On a magnificent Thursday 12th February afternoon in 33 degrees heat, children from various schools in Khayelitsha attended a cricket coaching clinic hosted by the Solstice Foundation and Sporting Chance at the Khayelitsha Sports Stadium.
On arrival the children were taken through a warm up by our experienced coaches. After the warm up they were divided into respective age groups and designated a coach. During the clinic they rotated through the different cricket skill stations to ensure they got an understanding of everything cricket has to offer. Despite the heat, the coaches were full of enthusiasm and passed on as much knowledge as possible. Through this clinic 2 Sporting Chance coaches Bulelani Menze and Vuyani Parafini, have built up a relationship with the schools that attended and have volunteered their services to coach these children on a weekly basis.
Everyone who participated left with a huge smile on their face! Once again thanks to the Solstice Foundation for making this clinic possible and for assisting Sporting Chance in achieving their mission of giving every child a “Sporting Chance.”
