Netball

The netball project aims to improve the lives of school girls in Jonkershoek.  We believe that a holistic approach is important to develop a successful person in society.  Our rounded approach includes emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social and physical aspects of the girls.

After weekly netball practices we have life skills sessions to share positive life values and practices. Our youth team is part of the Boland Netball league, which runs from February to August.  This develops netball skills, as well as giving a different perspective to specific life skills; such as problem solving, discipline and team work.

How to get involved:

  • Volunteer on Mondays and Wednesdays (16:00 – 18:00)
  • Old takkies (trainers)/shoes and clothing
