Training Coaches

Drawing on years of experience, Ambassadors Football has developed various ways in which to train individuals and churches on how to use football for ministry. Training takes place in different forms including: Internship programs and Intensive courses TREC (Training Resourcing Equipping Coaches/Churches).


TREC is the flagship training course that Ambassadors Football conducts around the world. TREC is a 35 hour intensive training program delivered at 3 different levels. Each TREC includes classroom and on-field training delivered by certified and licensed Tutors and experienced missionaries. The main focus of the program is to train Christian coaches to influence others and in the process mentor and disciple their players in Christ.
