Yong Sports Academy was created in 2004 with the aim of training interested and talented young people in the development of their various sport talents.
Though at creation many sports were on program, so far football has dominated training and so for now only young people interested in football are admitted into the training center. The Academy has two standard football pitches, modern classrooms, and accommodation and transportation facilities with resident qualified football instructors who have the responsibility of making sure all trainees attain formal schools as per the program of the center.
The Academy is located on the outskirts of Nkwen Bamenda 7km from the noisy metropolitan city center. The academic year in the center runs from September to June each year.
Admissions are done till December ending though admitted by this time will have to do extra catch up both in the center and their various formal educational establishments.
