 I2B and CSA updates

What we've been doing to inspire the youth....


Alternative action sports by Chris

 

Surf4Life Competition

We are super proud of the I2B Strand Surf club members for winning first prize at the Surf4Life competition that was held at Strand! 



Thank you to our surf coach and mentor, Moose, for all the hard work you put in and the way you support the kids. We really appreciate you.



Thank you also so much to Penny and her team from Surf4Life for organizing such a cool event!

Palmiet skimboarding camp
We took our Gordon's Bay and Strand skimboarding clubs on a weekend camp at Palmiet Caravan Park a while ago.





Even though the skim waves were quite big, it did not stop our brave skimmers from charging it!



We also had some fun in the nearby Palmiet river where we put up a skim rail.



I2B Gordon's Bay Skate
We recently started a skating club at Temperance Town, Gordon's Bay. We put up a rail for the skaters to start practicing their grinds and are hoping to get permission from the local counsel to put up a skatepark for the kids in future.



Shred sessions
Once a month we take seven of our top rollerbladers for a rollerblade session at the Shred Skatepark. A definite highlight for all of us!



Bonteheuwel club
The I2B Bonteheuwel club is doing really well. Thanks to our club coach, Reagan Davids, for doing such a great job with the kids!

2018 SA Champs for Physically Disabled
Inspired 2 Become partnered with SCAS and Made for More at the 2018 SA Champs for the Physically Disabled in Bloemfontein. 



We had a chill room where we could build relationship with the athletes. We served refreshments, shared stories and just had loads of fun with the many different games we played!



I also coached some of the Western Cape sprinters who competed at the Champs!



Sinaletho's guide
Thank you Soph-Mari from SCAS for being Sinaletho's guide at the 2018 SA National Championships.

I2B Year End Cup 2017

It was great to end 2017 off with a bang at the annual I2B Year End Cup!



Members of the different I2B club had the opportunity to competed against each other as well as against competitors from other areas. We are extremely proud of all the hard work our I2B club members put in during the year and we look forward to what 2018 has in store!

We also held our annual I2B Year End Skim Jam in Camps Bay. The weather was perfect, the waves were good and we had loads of fun!





Surfing event
Our I2B Surf Coach, Moose, took the I2B groms to a surfing competition in Muizenberg. It was great for them to interact with other surfers and overall it was a pretty amazing day!

It's an I2B Skim Day
Our "It's an I2B Skim Day" was held in Pringle Bay during the school holiday.



We had perfect, sunny weather and icy, blue water!



Holiday Program at Raithby
During the June school holidays Inspired 2 Become joined Teacher Kathy's holiday program in Raithby. I2B did some skating and dancing activities with the children.


 
Thank you Teacher Kathy for your love for the children - you are a true inspiration!

It's an I2B Day, July 2017
We held another "It's an I2B Day" at the I2B Skatepark and, as always, the skaters took out their best tricks and wowed the crowd!

Closing gathering
We celebrated the end of the school term with our club athletes.

Exam time
Anika and I helped Paul (one of our I2B athletes) to study during his exams.

Fun weekend for the athletes

We held a fun weekend for the I2B athletes from Pioneers school and the children from the Youth Center in Stellenbosch.



The evening before the sport and braai day, we held a sleep-over for the athletes.



We are really grateful to everyone who helped to make this weekend possible!



Alternative action sports 

Reagan is going places
I2B Bonteheuwel club leader, Reagan, is busy with a bricklaying course at Northlink College. Reagan has been one of the most consistent and loyal I2B skaters and we believe that he will reach great heights in the future!

Thank you to those individuals who have also been supporting Reagan through the years.



Expansion of I2B Park
We finally moved all the steel frames into the skatepark. The next steps are to move the fence and set up these ramps.



New I2B shirts
The I2B skimboarders are very excited about their new I2B shirts!

Career preparation
Paul is an up and coming I2B athlete who is approaching his final year of primary school.



A career preparation organization is currently helping and guiding Paul with some important decisions that lie ahead. The organization does consultations, assessments and workshops to help individuals gain a better understanding of themselves while equipping them with practical information about subjects, requirements, courses and career opportunities. 



CP National Conference
I2B Coach, Fanie van der Merwe, and Dyan Buis were invited to speak about their sporting careers and achievements at the National CP Conference in Milnerton, Cape Town.





Educational Therapy by Jami van der Merwe

Further improvements
After a series of events, where the therapy room at Raithby was vandalized, we decided that it is time to put up another black board. The children were all very excited about the new addition to the room!
