Ikasi Soccer School held a tournament for young girls in Khayelitsha last Saturday.

Ikasi Soccer School is a coaching and talent driven school’s developmental programme for young girls between the ages of eight and 15-years to be empowered with skills.

The participating schools in Khayelitsha were Hopolang Primary School, Kukhakhanyile Primary School, Lwandle Primary School and Eluxolweni Primary School.

The tournament was divided into two divisions which was the under 12 and under 14. The under 12 finalists were Kukhanyile who beat Hopolang by 3 goals to nil.

In the under 14 finals Eluxolweni humiliated Kukhanyile, also routing them 1-0.

One of the tournament organisers, Dumisani Ntsodo, said they are hoping to unite young girls and the community at large by teaching girls football in a safe environment.

He said by doing this they want to protect the girls from the social ills they are faced with everyday. Most girls fall victim to crime because of non-participation in sport.
