TONGAAT Panthers Athletics Club remains committed towards the youth development programme.
The programme, which began last year continued this year with more than 30 enthusiastic children from Tongaat area attending every Wednesday.

The co-ordinator and the club secretary Ms Maharaj said: “We have noticed an age gap in our club, with members being in their early 40s and some in their late 70s.
“We need to attract the youth and get them more involved in sport. We are therefore committed to this programme and our aim is to get them to continue.

“The commitment and enthusiasm displayed by them is overwhelming. Their training bears fruit when they take part in the five-kilometre fun runs. They have become disciplined and fit, also keeping themselves out of mischief.”

An invite is once again extended to the youth to join the programme every Wednesday at 4pm from the Flambel Pool parking lot.
