Soccer youth cup promotes health

2017-05-23 06:00

The u.16 youth cup returns this year, promising three days of action-packed soccer.

Hosted by Bayview FC, the competition will feature 32 teams in four groups playing for three trophies over the three days. It will be held at the Strandfontein sports complex.

Kick-off on Saturday 11 June will be at 09:00, and on Sunday 12 June at 10:00, with the finals held on Youth Day.

The official launch of the competition took place on Wednesday last week, with the groups being drawn.

Group 1 and 2 will play for the cup section, with group 3 in the plate section and group 4 in the shield section of the competition.

Event director and president of Bayview FC Mark Rodrigues says the competition was created five years ago.

“We saw that the youth were being exposed to negative influences like gangsterism and drugs and we knew we needed to do something to take the youth out of that,” he says.

The participating boys are in the most vulnerable 14 to 16 years range, says Rodrigues.

The mission of the tournament is therefore to bring a change through sport, promote healthy living and youth development.

“This is not about the club, this is about the youth,” he says.

People’s Post is the official print media sponsor of the competition.

The event is supported by the Safa Western Cape, to which all the teams are affiliated, and the Mitchell’s Plain Football Association.

The tournament will encourage development in the sport with scouts visiting throughout the event, looking for new talent.
