Infrastructure Development

Infrastructure Development

Our approach to development is to work both broad and deep, i.e. to have programmes where many young people can participate and specific programmes targeted at smaller groups where we can monitor individual progress.

Our centres therefore are heavily utilised with active opening hours from 8.30 am to 10.00 pm. Our pitches are small so that our coaches can monitor individuals and communicate with them with excessive shouting.

Since opening Mbekweni Community Sports Centre in 2010 we have built 4 outdoor cricket nets and an all-weather netball/hand ball court to meet the growing needs of our young people. Further plans include additional all weather play areas and a grass pitch.

We have also started construction on our second community sports centre in Groendal, Franschhoek which is due to open early 2015. Please see the Future Sites page for further details.
