Sporting Chance is a leading sports coaching and development organisation in South Africa. Sport is able to break down barriers of generations, cultures, race and income levels, and on this basis Sporting Chance uses it as a vehicle to positively impact children’s lives.
The programmes aim to contribute to the communities surrounding the shopping centres through life skills education and participation in sport which keeps children occupied in a positive activity and away from social ills during the school holidays.
The programmes consist of three phases: life skills training, coaching clinics, and a sporting tournament. The programmes take place over four days, and are held at the shopping centre in the community or at the community sports fields.
70 holiday programmes have taken place since 2015 accommodating over 8 700 children aged between 9 and 13 years.
