THE Northern Cape women’s provincial SAPS soccer team went on a training camp last week and departed for Port Elizabeth on Saturday (08/08) to play in the SAPS National Championship.

Soccer teams from all provinces will take part in this championship. Trials were held in the Northern Cape and a team of ladies were selected in April. This team went on to play in the inter-provincial tournament that was held in Bloemfontein during June.

“The championship is also part of celebrating women’s month,” said Const. Peter Horing, Chairperson of the Provincial Executive Committee in the Northern Cape.

“Playing soccer provides these police members with stress-relief and gets them away from their normal policing duties. It also promotes fitness among the women in blue,” he continued.

On Wednesday (05/08) the soccer team took part in a roadblock held on the Vryburg road near Mothibistad.

While the police from Kuruman conducted stop and search procedures, the ladies from the soccer team handed out pamphlets to motorists.

The pamphlets contained important facts about police response to domestic violence. Domestic violence refers to unlawful acts performed by a person against others in a domestic relation-ship.

These acts include physical abuse, sexual abuse, intimidation, and damage to property.

The pamphlet also explains how police respond to domestic violence.

The Northern Cape women’s provincial soccer team SAPS were in a happy mood while distributing the pamphlets. They were all looking forward to their tour to Port Elizabeth
