reshape soccer academy
Reshape Soccer Academy began in the summer of 2016 with 50 girls and has since grown to over 200 athletes age 8-18. The academy was started as an alternative to the corrupt sports model of academies solely for profit, run by unqualified coaches, and where athletes are motivated through fear and punishment. In contrast, during each practice coaches share values lessons with the athletes and have practical applications for on the field and in life. Parents regularly share with us the difference they see in their children; offering to help around the house for the first time, speaking to them differently, and overall positive changes in their behavior.
Character and Leadership Events
Character and Leadership Events are held in schools, businesses and in partnership with NGO’s and use the experiential learning model that acts as a mirror to help facilitate self-discovery and then guided reflection for addressing surfaced needs. In the past three years Reshape has worked with thousands of school children on topics such as teamwork, inclusivity, and respect.
Reshape also works with the Syrian refugee community in Egypt to address the issues of sexual and gender based violence by teaching on topics such as real manhood, boundaries, respect, hope and speaking up against violence.
