Today Blitz had games for the mentally and physically challenged people. One team was our Grunden of Soweto and the opponents were a team from Zola.

The plan was to play two sporting codes, namely football (7 vs 7)for boys and netball for girls.
The boys played a 15 minutes per half game where we (Grundens) won the game by 7-5.
But a game for girls did not happen because the Zola team did not come with them due to weather.
Since we at Blitz have an experience of making people have fun and we don't discriminate we organized a fun game where all the participants played a fun game.
They played a 3-triaangle point game. It was fun. The girls used hands (throwing) and the boys kicked the ball.
The Grundens were 12 (8 boys and 4 ladies) + 3 teacher/parents.
Zola team were 7 boys only.
All they were 19 participants and 3 teachers/Parents.
Duration of the games was 1 hour.
Both the teams requested us to continue to be part of them and help them to make and run their sports since they enjoyed time spent with us.
Blitz Academy of Sport cares for every human being whether they are disabled or orphans.

Blitz with Soweto Grunden Bois

The Grunden at school and in the field.

At 10h30am I (Wire) went to the school where the Grunden's of Soweto study and do hand work to collect them.
From the school to the field it only takes five (5) minutes.
We played fun games using handball balls from 11h00 am. They were 15 participants in all. Amongst they were 7 ladies and 8 men.
The games played for 50 minutes.
When time was up they wanted to continue to play and they wanted to play (steal the bip) that they were shown by Annika and Karl.
We played until 12h15 pm

Time to prepare next schoolprogram

The ladies were in our Women leader sports Training and they all got Certificates for finishing the training.
These ladies are from all from Soweto and they played sports. But now some can't play due to injuries and no stable leagues to participate in. Blitz has given them a chance to participate in sport again by teaching young women in Soweto that sport is the way of living positively.
They will be planning and running the school program that will run until the schools second term ends in June.

The board decided that the trained ladies must start the school program as soon as the second or third week of May.

We also decided to go to schools this week (3–5 may) to give them consent forms.
