What our athletes have been up to
Khayelitsha’s CONNECT Sports Academy was named Best Development Programme at the prestigious Discovery SA Sport Industry Awards on Thursday last week.
After just one year of playing contact rugby, we were named the Best Development Programme at the SA Sport Industry Awards.
CONNECT has been shortlisted as the Best Development Programme at the SA Sport Industry Awards.
Just a little over a year ago, the foundations of Connect Rugby Academy were being laid in the arena of touch rugby.
From Khayelitsha to Ysterplaat, with Sea Point and Camps Bay in between, the Atlantic Rugby Academy boasts one of the most transformed set-ups in South Africa.
Rugby season is slowly coming to an end, but we seem to keep on getting better.
CONNECT Sports Academy’s young Khayelitsha stars are leading the push for transformation – on the 20th anniversary of South Africa’s famous World Cup triumph.
On Youth Day, 16 June 2015, the CONNECT Sports Academy will have three teams featuring at a Touch Tournament in Athlone. We will take a junior, senior and girls’ team to take part in a day-long competition at the Turfhall Softball Stadium.
