Coach: Sir Alex Ferguson

Who will win the World Cup 2014 and 2015: Brazil (2014) and Germany (2015)
Why I am looking forward to working with CAC?: “Traveling to a country with completely different cultures, scenery, and values than my own provides an opportunity for cross-learning.  Whilst I hope that my time and energy on the CAC programs will benefit the people I come in to contact with in Zimbabwe, I also look forward to the learning and personal development it will provide for me in return.”
