The Sporting Chance summer coaching clinics were in esteemed company when Supersport Let’s Play brought Bob Skinstad, Alistair Gray, Dane Vilas and Graham Bentz to the Constantia clinics for a Supersport Let’s Play shoot. The visit was also an opportunity for the kids to see their heroes and to listen to what they had to say for future sporting success.
Bob Skinstad emphasised the importance of parental involvement in the development of his career. The former Springboks captain showed he wasn’t all talk, signing up his son for clinics this week. The importance of the Sporting Chance clinics was highlighted in the light of the successful career of batsman Alistair Gray, who received his early coaching at the hands of Sporting Chance instructors, while the vital role played by clinics of this nature was further underscored by Gray’s Cape Cobras teammate Dane Vilas, a product of similar clinics.
For the older children Graham Bentz, the rugby conditioning coach for the World Cup winning Baby Boks, did a wonderful job speaking about the body, how it works and what one needs to do in order to make it on the world stage.
Certainly food for thought for our youngsters, showing that even from an early age it is important to have a plan for your life!
Thanks to Flip File, Gunn and Moore, HiTec South Africa, Kauai South Africa, Sportsmans Warehouse and Supersport Let’s Play for the continued support of our coaching clinics.
