The 10 schools, identified through the Department of Education Sport and Culture, will benefit from this magnificent initiative through SASCOCs gesture to promote playing of sport by all.
Says SASCOC CEO, Tubby Reddy: The opening of this District Academy of Sport coincides with our celebration of a 20-year democracy. As SASCOC, we therefore encourage the community to make use of this facility and maintain the spirit that our late Tata Madiba instilled in us, which is that of unity. We look forward to the challenge ahead of us, of making sure that we contribute towards the talent-nurturing process within our country.
