This is a massive accomplishment for the woman’s team; the academy and the Knights’ players as they are encouraged to study a qualification whilst they are part of the club. The Knights receive funding from SAQA for their studies, and the academy and woman’s team receive an amount from Cricket South Africa.
As part of the partnership, we have also signed an MOU where students will be allowed to do shadow work with coaches and conditioners. They will part take in conducting NPR tests at a provincial level. One selected student will work closely with the CEO of Free State Cricket – Mr Johan van Heerden, where they will work with the lottery project run by CSA, and they will be given the full spectrum of marketing within the sporting sector, they will also help organize their annual dinner and famous golf day.
