Here is a great update from Solid Rock, one of our partners in the Cape Town area of South Africa.

Van der Stel FC is our newly formed soccer club competing in the Local Football association league. Practicing twice a week and playing twice a week.

We keep on serving the rural areas of De Doorns , Paarl by developing soccer life coaches for the rural farm kids. our leadership training in these areas tripled this year and we expect to see a rise is the need for sport and play for all walks of life, from preschoolers to young adults.

We are also planning to engage with the rugby minded in these areas and hope to get projects started in these areas.

The main focus is the continued development of coaches. we find the life coaching strategy very useful and believe the training of the heart values to be the most important to help the coaches to keep on serving through sport and play.

Continuous support from the Ball Project proves to be a valuable partnership in the support to coaches in these rural areas.
