UniHigh recently launched a new sport, action soccer, and the team is already featuring in the first league they entered. The 30-minute fast-paced game allows only four players on the pitch during play. Each team can have up to two substitute players. UniHigh’s team entered the Hillfox Action Arena’s Soccer League and with 13 matches played, they feature in the log’s top ten.
The eight players are in Grades 10, 11 and 12. Although the sport is not commonly found in many of Krugersdorp’s schools, the pupils had a great interest in participating.
We are planning to launch action netball this month and are also looking to expand the action soccer team to two teams in the league next year. Matches are played every Sunday afternoon and supporters are always welcome!
Shown here are Rob Franklin, Tshepang Mamashela, Bradley Humphries, Revvan Cocking, Reinhard Bester, Dean Lloyd and Tlamelo Madonsela – ready as ever to represent UniHigh at action soccer
