In March 2013 we worked in Accra and Kumasi with Youth Icons and Ghana Football Association. We had a great turnout of hundreds of coaches. Some of the coaches in Accra had attended the CAC training session in 2012 and were eager to learn more games. It was our first time in Kumasi and we had many amazing coaches who were learning football for social impact games for the first time.
