Clube Desportivo Panther Force Gaia

Vila Nova de Gaia
Foundation date

The Panther Force was established in 2006, initially with the name of “Panterinhas de Gaia”, when the President of the Club was Mr. Jose Manuel Ferreira, being the first school with the representation of Boavista F.C. in Vila Nova de Gaia, having at the moment 110 athletes. Since then our activities are centered in the City of Vila Nova de Gaia. We are a School that essentially works in the training of children and adult athletes, providing a healthful growth at both psychological and physical level.

During these years we participated and organized national and international matches of great prestige in places such as Belgium, France, Spain or Italy. We make possible for our athletes different activities with the participation of parents and children, also under our organization. We work directly with the educative community and school sports promoting social values and social inclusion. For its functioning, the school works with one Coordinator, six coachs, four athletic Trainers and two Doctors.
