After his son was apparently turned away at Western Province cricket trials because of team selection quotas, Somerset West parent, Willie realised the importance of educating young children about the need for sports transformation.
The disappointed 11-year-old later went on to be victorious in another capacity, however - with the help of his father - he wrote a speech on transformation in sports and won an international competition in his age category.
Willie called in to CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies to lament the lack of education on subject of transformation in sports:
What should I tell my 11-year-old to stop him from becoming bitter and angry? We need to sit our kids down and explain why a quota system is necessary in sport. Nobody is educating our kids and it is so so wrong.— Willie, Somerset West father
