Real estate group Tyson Properties recently teamed up with Ballers Soccer Club to give young boys and girls in Johannesburg the chance to take their football skills to the next level.
The company co-sponsored a soccer clinic at the Pirates Club in Greenside for boys and girls in the U6 to U12 age groups. The five-day soccer camp provided an opportunity for young players to get expert coaching through a specialised programme using the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar as inspiration.
Chris Tyson, managing director of the company based in Magaliessig, Sandton, said the company was keen to see youngsters given an opportunity to hone their skills and further their football talents. “Involving ourselves with communities in which we sell and rent properties, and investing in the well-being of the people in these areas is important to us,” Tyson said.
He added that as the company had recently broadened its horizons in Gauteng, it was a good time to extend its ongoing successful Cape Town soccer school sponsorship to Johannesburg.
The Cape-based soccer school runs all year-round training for children in the U4 to U14 age-group categories. Owner and founder Liam Shirley said, “It’s designed to instil confidence in youngsters’ soccer ability.
“It is an all-inclusive programme for children of all abilities that focuses on helping them leave our sessions with increased confidence.”
