Sport for all project helps Regorogile teenagers reach their potential

REGOROGILE – Sports for all is a project based on HIV/AIDS awareness, equipping the young and older people in sporting activities to lead the community to untap their sport potential. This project also helps the community to join hands to fight HIV/AIDS, drug abuse and ultimately prevent crime in Thabazimbi.
The aim of Sport for all, under leadership of program director Josephine Sebolayi, is to feed, teach and train these players. It is a multi-sport program that provides cost effective, structured coaching and life skill. They are also motivating them in different skills and making them appreciate nature and the environment and to be freely separated from drugs, alcohol, sex and other things negatively effecting their health and status.
Two players previously from Mabogopedi High in Regorogile and Sport for All Project, Hilda and Ntshetshe where nominated to attend the Mokopane Academy of Sport in Potgietersrust last year, due to their achievements in the U/16 Ladies Soccer team, and has been at the Academy since January 2009.
Sports for all consists of nine sporting goods, namely Soccer, Netball, Tennis, Volley ball, Basket ball, Cricket, Rugby, Hockey and indigenous games like hop scotch and rope jumping. Their major concern however is funds and transport of the children, both to survive and to move from point A to point B, having games away from their local community. Sport for All have the smart cards system for each player which enables them to go and play games in different places. However, some of these children can’t afford to pay for the smart cards which costs R30 per month per player which also goes to the replacement of equipment. Josephine would like to thank the community for their support thus far, if they would like to be part of this project, they may call her on 076 181 1307, or visit them at the Regorogile playground from Monday to Friday.
