Coaches for American Football Needed

If you are one of the 6,000 expats living here in Cuenca and love American Football, this is your chance to come out and make a difference. We’re not looking for the next Knute Rockne or even for someone who knows every aspect of the game, but we do desperately need people who are willing to give a few hours a week to help young Ecuadorian men, those in the Universities, learn and develop their skills in this sport.
At the U of Cuenca, we practice Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 2:00pm, and Saturdays from noon until everyone is worn out. We are setting up teams at other Universities and will need more help as those teams come on line, so if you have any desire to help, but don’t think you’re ready to coach yet, this is the time to come out and learn, to share your experiences and to help us build this program.
Any questions about this opportunity can be directed to Coach Harry @ cso.harry.pearson@gmail.com or 096-885-2503. Even better, come on out and look the team over and join in.
