Northern Areas Sport Program

Northern Areas Sport Program

About

The Northern areas sport development program takes place at various schools in the northern areas of Port Elizabeth. The goal of this specific program revolves around the concept, “Off the streets and onto the pitch”. We use sport as a medium to curb the high level of societal pressures that plague the youth of our community.
Introducing the sport program to schools in our community as part of a healthy balanced lifestyle will encourage learners to look beyond circumstances and use sport as a tool for self-development. Volunteers/interns will provide us with assistance in coaching and mentoring from Monday to Thursday, and occasional Saturdays.
