Youth Hockey Festival (Heritage Day) - Vygieskraal, Saturday 24 September 2016

A festival presented  by the City of Cape Town (Sport & Recreation District 2.4) Vygieskraal Hockey Complex Municipal Facilities Management Committee (VHCMFMC) and Central Hockey Club in collaboration with Western Province Hockey Union, South African Hockey Association and its social partners.

A huge thank you to all who contributed to another successful festival.  New ground was broken with the participation of three local primary schools which augers well for the future.

CHC  Youth now at high school, and not too long ago primary school festival participants themselves, did duty as  coaches and umpires under the supervision CHC  officials.  Parents  assisted ground staff with off-field support (e.g. registrations, equipment, hydration points, meals packs, basic first aid and general safety and security).   

Challenge u/13 Eight-a-Side games for Girls and boys once again presented a wealth of new talent. Participation by local primary schools  Norma Road, Bridgeville and Vanguard show promising signs of the revival of primary school hockey in the area.  This may well develop into a Neighbourhood League for local primary schools in 2017.  Regular participants Langa, Khayalitsha, Guguletu, Gansbaai were once again in attendance.  Squads:  Girls (6), Boys (9) = 170 learners. 

Hockey 5s (a modified version for beginners) was introduced to  foundation primary school learners drawn from local COCT Commcentres (Vygieskraal, Silvertown), local primary schools and CHC Mini Division. Squads Mixed (10) = 100 learners.

About 50 additional learners (u/9)  joined in the fun and were treated to a hearty meal pack for their efforts.

A rewarding experience and great fun was had by all!
