Beneficiaries Make Provincial Hockey Teams

Nothing can beat the proud feeling that parents get based on the success of their children. United Through Sport is extremely proud of Kyra, Storm, Numaan and Kaylin for making the provincial teams in their respective age groups in hockey. Kyra and Storm both made the Eastern Province (EP) U/13 “A” side, with Numaan in the “C” team, while thirteen year old Kaylin made the EP U/14 “A” side.

All four of the children are in the Senior School of Excellence program where they received scholarships to top schools in Port Elizabeth. Coming from disadvantaged schools, it has been a joy for them to play in the best facilities this year where they can capitalize on their talents. Not only did they make the EP teams, but they have proved to be the star players in their school teams, for both their hockey skills as well as their shining personalities.

Kyra, Storm and Numaan are at St George’s Preparatory School and Kaylin is doing her first year at Pearson High School. Kyra has dreams of playing for her beloved country, with a back-up plan of a medical career to please her parents. Also with dreams of playing for South Africa, Storm will settle for coaching the SA team if he cannot make it. His second dream is to be a pilot- so he can fly the team across the world. Numaan would love to represent his country in either hockey or soccer, or play for his favourite soccer team- Barcelona. If the sport career does not work out for him, he wants to be a lawyer when he grows up. Kaylin wants to be a teacher when she finishes school, but her biggest dream is to play for South Africa.

UTS is excited to have such ambitious members in the team, wishes them all the best in their new EP teams and as always we will be there to support them in every way possible!

“I am so happy that I will be representing my province when we play against children from all over South Africa and I am excited about the tours coming up. Today we got some hockey goodies from UTS, and I don’t think any other kids have these hockey sticks!”- Kyra, 12 years old
