aturday 3 December 2022 marked a significant first for LU4C. 50 learners from 5 schools within, and outside of Cape Town (Dietrich Moravian, Eastville, Arrieskraal, Tandfontein and Ezelfontein) participated in our inaugural LU4C Sports Day. The mini tournament at the Montague Arena, consisted of Action Soccer games, leading up to a nailbiting final. The day started with a very brief welcome for the players and their teachers, as the teams were pumped for their games from the time they arrived. After a biokineticist-approved pre-game breakfast, the tournament kicked off. Looking very “Pro” in their LU4C game t-shirts (courtesy of our title sponsors Protea Toyota) the learners played up a storm and were about as competitive as any Premier League team.
While the learners were having fun in the arena, Ricardo and Duncan from The Run Lab SA , facilitated a workshop for the educators to guide them in developing their own programs for movement activities to be implemented back at their schools. The tournament ended with a medal and prizegiving ceremony. By this time everyone had worked up very hefty appetites and were ready to dig into their KFC lunch. All players went home with a LU4C goodie bag consisting of 5 pairs of school socks, a stationery pack, and a LU4C waterbottle. We are eternally grateful to our sponsors for helping to make the day a success: • Title Sponsor – Protea Toyota.
