Shield Sbonis’ Idiski: Durban shows off its diski
The sunny city of Durbs welcomed us as contestants came out from all areas to take their shot at the ultimate prize - a chance to train like Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge. The sun was shining, energy levels were up and a great day of soccer was had!
A skills session, with some of the coaches, kicked the day off. From there, it was every man for himself as each player gunned for a place in the Top 5 and a place in the finals. Our head coach, Dr Mnandi, drilled it into our players that in order to achieve success you need to have the fundamentals perfected. He also let it be known that players shouldn’t just shine individually, they should use their skill to contribute to the team they’re playing for.
After a gruelling day of diski skills, fitness and exercises, the Top 5 who made it through were:
Quads Roskruge, Philani Khawula, Cebani Khathi, Sthembiso Khumalo, Zamani Ntuli
Good luck to Durban’s top 5 taking part in the finals next month in Pretoria! You’ve got a once in a lifetime opportunity to take your diski skills to Cobham and train like the Premier League champs, Chelsea FC!
Shield - It won’t let you down.
