OD Rugby Club

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts"  Winston Churchill

It has been another brilliant term of rugby, soccer, a cycle challenge, market days, learning, sharing and growing. 

What gets us up in the morning is being able to give our children a safe and supportive environment to learn new skills and access new opportunities.

This term, we partnered with the fantastic team at Capitec. Volunteers from Capitec's retail, marketing and financial education divisions gave up their time to run entrepreneurial workshops with our U13s each Friday afternoon. They worked through a series of marketing-related modules, which included creating a business idea, identifying needs and target markets, financial literacy and marketing a business.

Skills required to be an entrepreneur include hard work, effective communication and resilience after disappointment. We tested these skills, hosting VUSA's first Market Day in conjunction with our first 7s tournament at the Langa Sports Grounds. Shoprite / Checkers, as always, invested generously in the children's small business, as did Nomu. Our first Market Day was launched on 3 September, a freezing, rainy, windy day. The children gave it their all and, most importantly, had a fantastic time selling their wares, from pot plants to pancakes. Thank you to everyone who supported this event.
