SPORTS HUB LAUNCHES

Go! & Express - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF RE­PORTER

A va­ri­ety of fun ac­tiv­i­ties are lined up for the launch of the Breidbach Com­mu­nity Sports Hub this week­end.

Ac­cord­ing to BCSH sec­re­tary Sean Carelse, the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded indige­nous games, touch rugby, a foot­ball marathon, ac­tion cricket, fast five netball and ac­tion hockey. “We are ex­cited about the event and call on the en­tire com­mu­nity to at­tend in their num­bers as there will be some­thing for ev­ery­one,” Carelse said.

BCSH founder Des­mond Coet­zee said he was over the moon with the as­sis­tance and sup­port of his com­mit­tee.

“The hub was formed two years ago, and for the first year, it was al­ways dif­fi­cult to or­gan­ise huge events due to a lack of in­ter­est from the com­mu­nity.

“As time went by, how­ever, it grew and to­day I can proudly say we have mem­bers with the ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise to share on any sport­ing code or recre­ational game,” Coet­zee said.

“Through hub fes­ti­vals, which we are plan­ning to host once per month, we are striv­ing to build an ac­tive na­tion through com­mu­nity sport pro­grammes.

“We will also pro­vide a home for in­di­vid­u­als who en­joy be­ing ac­tive, as well as groups, schools or col­leges, clubs, lo­cal sport or­gan­i­sa­tions and sport and re­cre­ation struc­tures,” Coet­zee said.

Carelse said lo­cal sport he­roes were in­vited as spe­cial guests and the com­mu­nity would be in­tro­duced to the hub com­mit­tee mem­bers.

The event starts at 9am and the clos­ing cer­e­mony is sched­uled for 6pm.

For more in­for­ma­tion about tak­ing part in the event, please con­tact Sean Carelse on 078-326-1520 or 079-3112443.
