A YOUTH development programme in the form of a sports and social club was launched in central Tongaat last week to keep children in the area involved in positive activities in their free time.

The newly formed Angels Park Sporting Club seeks to help the youth in the area around Angels Park and Gwalas Farm through positively influencing their lives with sport.

The programme headed by Devyn Narasimmuloo and Viggie Padayachee with the hope of affiliating to the SAFA Tongaat league this season.

Padayachee said since sport not only keeps people fit but promotes a healthy lifestyle and keeps people busy in their spare time with training and matches, they hope to use it to ensure children are on the right path.

“We have similar programmes with volleyball and soccer and we want to see these children reach their full potential,” said Padayachee. “It was also the children who approached us so that shows they want something like this in their lives.”

The club already has 30 members and they hope more youth will get involved.

Padayachee thanked everyone who has contributed to the programme including the ward councilor Michael Abraham and the Department of Sports and Recreation which donated sports equipment.

SAFA Tongaat President Kuga Padayachee said they welcomed teams to join the organisation in the promotion of sport and youth development in the community.

Padayachee also reminded teams to register for the 2016 season as registration has begun.

Anyone who wants to get involved in the programme can contact Padayachee on 0844455069.
