Stefan's Sport fund

Personal message

My name is Michele Wiehahn, I am 46 years old and live in Paarl. I have set up a campaign for my 11year old son, Stefan.

My son Stefan is currently GR6 in Paarl Gymnasium and he plays hockey, rugby and cricket for his school's u/13 A teams.   He played for the Boland A (Foxies) indoor hockey team in 2017 (u/11 - they won Gold at Nationals) and also in 2018 (u/11 - they came 3rd at Nationals) He was now selected for the Boland u/13 IPT hockey team and was invited for trials for the Boland indoor hockey team.

During 2019 Stefan played in 5 x tournaments for his school in rugby and hockey and later this year also cricket, and that tournaments cost about R15 000. I am currently paying that off. The cost for Boland IPT and PSI indoor Hockey is R18 000.

We were informed on Sunday 28 April 2018 at the first IPT Hockey practice that we need to pay R4000 by 2nd of May 2019 and another R2000 by 20 May 20149. That commits you to pay the rest of the outstanding amount of R12 000. (kit included) The indoor Nationals are taking place 20 - 23 June 2019 in Cape Town and the IPT Hockey Nationals is taking place from 1 July - 5 July 2019 in Pietermaritzburg. I need to raise the R18000 before 15 June 2019.

The funds raised will be used as follow...
PSI Indoor Hockey Nationals - R3500
inc. tournament fees, kit, umpires and meals for 4 x days.
IPT Hockey Nationals - R11 000
Tournament fees, umpire fees, accommodation and meals
and flights to Pietermaritzburg/Durban and travel cost
IPT Hockey Nationals - R3500
Boland Hockey kit

This is the beginning of Stefan's hockey career and his Hockey profile for future references for High School and possible University application. His dream is to play hockey for South Africa and he is working very hard to reach that dream. This will define what sport he will do one day because without financial aid I will have no choice but to withdraw him from the Provincial National Tournaments (Indoor and Field Hockey}. I am a strong believer that sport is a way to balance your life with academics and to take sport away will tip the scale in the wrong direction. Placing a young energetic boy before a computer playing games or watching TV.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the Boland High School Hockey account*
