Sports Development

The Steve Biko Foundation Sports Development interventions

  • SBF utilises sports as a tool to engage schools and communities while communicating positive messages around issues such as gender equity, substance abuse and healthy lifestyles;
  • SBF promotes the growth of community sports in order to foster leadership, sportsmanship and social cohesion;
  • SBF builds the organisational capacity of schools, clubs and community sporting councils through training in sports administration;
  • SBF hosts competitive tournaments as venues for talent showcasing and recruitment opportunities.

One of the platforms through which SBF achieves these objectives is through the annual Steve Biko Memorial Games.  Held in August and September of each year, the tournament encourages the development of skills in a variety of sporting codes, display existing talent and contribute to social cohesion. Participants include schools, clubs and community members, many of whom have been beneficiaries of SBF’s training and development interventions. Among the sporting codes included in the Steve Biko Memorial Games are:

  • Boxing
  • Netball
  • Road Running
  • Rugby
  • Soccer
  • Cycling
