We’re delighted that Connect has formed a new partnership with Edwin Doran Sports Tours.
Our academy is working with the UK’s largest school sports tour operator for fixtures and training sessions.
These opportunities will benefit our high performance athletes through more playing opportunities during 2018 and beyond.
Touring schools from Britain also have the chance to take on a Connect representative team during their stay in Cape Town.
It’s a pleasure to be able to share these experiences with our friends and primary school playing partners Vusa Academy when it comes to junior fixtures.
Our training runs through the Burgundy High Performance Centre
We are also opening up our high performance training to the tourists, giving students and staff a new perspective on their development, as well as tuning them up for their fixtures against the mighty South African teams!
Our guests will have the chance to train like a Connect Sports Academy high performance athlete under the guidance of our coaching team.
Connect became anchor tenants at Burgundy High Performance Centre, 20km north of central Cape Town, in March 2018.
The facility allows to bring greater consistency to our work, giving our youngsters more consistent access to quality resources and opportunities.
Our senior athletes combine their school training with additional work at the HPC, particularly during the off-season.
The first schools have already visited
Our partnership with Edwin Doran kicked off in April 2018 with the visit of Shrewsbury School for a junior fixture.
Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College also took on a senior Connect representative side later that weekend.
We’re looking forward to welcoming more visitors from the UK as the season goes on.
It’ll be a privilege for our youngsters to share their experiences, journeys and life stories with our friends from overseas.
