Our story revolves around the beautiful game being that one common language for everyone. Creating a pathway for success within the realms of playing the beautiful game is our main objective. Knowing that success can differ based on one’s definition of it, here at DD8 Academy creating a positive life experience from playing the beautiful game is the mission. Our tough background taught us that culture is essential in life, our culture comes from a background which taught us that one’s attitude towards their actions during hard times can determine whether their experience can be good one. Elite mentality and a positive mindset are essential. Our story began from having the experience of playing barefoot in the streets from a very young age which was quite special. We realized that the smallest things in life can mean so much. From those moments grew the ambition and desire to continue towards reaching a potential which led to one day signing a professional contract and playing on some well known stadiums, lived in four different continents while playing. That definitely created a life experience which cannot ever be taken for granted. At DD8, we strive to help you reach your potential on and off the pitch and help give you a similar life experience if not better.
