The Growing Sports Foundation Trust has identified top talent from the ages of 10 to 18 at each of its centers. The idea is to take the young, talented sports players and have them become role models of excellence, diligence, and commitment for the youth population in the areas from which they come. This is especially significant as research shows that violence in youth is amongst the highest in the world today. These young children, who have the potential and desire to pursue tennis at an international level and represent South Africa abroad, are supported in the framework of a team.
The Victory Team includes boys and girls, selected from outstanding players in South Africa and other African countrys. The players are provided with the following:
- High level tennis instruction
- Mental training
- Fitness training
- Medical and Physical tests
- Social activities
- Support both as individuals and as a team
- National and international tournaments
Professional follow-up and feedback has been designed that will enable monitoring of each player’s progress.
