SASFA : Believe in your dreams put to real test
The year 2016 is no exception from the previous year as we are gearing to witness the hordes of young players organised at school level as they enter their first competitive Football under the aegis of SA Schools Football Association in partnership with DANONE.
“It is at this age that they start to earn nicknames and they develop affinity towards a particular club, player and style of play and their football sense is awakened. Presently the DANONE Nations Cup is in full swing across the country in various stages depending on the province” said Mandla ‘Shoes’ Mazibuko President SA Schools FA. “The real test is located in the ability to afford the learners an opportunity to showcase their natural skill as they invade all types of football fields in pursuit of this lifelong desire to play” said Mandla Shoes Mazibuko.
The biggest prize is the opportunity to hoist the national flag at the DANONE Nations Cup International later this year. The DANONE Nations Cup is an effective tool for Social Cohesion, Development of personal and inter personal skills and a window to see and view the world in a different angle for these players.
The Northern Cape teams have travelled their share in this journey for recognition. The next 7 days the province will be abuzz with excitement as various Regions are finalising their teams for the Provincial build up. This weekend 3 regions will playing giving us 18 schools whose eyes are set on the big Prize. Who will it be? We will only know after the fat lady sings come Saturday the 5th of March.
