SA youth participate in Korea’s Dream Programme
- Updated: January 23, 2015
A team of four enthusiastic South Africans will be participating in the 11th edition of the Dream Programme in Korea from 25 January to 6 February 2015.
The Dream Programme is an annual training camp hosted by the Gangwon Province to nurture young winter-sports talent in countries without a winter season or where winter sports are not widely practiced.
Approximately 1400 young people from 68 different countries will participate in this year’s training, and will also attend various cultural experiences. Among them, 156 youths have competed in winter sports events at international level.
This year, Snow Sports South Africa was availed an opportunity to select participants to attend. Figure skating participants attended the previous programme in 2012.
The programme line-up includes: winter-sports training, which encompass a Development Course: winter-sports athlete nurturing and an Interest-building Course: winter-sports fan nurturing, alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross-country, para-alpine skiing, biathlon short-track speed skating, figure skating, a PyeongChang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic facilities Tour and Cultural exchanges.
Says SASCOC CEO, Tubby Reddy, “We wish the youth all the best in Korea, encourage them to utilise this opportunity and learn as much as they can about winter-sports and the cultural diversity of other countries.”
