The long term goal of Project Shosholoza is fixed on establishing an on-going program of year round player development, providing intensive training of players pursuing professional sports careers.
The development program relies on the services of a team of professionally licensed coaches, and experienced executives, focussed on developing and placing players internationally within the top ranks of professional clubs in Europe.
Also fundamental is our partnering with other social enterprises that can provide support to the organization in fostering an all around program of health, nutrition and educational development for our players.
This includes medical staff, nutritionists, physiotherapists, biokineticists and educators that work in tandem with the development staff exposing the players to alternative careers in sports through presentations, counseling and mentoring.
A set training program and schedule, includes weekly training sessions (adjusted for age categories), beginning in September and progressing toward the start of competitive play, generally beginning in the month of January.
Trainings are held at our three training facilities, in the suburbs of Cape Town, with access to natural and artificial turf playing fields, evening lighting and changing room facilities.
An integral part of the program is a system of initial and continuing player evaluation. Player development is monitored utilising a player evaluation application running on individual coach’s smartphones.
The app is used to collect player performance data onto a central cloud-based database, where tracking performance and progress can be accessed via a player dashboard.
The Player Evaluation App (Futeval+) is also able to “score” each player dynamically and create rankings or ratings for each player. The app also generates Player Reports.
Which can provide information on the player’s physical attributes, contact details, club history, photos and links to personal video highlights, as well as breakdowns on his or her scores on aspects of their technical, tactical and psychometric
