• Going The Extra Mile to Combat COVID-19

    We are delighted to be extending our partnership with Bloomberg Extra Mile in China and Japan. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic Bloomberg’s Square Mile Relays, held in cities around the world, were canceled for 2020. Instead they have switched to virtual races and challenges with a portion of the money raised going to local charities in each location as part of The Extra Mile initiative. Coaches Across Continents, working with local partners, is The Extra Mile partner in Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo.

    We will be using our adaptable COVID-19 curricula to address physical activity, disease prevention, and mental-well-being in each city. CAC will train local coaches and leaders in using the curricula and cover topics of relevance to their communities. Following this training the local coaches in each city will deliver year-round programming in schools and communities with at-risk youth. This programming will ideally be in-person but is adaptable to online if required by national guidelines.

    We also currently work with Bloomberg Extra Mile and Football United in Sydney. In addition CAC has previously delivered Extra Mile programming in Beijing and Tokyo. We are honored to be supported by Bloomberg to address COVID-19 in multiple countries.

  • US Women’s Team On The Brink…

    July 1st 2015. Last night the US Women’s Soccer team reached the World Cup final after defeating Germany 2-0. The team, which triumphed thanks to second half goals from Carli Lloyd and Kelley O’Hara, is now on the cusp of making history. They will play the final on Sunday July 5th against either England or Japan, who play tonight in the second semi-final. For some Coaches Across Continents staff and supporters there may be some split loyalties if the lionesses of England go up against the US! However, if the US win the final they will become the first team in Women’s World Cup history to win the tournament three times following their victories in 1991 and 1999. Can this team which includes stars such as Abby Wambach, Hope Solo and Megan Rapinoe emulate their predecessors heroics in 4 days time?

    If you are supporting the US Women’s National Team on Sunday you could be in with a shot of completing a very impressive soccer double by entering our competition. There are only four days left to enter and be in with a chance of winning a signed 1999 US Women’s soccer team shirt! This unique shirt, signed by legends such as Mia Hamm, Brandi Chastain and Julie Foudy, is an incredible piece of history. The competition draw will take place on Sunday just before the final kicks off at 7pm EST with the winner announced on Monday July 6th. Go to this page and enter the competition today to have a shot while also supporting CAC’s work on global female empowerment.

    You can win a piece of 1999 history on the same day the 2015 US Women’s soccer team try to create new history!
