Delta Cultura began its activities in 2002 in Tarrafal with football training for children (and Batuco). The goal of football training was never to train professional players. The aim was always to offer children and young people a leisure activity that they would enjoy doing. Furthermore, football training was and is a good opportunity to address important topics such as environmental problems, gender equality, etc.
At the beginning, when all the coaches worked on a voluntary basis, there were only U12 and U16 for boys, but the offer quickly expanded due to enormous demand. The first girls team joined in 2003.
After a few years of operation and with the opening of the Education Centre in 2005, there were football training sessions and games on the weekends for all age groups. U7, U9, U11, U13 (boys and girls together), U15, U17, U19 and first team for boys and men as well as U16 and first team for girls and women. All age groups train twice a week.
The trainers of the Education Centre have received numerous training courses over the years. There were also several training sessions in the area of football for social development, mainly by Coaches Across Continents, an organization that specializes in alternative forms of play to teach relevant topics.
The football activities are among the most popular at the Education Centre. Above all, the regular games on the weekends are highlights in the lives of children and young people and, as the stories of former participants show, create lasting positive memories for them.
