First sports skills workshop in Joburg – Alberton Record


Betway South Africa, in partnership with the Women in Sport Awards, held the inaugural edition of the #BetwayCares Skills Hub from February 23 to 25 at the Johannesburg Stadium.

The three-day workshop follows the brand’s announcement of its new and refined approach to its CSR programme, which will see Betway travelling the country in a bid to upskill community-based sports officials.

The first of many #BetwayCares Skills Hub workshops officially kicked off with an informative sports administration and leadership course for community-based female administrators.

The workshop covered critical topics such as financial management, sponsorship, public speaking and various styles of management.

Founder of the Footballing Girls NPO and Women in Sports Awards Moonira Ramathula expressed her gratitude to Betway for affording community-based women in sports a unique opportunity to be empowered.

“Today marks the conclusion of what has been a truly life-changing experience for these hardworking sports administrators. With the passion that they have for developing sports in their communities, accompanied by this course by Betway, we are excited to see the foreseeable change that they will be bringing within their respective communities,” said Ramathula.

“We appreciate the #BetwayCares Skills Hub initiative. Such a programme will allow our administrators to become even more effective and impactful in the development of community sport, which is not possible without the backing of caring brands such as Betway,” she said.

The delegates were joined by former national team captain and #BetwayCares Skills Hub ambassador Simphiwe Dludlu throughout the Betway-sponsored course. Dludlu, who addressed the participants on the importance of having trained administrators in communities, encouraged the women to make use of the knowledge gained from the #BetwayCares Skills Hub.

“It is exciting to see passionate administrators from different backgrounds sharing their insight and most importantly, finding solutions to the challenges faced in community sports. I would like to encourage the ladies to make use of the skills and knowledge acquired over the last three days, as this is something that community sport has needed for years.

“Thanks to the #BetwayCares Skills Hub, we can pinpoint the root cause of the challenges faced by our communities while also finding tangible solutions,” said the former Banyana Banyana star.

Betway will soon announce its next #BetwayCares Skills Hub workshop as it continues on its long-standing commitment to making an impact in sporting communities across the country.
