The second team was invited to the 2017 Oakhill Waterfront Chukka Festival from Thursday the 16th to Sunday the 19th of February. This is the fifth year that the festival has taken place, and is one of the only open-water water polo festivals of its kind in Africa. It was a good experience for the whole team as we learnt new skills and found more courage and strength in ourselves than we knew was there! Although we did not not win any matches (most of which were against 1st teams and ‘A’ teams from across the country), we gained experience and trust from the other members of our team. We have grown stronger throughout the festival and we showed it through our determination. I could not have been more proud of the team as we remained humble and kept our heads high as we continued to cheer and kept our spirits up throughout this unique festival.

Thank you to Ms Johannes and our coach, Nicole, who supported us through everything and kept us smiling. Thank you to our parents who sacrificed to allow us the privilege of going on tour and to our sponsors, Alphen Tree Services (Hansen family) and the Meyer family, thank you SO much for the amazing sponsored kit that made us look and feel so special!
