Here is a fun update from one of our partners in the Cape Town, South Africa area:

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 in the need to GO in sport and play for all walks of life – preschoolers to young adults.

Devon Valley Primary School Teams
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 a whole life coaching strategy very useful and believe the training of heart values to be most important to help the coaches to keep on serving through sport and play.

Ball Project is grateful for all of our partners working to help children play.
