Kamal Ramburuth-Hurt: Chairperson of Wits Hockey Club -

This year the Wits Hockey Club will initiate the first of what is to become an annual development initiative aimed at developing hockey at a grass roots level

The programme for this project consists of two days of world class coaching during a weekend camp in September 2017.

During this weekend 50 young players aged between 12 and 13 years old- who play at hockey clubs in economically disadvantaged communities- will be coached by passionate provincial and national level players at the Wits Hockey stadium.  Our goal is to grow the skills base of these young athletes, as well as their confidence and love of the game.

It is our wish that this initiative grows, into a sustained project, that can include more young athletes. The weekend camp is the start of our club’s engagement in empowering young hockey players.
