    Naga Children, teaching and disciplining, team-work, individual
    confidence, techniques, skills and commitment through the World's most
    loved game - football. Since its inception, KKFA has come second in the
    3rd NRHM Chizami Cup and already have a host of interested trainees at
    our academy. KKFA knows that to train the best, one must begin training
    them from grass-root levels and the Academy is already in the process of
    tying up with schools for Summer Football clinics.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif';">True to our faith and commitment, Kohima Komets Football Academy held its
    first ever Junior Football Training Programme (8 yrs- 13yrs) on the 30th
    of May 2012 at D. Khel Ground, Seikhazou, Kohima Village. Earlier, the
    Academy and the Club were training together, however this programme
    means that now the academy will be able to focus on the up-coming young
    stars with centric training skills tailor made for them, as well as
    teach them technique, positioning, team play, conditioning at a very
    young age making them intelligent footballers. This marks the beginning
    of a new Era of Football for the next generation.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif';">In spite of the limited advertisement time and the heaviest downpour in
    Kohima this year, 11 young players turned up for the training programme.
    After a pep talk by the Kohima Komets Football Academy Head Coach, Mr
    Jorden Brahma Wangdi, the trainees were then given static and
    flexibility sessions of about 30 minutes each with a light break in
    between. The session ended with a match of Futsal of 6 players each.
    Coach Jorden was aptly assisted by his assistant coach, Mr Patrick
    Brixner.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif';">http://www.kohimakomets.com/index.php/news/158-kkfa-junior visit the link for more stories and pictures</span><br><span style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: 'Verdana','sans-serif';">Keep supporting us as we start on this maiden venture to sport talent around Kohima first and then expand later to other districts in the state.</span>
