Inspired2Become - youth reaching their full potential

What we do every month to get the youth inspired! 

Alternative action sports
-Skimboard clinics over the school holidays-
The kids loved being able to do a water-sport on the beach without having to go into the deep waters. The parents appreciated it that we gave their kids these fun and uplifting activities to do on the beach. I2b joined up with Handsdown to do skimboard clinics at two major events on the coastline:

The Mr. Price Pro in Durban

The Wedge Classic in Plettenburg Bay

-Partnership with Pebbles Project- Pebbles is an organisation that works with children from the wine farms. They will be bringing a group of kids to the Stellenbosch skatepark every second Thursday where I2B will do dance, skateboard and rollerblade classes with them. They loved the first session! Thanks Reagan and Alice, who will be doing the dance classes.

- Skim club go surfing- Son Surf Strand was really generous to let our guys join in on a free surfing lesson. The guys enjoyed it lots. Thanks to Mikhail from Son Surf, check out their website:

Athletics for youth with disabilities 
-Preparation for 2012 London -
Fanie and the rest of the SA paralympic athletes are busy doing a tour through Europe competing in some international competitions. They will also visit the stadium in London as part of their prep for 2012 Paralympics.

Fanie had really good races in Leverkusen, Germany. In Singen he missed the World Record in his 200m race with 0.02s.

In Switzerland they had the opportunity to see the Rheinfall waterfalls. Fanie will be back beginning of August to carry on with his coaching.
