SPORTING CHANCE PROGRAMMESporting Chance is a leading sports coaching and development organisation in South Africa. Sport is able to break down barriers of generations, cultures, race and income levels, and on this basis Sporting Chance uses it as a vehicle to positively impact children’s lives.

The programmes aim to contribute to our communities through life skills education and participation in sport which keeps children occupied in a positive activity and away from social ills during the school holidays. The programmes consist of three phases: life skills training, coaching clinics, and a sporting tournament. The programmes take place over four days, and are held at the shopping centre in the community or at the community sports fields.

70 holiday programmes have taken place since 2015 accommodating over 8 700 children aged between 9 and 13 years.

SOCCER TEAM SPONSORSHIP PROJECTThe soccer team sponsorship project identifies deserving young adult soccer teams playing in an existing league in our communities.

A donation of centre branded soccer kit and practice equipment is made to the team and in return for the sponsorship the team plays all matches in the centre branded kit and participates in marketing events at the centre as required.

12 community soccer teams have been sponsored through the Soccer Team Sponsorship Project.
