Sporting Code will host a tournament featuring five-a-side soccer and netball at Mkhaya Smart Park on Saturday.

“ We are expecting 16 teams for soccer and 8 teams for netball .The games will begin at 10 but teams are expected to be there an hour early so that we may structure how the day is going to work,” said organiser Ayanda Cuba.

Cuba explained that Sporting Code has a wider vision of creating and hosting educational outings, sports tournaments, coaching clinics and leagues for schools, communities and businesses.

His partner Buntu Matole added that theyaim to provide structured sporting systems that will allow communities, schools and corporates to use sports as a way to connect, grow and create a healthy, happy and active society.

“Currently, most of our programs are primarily geared towards building young people’s mental and physical capacity, unlocking their potential and and ensuring that talented students get the chance and the platform to showcase their skills,” he said.

One of their major projects right is to fundraise to build a sportsfield at Chumisa Primary School.

“This initiative is born out of the need to have proper sport fields in the township schools,” said Cuba.

“ We believe that sport is key to any child’s development and helps create an environment that can improve their communicational skills and discipline, strengthen their physical and mental muscles, and help them grow into tomorrow’s leaders,” he added.
