Meet Rising Star Jose and his love for PASS Abu Dhabi

Yalla’s Rising Stars aims to inspire more children to take up a new sport or hobby by showcasing talented children across Abu Dhabi and the wonderful companies that support and train them in their endeavours.

So when we met with the brilliant team at ProActive Soccer School (PASS) Abu Dhabi, we couldn’t wait to feature them!

PASS is one of the capital’s largest football clubs, providing a fun and safe environment for children to learn in a fun and safe environment.  One little kicker who is doing just that is José.


He is a Yalla Rising Star and plays football with PASS Abu Dhabi. He is a 6-year-old Abu Dhabi resident who hails from Venezuela. He attends Gems Cambridge International Schools, and his passion is football.

While Jose can play any position, he especially loves to be striker of midfielder.

When he’s not bending it like Beckham used to, you can find Jose on the trampoline or doing just about anything active and outdoors; he just loves to run and have fun!

Jose is way too young to be thinking about boring things like work, but he does imagine himself a professional footballer one day playing in the best stadiums in the world and on the very best teams. No one is too young or too old to dream.

What’s perhaps most important to know about Jose is that he is a a very happy child with an incredible sense of humor.

At home he loves to listen to music and play ball. He has been honing his skills with PASS Abu Dhabi for the past four years, and he looks forward to much more growth and training under his coaches’ watchful eyes.

#YallaLoves our #RisingStars! We wish to thank PASS Abu Dhabi’s Seth Amoafo for helping us to discover Jose. If you know any child that you believe deserves our recognition, please email us at yalla@yallauae.aewith #RisingStar in the subject line.
