SAAYC and TUPS to invest in youth leadership


October 2019 will go down the history as the beginning of a formal and official collaboration between South African Association of Youth Clubs (SAAYC) and TUPS Sport Federation. According to Mr Jeff Mkhwanazi, the National Director of SAAYC the official collaboration with TUPS Sport will enhance programmes offered to young people. Sealing and signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two organisations took place at SAAYC headquarters in Randburg. TUPS Sport was represented by the Inventor of TUPS sporting code

Coincidentally the signing ceremony took place a day after a successful National Big Walk Northern Cape chapter event held in Kimberly where TUPS sporting code was demonstrated and experienced by the Northern Cape community.  Mmotla indicated that the MOU signed with SAAYC includes TUPS taking leading role the face of SAAYC in provinces and countries where the new sporting code gained traction.

“We have the added advantage of being a sporting code that requires less resources to set-up and operate in any community and any environment, rural or urban. Basically any community can have a daily running TUPS club with a minimum investment in a form of a crown (the enabling equipment), 2 set of bibs, a ball and whistle. TUPS pitch can be drawn at any flat surface where a 50cm digging will be done to bury the base of the crown onto the round” explained Mmotla

He added that representing SAAYC in provinces where the national body does not have a firm footprint will help to catapult TUPS into a national service delivery organisation faster than anything else could do.

“SAAYC is one of the organisations that takes the lead in capacitating youth clubs. Every TUPS Club is first a youth club, or should make a provision for youth development and must benefit from massive capacity building benefits that comes with becoming a member of SAAYC” added Mmotla

Mmotla said the first port of call for the partnership with SAAYC is the annual National Youth Camp which will is organised in Port Shepstone, Kwazulu-Natal from 02 to 06 December 2019.

Taking cue from Mmotla, Mr Jeff Mkhwanazi of SAAYC said the MOU will give SAAYC a firm footing in the Eastern, Western and Northern Cape provinces where TUPS has full functional provincial structures and recognised presence.

“SAAYC will also support the TUPS Provincial Roadshow for Northern Cape which is expected to impact all major towns of the province starting in Kimberly, Groblershoop, Postmansburg, Kathu, Diben and Kuruman” concluded Mkhwanazi
