June 10, 2015

Bermuda’s Brazilian Football School [BBFS] in partnership with Bank of Bermuda Foundation, facilitated a 5 month After School program at the Dellwood Middle School.

The program commenced on January 13th and concluded on June 4th with football and futsal activity from 3:30 – 5:00 pm twice a week.

Each week [Tuesday and Thursday] the After School Football program offered a maximum of 30 students, a fun and active safe haven for those who would primarily leave the school grounds without adult supervision. The post 3:30pm program ensured that all participating students received positive mentoring.
