Foday Kabba

Foday Kabba, Director of Coaching

Foothills Soccer Club is excited to introduce our newest Director of Coaching, Foday Kabba. Foday has been living in Portland for over 20 years after moving here from Sierra Leone as a teenager. Soccer helped Foday to bridge the gap when he moved from West Africa to the Pacific Northwest and allowed him to build connections and community. Soccer created a family for him while he has not always been able to be near his relatives.

Foday is excited to be part of a community-based soccer club that is honest and realistic about the goals it is trying to accomplish for players and the club. Foday is committed to helping players develop skills, grow their love of the game, and continue to learn important life lessons. His primary goal during his time at FSC is to leave a legacy that is centered on developing kids and their skills.

Foday looks to grow his legacy both here and back in West Africa alongside Kalabash Academy, his non-profit that works to build opportunity and community through education and soccer. Kalabash Academy nurtures kids to use soccer to gain further education at universities. Higher education allows them to come back home and create positive change while building better citizens of the world.

Danny Mwanga, Technical Director

Danny Mwanga is Foothills Soccer Club’s new Technical Director and we could not be more thrilled to have him as part of the FSC team. Danny was born in Central Africa where he developed his love and passion for football. Danny moved to Portland when he was just 15 and considers Portland and the Pacific Northwest his home even with the many moves for his career.

Danny played soccer for Oregon State University where he was recruited as the number one draft pick for Major League Soccer to play for the Philadelphia Union before coming back to Portland as a member of the Timbers.

After hanging up his boots as a player, Danny had a strong desire to stay involved in the game he loves and was looking forward to a way where he could share his love for the game and give back to the community. Danny looks forward to working alongside the players, coaches, and parents at FSC by helping all players achieve their goals from those who want to play soccer at a higher level to those who simply play because love the game.

Born and raised in Africa, where football is more than a sport, but a vehicle to propel oneself in life, Danny is excited to share his experience and knowledge with FSC athletes and help them to achieve these important life lessons and skills.
