September 30 was the end of term 3 at PPI-SA. As schools prepare to go on break, the PPI-SA staff is planning the upcoming 27th City Wide Tournament. As many will know, the City Wide in June was cancelled due to the weather. However, the team at PPI-SA decided to host a bigger, better 27th City Wide Tournament in October. Preparations for the tournament are already in full swing. With the Culture Care Kids First Foundation coming on board to be a major funder for the tournament alongside the Laureus SA Foundation, it promises to be a bigger and better tournament.

Here are some highlights from term 3:

  • Six PPI-SA participants and coordinators travelling to Cyprus for the PPI Lead for Peace Summer Camp.
  • The Champions for Peace LDP Girls team travelled to Pietermaritzburg for the Annual Pietermaritzburg Girls High Invitational Tournament for the first time in PPI-SA history.
  • Coach Yamkela & Sno travelled to Cape Town to facilitate basketball clinics in partnership with Beyond Sport. PPI-SA is excited for this partnership and any future projects with Beyond Sport.
  • PPI-SA Veteran Coach Sifiso, travelled to Turkey to coach and facilitate at the Jump Basketball Camp.
  • PPI-SA coaches have worked tirelessly all term to ensure the sessions in schools take place. Themes that were covered this term were:
    • Teambuilding
    • Check on goals
    • My community
    • Inclusion and Trust
    • Peer Influence and Positive peer pressure

    Thank you to all the coaches, schools and participants for a wonderful term. We look forward to term 4 and the 27th City Wide Tournament!
