Scientific research shows that children of the same age develop (mature) at vastly different rates. There are early developers, who have a physical advantage and there are late developers, who have the same potential but only develop at a later age.

Time to vote for the BEST SCHOOL SPORTS PIC FOR THE MONTH OF MARCH!

A new survey suggests a majority of schools now opt for events without individual winners but some parents aren’t keen – and perhaps they may have a point.

“You pays your money and you takes your choice,” wrote Mark Twain in 1884 at the end of Chapter 28 of Huckleberry Finn.

5 Top Reasons why Youths Drop out of Sport

We have all seen that young learner at school who displays tremendous talent and as we look on we can only imagine where will his talent take him in the sport. Many of course never fulfil the expectations that are sometimes prophesied about some player who shows promise and that is to be expected. What is sadder perhaps is that some, in fact a growing majority seem to drop out of sport for a variety of reasons.

Little With A Big Eye on Junior Dusi Crown

By FNB Dusi Canoe Marathon standards the 2017 junior boys race contenders have snuck under the race’s radar with no single paddler putting their hand up until an impressive Campbell’s to Dusi Bridge performance from Stewart Little saw him rise to the top of pretenders to the boy’s throne.

For a parent and a young player it could be the most frustrating aspect of school sport when it appears that a coach has his “special” players which he tends to favour.

Landslide Result for Oldest Field in SA

With over 17 000 votes cast in their favour which garnered them 60% of the vote it is once again Piley Rees of Bishops that takes the popular vote for the Best School Sports Arena in the country.

By popular demand we are going to host another poll to determine Where is The Best School Sports Arena in South Africa for 2016.


Each year this poll enjoys a tremendous amount of response as thousands from around the country cast their vote as to which school has the Best School Sports Arena in the country.

In 2013 it was “The Rec” at Queen’s College that took the honors and in 2014 it was the turn of Piley Rees at Bishops who by a clear majority was voted as the best in SA with The Rec taking second spot and in 2015 Piley Rees edged out The Graveyard of Dale College.

Architecture, ambiance, history are all important criteria when it comes to choosing which arena is the best but the roar of the crowd can do more for a sporting arena that almost anything.

There is something about a school field or pool or court that will always hold memories that never fade but seem to grow brighter and perhaps bigger with each passing year. Yes maybe that wingers sprint to score the winning try was only 20 metres and the result of a dodgy pass, but for us it was all of 50 metres, in slow motion, mud kicking up behind him, time suspended as we stopped breathing and in that one moment, that scene, that noise yes that sports field was permanently etched into our minds with such clarity that many years in the future we would be able to recall it as if it has just happened.

The School Sports Arena is a special place, a place of great jubilation, of disappointment but more importantly a place that will always belong to us like a home that we long to revisit.

So which school will take the honors in 2016?

Brookes, Goldstones, The Rec, Markotter, The Main Reds, Stott, Brug Street, Memorial A and so many more are part and parcel of South African School Sport. Which is your favourite field? Let us know and vote for it now on our poll

Rugby: St Charles - 33.5%
Tennis: Crawford Sandton - 3.7%
Cricket: SACS High school 1st team - 8.7%

How to be a Better Sports Parent

Hundreds of college athletes in the USA were asked to think back: "What is your worst memory from playing youth and high school sports?"

There is a concept in the psychology literature called ‘identity foreclosure’, which refers to cases in which someone settles on an identity too soon. In the current sporting climate at schools, there is a real danger of this happening to our most talented young sportsmen and women.
