Sports Academy, George (SAG)

Sports Academy has been operating in the townships of George, South Africa since 2008 and was founded by Wayne and Suzi McAfee who are part of CCV. The Academy was established as a direct response to the need for strong leaders and role models in under privileged communities. SAG uses sport as a tool to connect, teach and disciple young people that show talent and potential for leadership. In addition to sports they also run life skills classes, primary schools outreach, youth clubs and a One to One mentorship programme. Anyone visiting George this summer will have the opportunity to work in local schools, build relationship with the SAG elite players and share life with the Xhosa people of Thembalethu.
