CHANTEL Botes (16) from Kuswag was scouted and selected to be one of the U19 girls’ hockey players who were chosen from the Elsie Coetzer Hockey School (ECHS) coaching clinics and the ECHS Tournament across South Africa.

Over 350 players participated in the tournament and hockey clinics held throughout South Africa, so this is a remarkable achievement.

As one of the top players, Chantel will accompany other highfliers from across South Africa on a hockey tour to the Netherlands.

The tour has been constructed specifically to expose participants not only to the sport side of the people of the Netherlands, but also to the prospective opportunities available to them.

Attendees will play against the Netherlands and Belgium’s best hockey clubs. The tour takes place over nine days and will in the September, October holidays and will cost around R42 300.

Chantel needs the community’s financial support and in order to assist with the financial side of the tour, she is selling Shake-it Peri-Peri sauce for R30 a bottle as a fund-raising initiative.

Anyone interested can contact her mom, Cristelle, at 084 615 3055 or Emmie Barnard at 082 770 7998.

People wanting to assist financially can make payments to the following account: Freeworld Travel Bank: Absa, branch code: 632005, account number: 407 084 5967, reference: ECHS19G/CBOTES
