Congratulations to two of our Canoe Polo players who have been selected to represent the Canoe Polo Junior Development Tour at the Canoe Polo Junior International Championships (JIC) in Belfast, Ireland in July 2023.  The Championships take place every second year where as many as 80 teams from all over the world compete against each other.Mia Verster (16) and Etienne Pieterse (16) were selected for the U18 A team for their respective categories.  Both Mia and Etienne are pupils at Hoërskool Linden and started playing Canoe Polo in January 2022. These youngsters are quite passionate about their new found sport and cannot get enough of it!Players have to provide their own funding to attend the Development Tour, so financial support will be welcomed. Please contact Caren at the Dabulamanzi Canoe Club Office at info@dabulamanzi.co.za should you like to contribute.The canoe polo players have a few fundraising initiatives planned over the course of the next few weeks. The funds raised will be used to cover travelling costs to the SA Champs in Knysna in March.  The first fund raising event will be at the Gauteng Trials which will be held at Dabz on Sunday 5 February.  Please support them.
