Maccabi hosted the Selwyn Segal team at the Sandton Action Sports Arena in Kramerville in collaboration with Forwardzone, whose team of coaches put the players through their paces with a variety of football drills. These skills will help prepare the team for the third annual Discovery Disability tournament to be held in August.

The residents proudly wore their new Selwyn Segal Eagles kit donated by Forwardzone. They also all went home with a new soccer ball, water bottle, and boot bags.

“Residents enjoy watching and playing soccer. It gives them a great opportunity to be active and stay healthy, while also providing a way to have fun” says Lara Milner from Selwyn Segal. “Earlier in the year, they went to watch Bidvest Wits play in the Premier Soccer League.”

Social responsibility and outreach is an integral part of Maccabi SA. “Maccabi has an important role to play in developing sport in the community, and utilising sport as a vehicle for social cohesion,” says Cliff Garrun, the Chairman of Maccabi SA. “Initiatives like this reflect the power of sport, and the value of partnerships.”

The relationship between Maccabi and Selwyn Segal started last year, with the U18 Maccabi Football team that went to the Maccabiah in 2017. The group of youngsters hosted several activities with the Selwyn Segal Eagles, and this will hopefully continue to grow into an important partnership for both organisations.
