A small group of Atlas boys and girls were recently treated to a training session on Fish Hoek Beach in Cape Town.  Coach Frank and Coach Xolani accompanied the children for a well-deserved outing and training session on the beach. A first for some of them.

With the beach only a few kms from their community of Masiphumelele and Ocean View, this outing was a major event in their lives.  Our coaches are brilliant at motivating and inspiring the youngsters. It has been encouraging to see the numbers climb in attendance and some of the boys who are normally seen roaming the streets are now coming through to practices.

With school rugby given the green light, Atlas continues to exercise strict protocol around Covid-19 compliance and has moved the daily ball skills practices from the community square back on to the rugby field at Masi High School (with its new rugby posts) and the good game of rugby is returning back in full flight.

Thank you to Coach Frank for the photos.
