A little rain could not stop the eight teams of young girls who are developing their soccer skills.

As part of their youth development initiatives, the Cape Flats YMCA held the u.13 winter tournament at Eisleben Road Primary on Saturday. Eight teams from the area participated in the one-day tournament.

Primary schools who participated are Eisleben Road, AZ Berman , Littlewood, Rocklands, Beacon View, Highlands, Northwood and Cape Flats which was made up of children from Parkhurst, Wavecrest and Mitchell’s Plain primary schools.

This was the third tournament. This initiative was first implemented on Saturday 23 September last year by Cape Flats YMCA director, Ricardo De Ruek, to develop primary school girls within the sporting sector and to keep them active in a positive way, giving them a drive for a future without social ills.

The second Y-Justice Summer Girls’ Soccer Tournament was held at Eisleben Primary School on Saturday 10 March (“Summer girls’ tournament held”, People’s Post, 20 March).

The winners of this tournament were Beacon View, with runners up Rocklands and Littlewood. The plate section winners were Cape Flats.
