VYGIESKRAAL COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMME 2017

 SAHA / SASHOC Stakeholder Meeting at the Club House Monday 27 February (18h00-20h00) - feedback

Vygieskraal Hockey Complex has long been regarded as a “hub” for the local community.  CHC hosted a “hub” meeting attended by a range of stakeholders.  SAHA (Gary Dolley) did a presentation on the Modified Hockey Strategy, an innovative approach to promoting the game to  local primary school as part of the physical education curriculum. This could see Vygieskraal Hockey Complex becoming a hive of activity from Monday to Friday (10h00-17h00).

 Coaching Course – Level 0 at the Club House Saturday 4 March (10h00-14h00)

A successful event conducted by Jason Mulder was attended by 23 participants representing a range of stakeholders with a commitment to community development.  

The SAHA accredited course was made possible through a WPHU grant. 

 Upcoming events in support of Vygieskraal Community Outreach activities:

 Umpires Course - Level 0 at the Club House Saturday 18 March (10h00-12h00)

Slots allocated on a “first come first served” basis.  The SAHA accredited course is  made possible through a WPHU grant. 

Registrations  deadline - COB Wednesday 15 March 2017.  If interested in participating, please complete the attached soonest.

 

Youth Hockey Festival – Saturday 25 March (09h00-14h00)

The Festival caters for about 400 primary school learners (u13, u/11, u/9)  from schools / clubs / community centres which conduct Youth Development activities.

This is one of two annual festivals on the Vygieskraal calendar aimed at  encouraging and supporting year-round recreation activities for primary school learners.

It heralds the start of the Winter Outdoor Hockey Season.  These activities will be informed by SAHA’s Modified Hockey Strategy which is aligned to the National Sports Plan.  This is in line with CHC’s commitment to delivering “Education through Sport” and the City’s commitment to deliver “Education through Recreation”.    At the same time this Festival will provide a platform for stakeholders to showcase their contributions in a range of community development activities, viz. City of Cape Town (Recreation and Sport); Western Province Hockey Union; South African Hockey Association; South African Schools Hockey; Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport; Western Cape Education Department; Sport Stepping Stones, Western Province Majorettes and Cheerleaders Association., WP Athletics, Private Sector Corporate Social Investment. 

 All members / parents interested in assisting on the day need to be in touch soonest.  Some regular CHC festival staff have confirmed their availability and so have several Vygieskraal Community Outreach stakeholder representatives coming on board for the first time. This provides new participants  an opportunity to work with the old hands.  In this way capacity will be built for future outreach activities.  More about this soon.
