Reasons for their Success

The team attributes its success to:

1. Support from School Administration
2. Well laid out player Transition from Primary, Secondary then after Secondary.

“Winning has no shortcuts you must train and that’s our strength. We play the old girls once or twice a week which strengthens and sharpens our attack and defence.” Says Coach Simiyu.

They exclusively use their own trained students and have never been tempted to play dirty.

“Playing only legible students and no repeating because of playing is our policy. We believe in Play clean win clean just like ADAK.” Adds Coach Simiyu.

Future Plans

Coach Simiyu says that they are looking for Sponsors who can support their players through the provision of basic needs; since many of the players come from humble backgrounds.

They are also scouting for Higher institutions that can provide scholarships to their players after Form Four and sitting the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE, exams.

The school is equally looking for Disciplined forces that can absorb their players after School.


Among others, the school has the following short and long-term targets:

1. Scouting for talents from Primary Schools
2. Having a successful transmission from the Primary to maintain the strength of the team.
3. Winning the National Trophy for 5 years consecutively; from 2024-2028 as far as God gives them good health and a gift of life.
4. Winning the FEASSSA Trophy three years consecutively to break a record of Uganda.
5. Playing International Secondary school games and winning a title.

Coach Simiyu appreciates the unequivocal support of his Games Master Mr. Eric Juma Ngichabe who ensures that the administration facilitates the team with training facilities.
