Certifictifacte III Sport & Recretion (Football Model) Comments:

 

"In the CFC Academy, the coaches central point is to make individuals play to their best of their ability by focusing on technical footwork and to feel comfortable with the ball. Coaches also focus on our health by checking our weight and see how far we can push our limits. This subject also brings up your ATAR points in your final result."
