Passion: Show that soccer is very close to your heart and that very little can replace it. With everything you do, do it with utmost effort and go over the top with yourself. Good should not be enough! I want, I can and I must!
Team spirit: Success is a team effort and only as teams are we strong. So: Everybody else in the team is as important as you are. Encourage yourself and do as much as you can to help others. Engage yourself and show interest in your team colleagues.
Openness and honesty: Trust can only thrive through openness and honesty! No confidence, no unity; no unity, no team spirit; no team spirit, no success.
Communication: Be open for discussions, mention your ideas and raise your objections and feelings calmly at the right point of time. You should listen to your teacher, trainer and coach or teammates if they talk to you, express criticism or praise you. Only this way you can improve yourself! Good communication is the heart of a team!
Take your chances: Open your eyes, stay awake and be alert at all times - within a split-second an excellent pass might come your way to create a chance to score a goal! Take the golden and exceptional opportunity and make use of the education and training the SKW offers!
Pleasure doing things: "Also with stones put in your way you can build something beautiful" (Goethe). So, have fun with whatever you do, think positive. Only with motivation and trust in your own achievements excellent results can be expected!
Carpe diem: Time is money and expensive. Utilize yours and that of those around you wisely and judiciously. Always be on time and with full engagement whether in training or in a game, at school or with education. Carpe diem! - utilize the day!
Discipline: Stick to the relevant rules, to the benefit of the club, the team and at the end of the day for your own benefit.
Fair play: Of course we as "SKW" would like to win the league and tournaments, but never to the disadvantage of fair play. Respect the rights of others, those of the opponent and challenger; make exclusively use of your talent, strong will and team spirit to conquer your competitor.
Respect and self-esteem: Respect and appreciate behavior, opinion and attitude of teammates, referees, coaches, trainers and opponents irrespective whether you go accord with them
SPORT Klub Windhoek (SKW) will host its annual youth soccer tournament at its sports grounds in Olympia this coming weekend.
The co-ordinator of the SKW Youth Soccer Academy, Klaus Otto, said they were overwhelmed with interest in this year’s tournament that begins on Friday evening and will end on Sunday afternoon.
“We had many requests from teams that would have liked to enter, but unfortunately because of space and time constraints this was not possible. We have entered teams into this competition that offer youth soccer from under-9 up to under-17.” Notable participants include Swakopmund Football Club (SFC) and the Otjiwarongo Football Club who have been regular travellers to the tournament. Windhoek-based competitors SKW, Ramblers, Namibia Youth Football Development Programme (NYFDP), and Khomasdal Football Association (KFA) will also be part of the third edition of the tournament. For the second year, girls’ under-15 teams will be taking part in the tournament. The main sponsor of this tournament is once again Retirement Fund Solutions. Game schedules and additional information can be obtained from www.skw.com.na.

SKW Retirement Fund Solution Youth Soccer Tournament 2010 - Pictures
What a Tournament !!!
Bigger Better Faster seems to be the motto for the SKW Youth Football Division. A smiling NPL coach Richard Starke said: "It was the best tournament we had so far in our three year youth history. This year we had extremely good referees which was organised by Mr Simon Aweseb, and well disciplined football teams and supporters. It was astonishing to see what can be made with talent if they receive quality training in the youth. There is still a huge gap to fill to have quality youth football all over Namibia!"
According to SKW Youth coordinator Klaus Otto the tournament just became too big for our football division:" We had to get volunteers to help us with timekeeping and selling refreshments etcetera, this was all coordinated by three ladies Uta Ahrens, Carla Starke and Silke Beiter, who were pulling the strings in the background.”
The SKW Youth Division thanks all the clubs, coaches, players and parents who made this 2010 tournament a major success.
