What Is Inspiration.

There are levels to inspiration, one to have a dream, two looking up to a role model, three completing the story, and four having people believe the way we believe in what we are doing.

These boys are inspired by a dream of being a professional soccer player, they look up to professionals seen  on TV all over the world, they try to complete their story each day they pitch up for training and for games, but they are also inspired by their parents, coaches, management staff and sponsors because we believe as they believe.

What am I getting at may be the question you are asking right now, I’m  trying to show you that the more support we have the more boys will be motivated to do more than what is expected.

Motivation leads to more than just becoming something  in your dream, motivation creates discipline, creative minds, outstanding behavior, self-confidence, and most definitely guides a boy to becoming a man, that’s only something that any parent would wish for.

Every wish comes with the will to do it, and we wish we could help these boys more than we are doing now, we just need your will power to help us, unfortunately everything comes with a price and we need your help make price become a dream come true.

Thank you.

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.

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
