Enriching the lives of our youth through soccer

Goals Foundation is proud to support the Spitfire Leadership & Sports Academy. Through this partnership, we aim to educate our community about the importance of helping those less fortunate than us globally.

Spitfire aims to transform lives through training of the great game of soccer. The mission is to teach not only the highest level of soccer skills, but also leadership, discipline, self confidence, responsibility, respect, transparency and honesty towards others and team work.

One of the greatest goals is to provide graded and level sports fields and to get equipment to youth in more remote or economically disadvantaged areas, to provide an endearing program with the hope that the youth will use their new skills to live their lives to recognize and help others in need.

More about Julius Ujeh

Coach Julius Ujeh founded Spitfire Leadership & Soccer Academy in 1992 as a way to reach out to kids who have a love for soccer as he did growing up in Nigeria. The Academy was modeled after Spitfire FC an elite youth academy established by a Brit name Alan Hawkes that trained the most talented high school ballers from his home school state for professional leagues.

Coach Julius’s passion and talent for soccer got him an entrance into Salem State University in Massachusetts.

After having opportunity to play and coach professionally, he saw the need and how lives can be transformed by the confidence and discipline instilled just by playing soccer.

Through Spitfire Leadership & Soccer Academy/Ministry, Coach Julius wishes to spread his passion and knowledge for the sport and also an undiluted love for Jesus to help kids discover their talents and reach for their dreams.
