This December kids have been given an exciting sporting experience as professional, qualified coaches headed into one of the largest townships in Cape Town to run football and netball training clinics.

Sponsored by CMTrading these clinics led by South Africa’s number one sports foundation and charity for children, Sporting Chance, had the eager children off the streets and on the sports grounds to hone their athletic skills. In total 65 kids joined the coaches at the Langa Stadium in Langa, tackling, shooting, dribbling and dodging their way to a fun time.

CMTrading was the official partner of the clinic which took place from the 12-14 December 2022, both bringing the kids, coaches and a community co-ordinator together and kitting them out in unique branded sports shirts to keep them looking their very best.

As part of CMTrading’s official community outreach program the event was a smash success with the children who enthused they would definitely be back next year. For all we know, today’s kids may one day be Cape Town City or Bafana Bafana superstars.

Jonathan Bergman, VP of Marketing at CMTrading, said: “We believe that trading is for everyone and likewise so is football. We want to give back to South African communities and what better way than to provide local kids with a safe, active environment in which they can enjoy soccer coaching? We hope to continue our programs and build strong bonds with local communities in the future. Most importantly, we hope each child has a lekker time at our coaching clinics.”
