    Assouman, who is on staff with Athletes in Action and is from the Ivory Coast, gave us his take on the Coaches Academy:

    "I am Jean Michel Assouman and I come from the Ivory Coast. I am on staff with Athletes in Action and I have been for 7 years. I bring coaches to this academy for two reasons. First, it's an opportunity for a coach to improve their ability and to empower them. Second, it gives them opportunity to grow in their faith. So, I'm very excited for the academy because it's growing and I appreciate all of the activities, including visiting universities and Athletes in Action Headquarters. I pray that the outcome of this training wil be fruitful."
