Ikasi Soccer School – Khayelitsha

What a deserving group of young ladies, who were the recipients of Qhubeka Bicycles on 14 February 2019.  These young ladies were not only eager to learn the safety rules of the road, but when they received their bicycles they rode off in single file, helmets on and were delighted with their bicycles.  Behind these talented young ladies are 5 coaches who dedicate their time and skills to enhance the girls soccer skills.  Good to see the young ladies using their bicycles to get to practice sessions.  We will definitely be following this talented Ikasi Soccer School.
