SKW Youth Guidelines

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

Retirement Fund Solutions digs out N$17000 for SKW - Youth Tournament

Once again the Youth Football Calendar is gearing up for the annual Retirement Fund Solutions - SKW - Youth Tournament. During the coming weekend more than 600 youth footballers will converge on the CYMOT SKW Youth Academy to participate in the biggest tournament of its kind in Namibia.

Having already established their position as the number one Youth Academy in the country and having managed to take this relatively young tournament (first hosted by the CYMOT SKW Youth Academy in 2007) right to the top in terms of participants the focus will this year be on perfecting the execution and management of this tournament. "We are striving to become better at what we do and how we do it" were the comments of Rolf Beiter, PR manager at SKW. "As in the past we would like to repay the confidence which Retirement Fund Solutions has show in us by setting the standards in Youth Football in Namibia" Beiter continued. As in the past six years Retirement Fund Solutions have realised the important role which football can play in the lives of the youth in Namibia.

The first ball is set to be kicked just after lunch on Friday (5 April) afternoon at the premises of SKW in Olympia with the final medal ceremony set to take place on Sunday afternoon at 14:00. During these 48 hours more than 600 youth footballers will be competing for the top spot right from u/7 to u/17 and the girls leagues. "We are also expecting to entertain more than 2000 visitors during these three days and our kitchen staff have been hard at work to ensure that enough food and drink is available for everyone" Beiter said.

"Unfortunately this will be the last tournament hosted under the umbrella of the main sponsor of the youth academy, CYMOT. But luckily our tournament sponsor Retirement Fund Solutions have indicated their willingness to support this tournament beyond 2013" Beiter continued.

None the less there is bound to be some thrilling action and some fine footballing skills on display at SKW during the coming weekend.

Turnier beim SKW – Von Rhein: „Wir sind Favoriten”

Rund 600 Nachwuchsspieler werden an diesem Wochenende zum alljährlichen Jugendturnier des Sportklubs Windhoek (SKW) erwartet. Ein „großes Turnier“ verspricht es nicht zuletzt dank der großzügigen Unterstützung des Finanz- und Versicherungsunternehmens Retirement Fund Solutions (RFS) zu werden.
