International Travel

Edgars Youth Programme, once every year, travels and participates in international competitions and this is seen to yield best results as good players and public figures have been developed through similar arrangements like Mugisa Albert who present day plays for SC Villa, Andrew Kabora NTV sports presenter, Mugulusi Ibrahim playing for SC Villa and Stephen Dese Mukwala playing for SC Vipers.

Edgars Youth Programme (EYP) hereby provides your child (aged 6 to 17 years) an open opportunity to travel and participate in soccer trips to London- England at a humble cost of $3900 for The London Cup Football Tournament (22nd July –  1st August 2019).

Parents interested can enroll their child/children by contacting EYP immediately on +256702667780; +256772486687; +256772667780; Office Line +256393206206; email  coach@edgarsyouthprog.org ; or visit our offices on Plot 654, Albert Cook Road, Mengo. 

Registration is done by Parents after committing an initial nonrefundable deposit of $600 by 31st March 2019 to enable Team booking, Immigration and Visa verification; $1000 by 12th April 2019, $1500 by 12th May 2019 and final payment of by the 12th June 2019 at the latest.

Payments can only be made either at EYP Offices where an Official receipt is immediately issued or transferred on Dollar Account Number 0600039843 in Housing Finance Bank and a slip duly submitted. Note: Travel Funds paid are subject to EYP Refund Policy!

Only Youths whose Parents have written consent and commitment to abide by the terms and conditions of travel shall be enrolled. EYP expresses a disclaimer that it has no authority to issue Entry Visas and therefore the entire travel contingent is subjected to the Government/ Embassies conditions; and that although EYP presents the applications for Visa in a group to the Embassy, we are not liable for the failure of individuals to obtain visas as this is decided by the Embassy individual assessment.

However, having done travels in the past, we expect the 2019 soccer trips to be extra ordinary with opportunities for the young players to get exposure.

TRAVEL HISTORY

Over the last 10 years EYP has participated in a number of International tournaments like the Schwan’s USA Cup (2011/2012/2013/2014/2015/2016/2017); Welsh International Super Cup (2009/2010/2011/2013/2014/2015); Keele Cup (2012), Gothia World Youth Cup (2008/2009), Norway Cup (2010); Nottingham International Cup (2016), New Balance International Cup 2017 and World Cup Youth Conference in Germany (2006) among others. “Being part of this tournament (The London Cup 2018) is a great step in talent development with opportunities for the young players to get exposure.” Said Mr. Edgar Watson, the Team Leader Edgars Youth Programme during his motivating speech at the ceremony. Unlike the past years, the travelling team was joined by 10 EYP players who train in Rwanda in 2018.

A team of 43 including players, coaches and team parents was officially flagged-off on 30th July 2018 by Chief Guest Mrs. Ejalu Patricia Bageine the Deputy Executive Director-Standards at Uganda National Bureau of Standards to their journey to participate in the London Cup Tournament slated for 1st to 12th August at Brunel University, West London- United Kingdom.
