Alternative action sports 

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!



  

I2B Year End Skim Jam 2017
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!

Over the school holiday we had a rollerblade only competition for the I2B clubs and the Cape Town locals.

Myself and Moose (our I2B surf coach) visited another surfing NGO in Muizenberg to connect with them and to see how they run their surf programs.

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!

I2B Cloeteville club
Our I2B Cloetesville turnout has been especially large the last couple of weeks. 



While still waiting for permission to start building their concrete park, we are maintaining the rail and cement area on which the kids can practice their skills.



Our older skaters have been really loyal and have continuously set a very good example to the other young club members.



A day in the life of an I2B Skate Coach...



I2B Kleinvlei Club
We recently fixed I2B Kleinvlei club's skate rail. 



The club members also started building a skate box (on their own!) and I came to help with the final touches.



Ultimate X skateboards sponsorship
We are really grateful for the cool new skateboards that were donated to the I2B kids.



Kogel Bay skim outing
Friends, Gareth and Dylan, flew down all the way from Nelspruit to join us at a skating competition in Cape Town. They also joined our skimboarding club and we decided to make the club session extra special by taking everyone to Kogel Bay for a skim. Out of everyone there, our dogs most probably enjoyed it the most!

 



I2B Surfing

Moose and his I2B Surfing crew have been surfing really hard. His team has also recently started coaching kids from Bright Lights safehouse. The children have really grown very fond of their new sport and new mentors.

Maties Para-Athletics Camp
We invited the schools from Western Province to join our annual camp. We had just under 20 athletes who joined. 



It was great to spend time with the athletes and to see their enthusiasm.

New I2B athletes
Nur has been looking for a guide for quite some time and Clinton was keen to start guiding an athlete... and so, the two joined forces. I am really excited to see this duo competing at Nationals!

Exterra Warriors - Grabouw
Inspired 2 Become partnered with other ogranisations and entered groups for an endurance competition in Grabouw - the groups focussed on swimming, cycling and trail running.



Visiting Vergenoegd Primer and Olifantsriver Centre
Myself, Thabo and Karin visited Vergenoegd Primer and Olifantsriver Centre for Persons with Disabilities. We shared our stories with the awesome kids and on the same day we went to Vredendal to plan a disability sport awareness day.







Educational Therapy by Jami

Starting therapy
The children at Raithby Primary were very eager to start therapy again and we believe that good things lie ahead for all of them this year.

  

Ethan and Aldorico wrote down their dreams for the year and afterwards they composed a short rap and beat-box about it!
