The program caters to boys and girls aged 6 to 13 years, aligning with the objective of creating the “Player of Tomorrow.” This grassroots approach is set to revolutionize youth football development in South Africa.

Partnerships and Player Development

Moira Tlhagale, Managing Director of MT Sports, highlighted the collaborative nature of the PMSS program. In partnership with schools, the focus is on training children within the educational institutions. Additionally, an independent model allows any child to participate, promoting inclusivity and accessibility.

The program targets children aged six turning seven within the next decade, with the ultimate aim of having participants contribute to national teams in the future.
