JVW, together with the Hollywoodbets Foundation, hosted a soccer clinic in Durban, where 4 of the Blue Diamond first team players had the opportunity to coach and interact with a group of young talented players.
KZN Invitational Primary School Soccer Association is an initiative that was founded in 2011 for young boys and later in 2019 expanded to give both boys and girls the opportunity to follow their passions of thriving in the sport we all know to love.
KZNIPSSA have set their sights on building a foundation that will give young football players the platform to showcase their skills and also to teach them various life skills such as respect, humility and honor as well as making amazing memories and friendships along the way.
The teams were selected from various schools around the KZN province and have had players from over 300 schools since 2011, where they host two major tournaments every year.
The Ian Macleod Tournament which is attended by 360 of the best boys and the Fran Hilton-Smith Tournament that is attended by 240 of the best girls each year.
KZNIPSSA will be taking three U13 coastal teams (Izinkanyezi, Valkyries and Stars) consisting of 45 young girls to participate in the Bill Stewart Football Tournament this year which will take place from the 23rd-25th September at Camp Discovery, Dinokeng Game Reserve.
The KZN Izinkanyezi team are the current national champions of the tournament and the KZN Valkyries holding the bronze, KZNIPSSA have the goal this year to retain their title of national champions and to bump up their spot from third to second place taking gold and silver home this year.
KZNIPSSA, a registered NPO, face many challenges along the way, one being financial and with that the Hollywoodbets Foundation offered their help by hosting an administration and coaching clinic with the help of JVW Football Club.
The day started off with a coaching administration presentation presented by JVW Co-Founder Lauren Duncan and First Team assistant coach Alexia Cassar, which was attended by the very passionate technical team of KZNIPSSA, who are all educators based within the KZN schooling region, and were given extensive tips and tricks on becoming well-managed coaches and managers.
The day continued with a coaching clinic which took place at Durban Primary School where all the fun took place, with 40 young and talented girls experinecing being coached the JVW Way.
Along with the coaching clinic provided, the Hollywoodbets Foundation ended the day off with a generous donation of training equipment and a cheque for R10 000, to assist with final preparations for the tournament.
JVW would like to wish KZNIPSSA all the best for the Bill Stewart Football Tournament taking place this September.
