Three of our hockey players make the Boland Team!

We are proud to announce that Luphiwe, Indi and Qhama have made the under 13 Boland district Hockey Team. Qhama and Luphiwe will be attending the regionals in George and Indi will be competing in the Interprovincials in Pietermaritzburg in Kwa Zulu Natal.

These three dedicated hockey players attend practice every day under the careful guidance of our hockey coach, Shereen van der Merwe. It is a great credit to our hockey programme that three of the players have been selected for the district teams. In the hockey programme players that attend hockey practice consistently and illustrate dedication are awarded their own hockey sticks to play with. All three of these players have earned their hockey sticks.

The Foundation hockey programme has grown since it's inception in 2009 and now extends to include 409 children playing hockey in the region.
