Who am i
As ironic as it may sound, I count myself as very fortunate to have grown up under the visious apartheid system. From a young age, I was exposed to giants in the fields of development and non-racial sport. All I know today I learnt frm the best leaders in the struggle for political democracy. I have experienced over many years the power of community organisations, youth and sports clubs as a valuable tool for sustainable development. The poorest of poor communities have thriving sports clubs that survive over many generations, generating their own resources. Through these organisations, communities acquire organisational management, event management, fundraising, financial management, communication, conflict resolution skills and much more. I have been part of more organisations than I can remember and I am ready to share my experience with you
Where I come from and where I wish to go
WHAT HAVE I DONE
Through my career opportunities, I have developed a wide variety of experience and skills, all of which I am now able to offer my clients
After 10 years of teaching; 5 in Hanover Park and 5 in Rocklands, Mitchell’s Plain, I joined the University of Cape Town as a Senior Sports Administrator. Under teh leadership of the legendary John Donald, I managed numerous student sport clubs and also organised numerous national student events including fencing, sailing, rowing and the highly competitive internal Football League
I moved to join Professor Tim Noakes and former South African Rugby captain, Morne Du Plessis at the newly established Sports Science Institute of South Africa and headed up their community outreach programme. My mission was to make sports science accessible and affordable to the broader sporting community. We managed a wide variety of activities, discovered and supported young talent with sorts science services. We also managed to educate and change the behavior of many coaches as far afield as George and Namaqualand. We established community based health and fitness programmes such as CHIPS (Community Health Intervention Programmes0 which have survived to this very day.
