Reed Academy comes with a unique serving of a quality environment that promises to expose Ugandan children to modern football skills. Through a professional scouting system, the Academy promises to support
children to flourish and match the requirements for national, regional and international paid football ranks. An academy which is strong on feeding the future of football, Reed promises a unique and professional model never seen in Uganda.
therefore appeal to Ugandan parents to join this academy and enrol their kids because of its unique model and international connections!” Arinaitwe Rugyendo, Chairman – Uganda Premier League & Board Member Reed Academy.
The academy will focus on individualized development of players to elite levels, socializing and enjoyment. Reed F.A. is planning to work closely with the Federation of Uganda
