In creating a sense of pride and belonging, a local club has honoured the commitment of youngsters.

Fluid Football Club, based in Tafelsig held their first junior presentation on Saturday 24 November.

The club was established in 2009 as an initiative aimed at giving the youth a positive outlet. However, the club closed down due to unforeseen circumstances and was re-established this year under the name Fluid FC.

Situated in an area rife with gangsterism and crime, club president and founder Debbie Solomons started the club to keep children off the streets (“Team scores to win”, People’s Post, 14 August).

“The presentation was only merit awards as we only started this year and could not really determine player of the year and other positions,” says Wayne Meyers, club
chairperson.

“We wanted to reward all our juniors for their participation. All awards were handed out with trophies and certificates.”

Meyers says they look forward to creating more exposure for the club in the new year and getting more parent involvement.

“Sometimes there are players who do not know how to give back. We are calling on them to get on board. We still need more coaches. We are using youngsters but we need more experienced coaches,” he says.

“We will also focus more on the education of the children. We have not yet seen their results but it is something we must continue to work on. It is not only about playing soccer, it is also about good
academics.”

He adds that despite only being around for a short while, the club is performing well at tournaments.

The club is also calling on potential sponsors. They will also open intake of u.8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and seniors as well as coaches for all ages.

To get involved, call Solomons on 074 359 7384 or Meyers on 078 887 0473.
