The WFFA and Amazing People Schools release ‘Our Amazing Freestyle Community’ website

The World Freestyle Football Association (WFFA) has joined forces with character education experts Amazing People Schools (APS) to create the extraordinary new digital education tool ‘Our Amazing Freestyle Community’. 

Featuring the stories of 10 incredibly talented and diverse freestylers from around the globe, the Our Amazing Freestyle Community website showcases each freestyler’s road to success, identifying the key character strengths needed for them to overcome adversity and challenges in their lives to become the successful athletes we know today. 

The goal of the website is to engage young people through the exciting world of Freestyle Football with the objective of equipping them with key character-building tools that will help them thrive whatever their life circumstances may be. 

Frances Corcoran, Managing Director at Amazing People Schools, said: “Amazing stories are everywhere but don’t always get the airtime they deserve. This is why we are so excited to be collaborating with the WFFA on Our Amazing Freestyle Community website, which shines a well-deserved spotlight on these inspirational athletes and the journeys they have been on to do what they love. We work with schools year-round and know the impact these stories of perseverance, resilience and creativity can have.”

Ben Tegg, Director of Engagement at Amazing People Schools, said: “Our Amazing Community is completely unique concept within the Sport For Good arena. We all know that sport is an amazing tool for engaging and educating young people and we are really proud to be able to take the skills we learnt from Amazing People Schools to add character education into that space.”

Minna Marlo, Head of Development at the WFFA, said: “Sport in general, and Freestyle Football in particular, is an extraordinary means to change the world for the better. As the global governing organ for our discipline, at the WFFA we are completely aligned with the values of Amazing People Schools and we feel this new website is just the start of a very productive, long-term relationship!”.

Dan Wood, Head of Partnerships at the WFFA, said: “The launch of this collaboration with Amazing People Schools fills us with pride. We believe in our sport as a tool for good and have been working to leverage the endless educational possibilities it offers since the foundation of the WFFA: seeing them materialise into this program makes us really happy”.
