Shane Adams, of Steenvilla in Steenberg, is coaching soccer for children at the social-housing complex.

He says he would like to include rugby and cricket but lacks the necessary gear.

The father of four says he completed a sports-management certificate at a nearby learning centre and is continuing to upgrade his skills.

Earlier this year, he received a computer-and-life-skills-training certificate from Where Rainbows Meet training centre (“Graduates bring back hope during pandemic,” Southern Mail, August 18).

Since then, he says, he has done a sports-nutrition course and is pursuing a social-worker course.

He is looking for turf or artificial grass that the children can play various sports on.
