WHAT IS THE ALEX YOUTH SPORT FESTIVAL?
While the main Arnold Classic Africa (ACA) event takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre and surrounding streets from Friday, 18 to Sunday 20 May 2018, the Altrec Community Sports Grounds in Alexandra will play host to the Alexandra Youth Festival, where teams in three different age categories will compete with their peers in sports like netball, football, Zumba, group aerobics, basketball, baseball, volleyball, darts, martial arts, rugby and hockey.
The intent behind it is to expand on the ACA event by facilitating mass participation and inclusivity for the youth of Alexandra and also target grassroots sport development by highlighting sports other than those the youth may be familiar with through school alone. Participants comprise schools and community clubs with children ranging in age from 12 to 18.
