Athlete Leaders and coaches from special schools in the Northern Cape assembled at Learamele Special School from the 17-18 May 2014 for the training. One of the athlete leaders shared his gratitude and shared the following: “Firstly I would like to thank the Special Olympics South Africa for the opportunity they gave us and I am truly grateful. The training was good and it also gave us an opportunity to show our creativity.” The participants were exposed to the theory and practical side of floor hockey. Kedi Mabutlwane said she found the training interesting especially on the competition and divisioning side. The athlete leader also added:”Although this sporting code seems so challenging, especially for first time trainers everyone was eager to learn and participate.”
