2018 You miss 100% of the shots you dont take.

We begin this year with new Goals, new and old boys, but most importantly new Ideas.

U18’s Engine tournament was our first Challenge for this year.

Engen we had a close call where we nearly qualified for the main event and was worried as this team is made up 80% U16 born 2002 and 2003 with the main tournament being born 2000. The highlight being that in our group we did better than expected and were outclassed by Shumba who prepared their outfit for Bayhill with most players having 2-3 years experience playing this tournament. We beat UJ and Florida Albion and drew against ProAcademy.

Well Done : Coach Shifa and Coach Jabu.

The deliverables are that this players will have experienced what to expect where we work to compete for Discovery 2018 and Engen 2019.

This year looks like it will have more interesting events in store for us, below are our U13s that took part in the Pinaar Tournament.

We give thanks to our 1st team boys as their season draws to a close, may you stay safe, and always continue to persue your goals.

Midas participating and taking these boys out for a Daddy and son lunch, some boys dont have the privilege of having a father figure around them all the time, some of these boys need it on a daily basis and we are proud to have been a part of this event, for every boy needs his Father.

Our boys talent is beyond our control, they have it all, just not the equipment that they really need, below is a picture of their eveyday equipment.

Our thoughts and prayers are with one of our U17 players “speedy” Wakheem Lesar who was stabbed Saturday night who is recovering in hospital.

In our continuous efforts to try and give our boys the tools on looking after themselves after hours is our community’s problem. We really need to soften the blow of this life cycle.

2015 Looking beyond what we expect.

Update in 2014 we had a spectaular event,  I know we had a rough day but the boys from Midas Football Academy – Sports arm of Alchemy Sports and Recreation made our day just a little bit brighter. Well done: Blaid BekkerZiyaad FredericksWayne MujuruGerald Ndlovu These young men play in our U17 team that drew with the Golden Arrows Castle league team 0-0  you made us very proud guys.

2015 boys change an turned into men.

Watching these boys grow from U13- open team, opens our eyes to th point that we only have such little time to try and make a change in their lives, its challenging, it tests your patience and understanding but in the end, every single moment was worth it.

thank you for your continious support and contributions2015

2014 A new year with new sets of opportunities.

Karl Sebastian Clements making us proud again, being a feature on the Laduma website. I’m sad that they don’t mention that he came from us. When he went to Sundowns it was on loan from us. His true development happened at Midas Football Academy – Sports arm of Alchemy Sports and Recreation.

This year has had a great start and its going to be a year of opportunities for many others.2013 22013

This year, was a year of change, acceptance and learning.
The above pictures show the boys on the beach training, working hard to achieve and persue their dreams.
We have grown as a team, and will continue to grow, These boys have been given a chance to get away from the life they know, the life of alcohol, drugs, gangsterism, fighting etc.
Each step they take to training is a step closer to getting them out of their bad situations.
Each step they take to games is a step closer to a better future.
Each step they take to opportunities you provide for them by supporting them and helping us help them, gives them a chance in life to have hope.
Having hope will take many to a bigger and better place,  a place you helped provide for them.
Thank you for helping us and helping contribute to these boys .
