Dear Parent/Guardian,
The Saturday Soccer League that children aged 5-17 in across Lusaka have been enjoying for the past 15 years, has
a new name for the 2014 season: the Leopard’s Hill Football League. As an independent organizing committee in
partnership with the American International School of Lusaka, we have ensured that the programme continues to
promote the important values of sportsmanship, equality, and love for the game. We have attached some
information regarding the programme this year, and would be happy to answer any additional questions you might
My name is Aditya Devalia, and as Technical Director of the Leopard’s Hill Football League, I would first and
foremost like to welcome back any returning families and welcome to the programme all our first time
participants! I am very excited to be taking over the organization of this year’s league. I am a football enthusiast
and have been actively involved in the sport all my life. I have played professionally for clubs in Zambia and in
Canada as a goalkeeper and am a Canadian Certified Community Coach for Children, Youth and Adults. I also hold
Canadian Provincial and National Coaching Certifications for Goalkeeping. During my time in Canada, I coached for
the North Toronto Soccer League (a club that boasts more than 3,500 members), where I designed and supervised,
regular season training, intensive training camps, as well as training programmes for coaches. Simultaneously, I
was also the Director of their Outreach programme for inner-city and underprivileged youth. I was also part of the
recruiting team for the Zinedine Zidane “Danone Cup League” for youth to play in France which was hosted by the
North Toronto Soccer Club. Finally, a personal highlight of my time at the club was organizing the largest Mini Cup
tournament in Canada, for participants aged 5-18. This tournament involved the participation of 72 clubs from all
across the country.
We look forward to the fantastic season ahead and would strongly remind everyone that this programme can only
run for the community with the support of the community. We are in need of Coaches and Sponsors to ensure a
successful season. Please see the detailed information attached if you, or someone you know, is interested.
We are aiming to fill up 7 teams in each age group, for our seven a side league. To register your child today, please
return the Registration Form, as well as the Participation Agreement and payment to any of the following
locations: Magic Advertising and Promotions Ltd. (16 Chipovu Rd, Rhodes Park off Addis Ababa Drive) or the Top
Shop on Cairo Rd (next to Jubliee Chemist, opposite Farmers House).
We look forward to seeing you on the field!

Aditya Devalia
