Cape soccer school pushes kids to aim high

Capetonian Rameez Behardien is inspiring local youth to have big dreams through his RB6 Soccer School.

Behardien is an amateur football player who strayed in to the corporate world before finding his way back to his first love.

He became a private coach at various soccer clubs in Cape Town and then decided to form Rondebosch-based RB6 five years ago.

He now uses his passion for the game to help motivate young children and develop their skills and has trained nearly 300 youngsters so far.

The school is open for anyone and the youngest child is four-years-old says Behardien.

He advises that RB6 teaches both soccer skills and life skills to its enthusiasts and hopes to add academic coaching soon.

With these skills we're able to build competent sportspeople and self-confident individuals, which is the bigger picture.

Behardien explains that 10 of his Under9 boys squad have been invited to attend the IberCup 2017 in Spain this July.

Two of school's young pupils, Achmat Behardien (Captain) and Selwyn Stevens (Junior), also shared their love for the sport and RB6.
