The SKW Youth Soccer Academy gains momentum. As the photo shows, nearly all players still attended the u/7 final which was late on Sunday with all the parents still having a long journey home.
From SKW perspective it was a solid tournament, we are at the moment playing very attractive football and are trying to always play the younger players in an age group. This principle is also applied to our u/17 NFA team, which consists of eight u/15 players and the team is after all amongst the top three in the.
Our aim is to develop football in the youth and not winning cups, which doesn’t mean that we are not trying to. All our coaches as well as the players and their parents more and more understand our concept. Our kids of all walks of life, grew over the past three years together and are standing side by side for the same aim - to be a good footballer when reaching the age of 18 and to be loyal to the club. We are not catering for accommodation nor transport and all our boys and girls made a plan to be at the field on time.
This shows the social responsibility our player learned to respect. What is concerning, however, is that there are only a few real clubs in our elite league while most of the teams are only teams decorating themselves with FC, and at the moment SKW is the only club complying with the FIFA Windhoek declaration.
This is a milestone for the SKW Soccer Divison, but the Namibian football stakeholders should practice what is preached and the benefits will be reaped in the years to come.
People must realise the before you earn you have to spend, if it money or in kind. Football is real life!

The fourth edition of the Ramblers tournament which is combined with the Delta School Windhoek tournament was a fruitful one for Cymot SKW. Three teams bringing home gold without loosing a single match, while SKW u/9 were only beaten in penalties in the final. Both tournaments were organised very well. At the Ramblers tournament it was the age groups u/7 till u/13 showing off, while the Delta Secondary School invited the u/15, u/17 boys and girls. According to SKW’s Rolf Beiter very good football was displayed especially in the elder age groups. All results and photos can be viewed on Tournament Page.

Kakuva calls players to report on Monday 1 August 2011 at 18h30 – five players of the SKW u/17 included
Lesley Kakuva will again be given total and sole control as Cymot SKW head coach for the season 2011/2012.
Cymot SKW will take up training coming Monday, 1 August 2011. Harry Januarie, part of the green and white outfit since 2007, will also be part of the coaching team mainly as goal keeper coach for the upcoming Premier League season. He is already training successfully in the youth as well. The coaching team will be completed by several coaches from the youth academy who will assist the SKW head coach during the season if needed. Still on board is Rolf Beiter, but this season Beiter will stand a bit in the background due to work commitments and the SKW youth. According to Lesley Kakuva, SKW will have trials for about 14 days and then the squad will be trimmed to 24. In several strategy meetings held during the past weeks it was decided to have a wind of change: the squad will be revamped completely, with lots of young players to take over from the not-so-hungry regulars. The whole world is following this route, our national team introduced young players, so the Olympia boys are following this trend. This strategy gives more stability to both players and club in view of commitment and loyalty. This continuity also applies to the technical team. January did like the mentor Kakuva two years coaching in the SKW Academy before being exposed to the NPL. Jochen Traut will act as team manager for the upcoming season which will leave the chairman post vacant for the moment. Who will follow in the footsteps of Traut will be decided at the AGM of the Soccer Division late August. SKW enters a feeder team into the second division to build up young players and get injured players back faster on the highest level. This is the last step to fill the gap between the NPL side and the youth. It makes SKW the first club to fully comply with the international FIFA statutes of a club.
SKW is currently negotiating with the NFA that players can be shifted between the amateur and the professional side as is done in the rest of the world. SKW will be the first club since Independence to enter two sides in adult football.
563 Archers with 184 coaches and officials from 56 countries participated in the WAYC in Legnica. Sebastian Fechter was selected to represent Namibia in compound cadet men division.
In the greens of the City Park the sports complex was used for the event. Two soccer fields with 60 butts were used during competition. Practise butts were on another field in the stadion, were the medal matches took place as well. It was a well organised championship, congratulation to the organisers of Poland. The recurve archers had a full FITA round as ranking round and the set system for eliminations. Compound archers shoot a 720 round at 50m as a ranking round and then eliminations.
Sebastian ended in the ranking round on 40th position out of 52 entries in compound cadet men with a score of 659. Bridger Deaton of USA was first with 699. For Namibia Sebastian has achieved a top score. Well done.
In the elminations he started off against L. Pardini (Italy) ranked 25th. Sebastian 139 lost against Pardini 144. At the end S. Hansen (Denmark) achieved gold, R. Domanski (Belgium) silver and A.Davarci (Turkey) bronze. For further results visit www.archery.org/livescores/ .
In overall Sebastian was ranked 33rd with other archers at the end of this event. An excellent achievement for a first time at a world archery championship.
The next WAYC is set 2013 in China. I hope namibian archers prepare well in advance and that we will be able to sent 3 archers per division, that we can participate in team events too.

SKW Football: Ralph Ellinger new chairman for the year 2011
At the SKW Football AGM, held on 20 September 2011, the soccer division continued the youthful change in voting 32-year young Ralph Ellinger as new chairman for the year 2011. Mr. Jochen Traut, now Cymot SKW NPL team manager and our representative of the Namibian football by serving on the Board of Governors (BOG) at the Namibian Premier League, convinced his committee to search for another chairman. At the end Ellinger was given the vote of confidence. He is an energetic, dynamic person and to link up with the youth he is just the right man to understand the modern youth for the future of the club. Re-elected to serve on the football committee were Jochen Traut, Udo Riedel, Harald Fülle and Rolf Beiter. The new members completing the 2011 committee are Günter Ling and Richard Starke. Ling will be the link between the SKW main club and the soccer division while it was seen with a delight that Starke is back after a year break from SKW football.
SKW u/15 players called up for National Team - Carsten Horn, Ernst Stuurmann, Tristan Minz and Marko Zirzow.
SKW defensive midfielder Edy Mangoumou is this month’s FNB Player of the Month after receiving the most votes from our panel of judges. It was quite tight in the end with Edy receiving four votes, Civics midfielder Heini Isaacs three votes and African Stars midfielder Jamu Ngatjizeko one vote.
Edy has had a great season so far for SKW and helped them reach second position on the log at the end of Round 10. As a defensive midfielder, he has been one of their star players with his strong challenges and robust tackles, his high work rate and speed to the breakdown. Read an interview with Mangoumou in the January 2012 edition of Namibia Sport magazine.

SKW Stadium gets new Flood Light
New technology lights are currently being fitted to the six light masts at the SKW soccer stadium. All light fittings will be replaced with the new modern technology, additionally one extra flood light per mast will be added. The lights will be connected in separate circuits to be able to switch on half power for training purposes to save costs. Full capacity light will be for NPL matches and major events. Next hurdle will be the security fence, while also talks are being started to convert the main soccer pitch into an artificial turf.

CYMOT SKW Rewards Star Performers
On Wednesday 30 May 2012 CYMOT SKW held its annual season end function at the SKW premises in Olympia. As is custom the players were honoured for their performances during the 2011/12 NPL season.
In his address to the players the chairperson of SKW Football, Ralph Ellinger, praised the squad and coaches for the unexpectedly good performance and 5th place on the log: "With a virtually new squad, at the very young average age of 23, and with 10 players not having tasted NPL action before this season we were able to surprise the football community in Namibia. It is truly a remarkable achievement for this team to have pushed for second place right up to the last game of the season.
The members of SKW and its management would like to congratulate you on this performance. We are also glad to report that Head Coach Lucky Kakuva, who in our eyes ranks as one of the top coaches in Namibia, has extended his stay at CYMOT SKW. Lucky has been with us for close to 10 years and is part of the family. He has been part of the rise of CYMOT SKW and is now in charge of one of the most exciting teams in Namibian top flight football."
On the back of this performance CYMOT SKW has already resigned 11 players for the next season. Says Head Coach Lucky Kakuva: "The players have earned their position in next year's squad and with 3 or 4 players from the youth academy pushing for places in the NPL team, competition in the new look squad will be very tight. The team has show maturity beyond their years and with CYMOT SKW having conceded the second least goals in the competition hopes are high that we can improve on our performance during the 2012/13 season."
The evening; however belong to those few players who really stood out and contributed to the successes of the season:
Player of the Season: Charles Uirab, with his consistent performances, professionalism, attitude at practice and of course his unbelievable saves he was the stand out performer of the season. Edy Mangoumou was a close second.
Most Improved Player: Elvis Tjiuasera, he came as an unknown player with little expectations but soon developed into a stalwart component of the defence which leaked only 14 goals during the season.
Most Enthusiastic Young Player: Shaanyene "Titus" Nailongo, this midfielder could not break into the squad during the first round but when an injury forced the coaches to improvise on the right fullback position he grabbed the opportunity with both hands and established himself as part of the starting eleven.
Sportiest Player: Chepela Chepela, was honoured for his all round contribution on and off the field and his humbelness and willingness to serve the team. As player of the season for the 2010/11 season Chepela has served CYMOT SKW well in the four seasons that he was part of the squad. Unfortunately he has decided to end his career in Namibia and has already returned back to Zambia.
Top Goal Scorer: Panduleni "Kaka" Nekundi, he contributed one third of the teams goals and often changed the game when coming on as a substitute. Unfortunately it was not enough to challenge for the NPL top goal scorer position.

Olaf Beiter Youth Football Namibia Top 4 Winner and Captain of the SKW u13 GOLDEN BOYS Generation – 2011 (the SKW u/13 won all major trophies in 2011)
2012 SKW Tournament Winner and successful trials in Germany and currently amongst the leading scorers in the NFA u/15 Top 4 League.
2012 SKW tournament (biggest youth tournament in Namibia) winner
He is one of the few 13 year old youngsters displaying his skills in the u15 NFA League this season
Olaf Beiter spent his May holiday in Germany, where he was invited for trials by the famous Hoffenheim Club. After this three week stint, he was he invited by SC Borea Dresden to show his talent during a international youth tournament in Hamburg, therefore extending his stay overseas. During that tournament, where he played against teams like Herta BSC Berlin, Hamburg SV, Hansa Rostock and various Danish representatives, he had a chance to impress this Dresden Club and subsequently got an offer to become a fixed member of the team. Olaf is packing up in Namibia and will depart for this new venture in life on 24 August 2012. SC Borea has a hostel on their premises which will be the new base for the young Namibian.
The left footed youngster already made headlines at the start of his football career when he played his first U/7 tournament as a five year old and become one of the top goal scorers in his age group. Since then many games have been played, many tournaments won and the medals proudly displayed in his room, are proof that his current soccer career to date has been a successful one. And to top it all, this current SKW u/15 player played himself into the notebook of Namibian u/17 national coach Christy Guruseb when Guruseb watched an U/15 League Game last weekend.
According to the young fellow, his five week stint in Germany expanded his vision. “Europe opened my eyes in the way football is practiced and played at a much higher level than at home. The Academies there are specialized on soccer, they train five times a week and each weekend matches are played on a very competitive level. For me it is a big honour and also a challenge to survive this hard but fantastic world of football and life overseas.”
His parents, Rolf and Silke Beiter, are quite excited about the ventures of their only child, but they are parting with mixed feelings as this new project will also change their lives to no longer being a day to day family. As his mother said: “Olaf had to compromise many weekends – instead of being with his friends he spent lots of extra hours trying to improve himself.”
Olaf was born in 1998 and joined the SKW Football Academy in 2008. His father, a former Namibian National Player, is currently the co-ordinator of the NFA U/15 League while also coaching the U/13 SKW team.
SKW U/14 OLAF BEITER TALENT SIGNED BY GERMAN DFB SCHOOL IN DRESDEN
In the deciding encounter of the season, SKW faced nemesis Ramblers at the NFA Technical Centre and it was the Olympia-based side SKW that hammered their opponents 4-0 to all but win the championship with 14 points, one ahead of second-place Ramblers. Tangeni Ndeitunga scored twp for the SKW with teammates Daniel Hassenpflug, and George Hummel adding one each.
Earlier on in the day, Tura Magic beat Nick Eleven by 3-1 to take the bronze medal in third place on five points, while Eleven finished bottom of the log on a single point after six matches played in the Top-Four Championship.
in the B League, Katutura Youth Academy finished top on 12 points after four games played, followed by Katsville with seven points and Windhoek United in third also on seven points, while Kaizen Football Academy finished fourth on one point and Mario Football Academy last also with a point from four games.
SKW cemented their dominance of local youth football as they have earlier also had their under-17 team win the NFA Khomas Under-17 League.
The NFA in April 2012 launched the Pilot Youth Leagues Project with the primary objective of ensuring that structures are in place to streamline youth football and nurture its development.
Youth Football was solely left to schools to run in the past, but about three years ago with the introduction of the NFA's Youth Development through Football (YDF) programme, the rationale changed.

SKW u/17 coach Martin Brosda said after the match in an interview, when he was asked who his best player was: "My/the complete team played well and deserved to win the league, Uaseuko "Eto" Katjiukua scored a good and important goal - Leo (Leonardo Alves) worked hard for the team and created lots of chances, while Haifeni when I brought him as substitute stabilised the defence in such a way that our opponents didn’t threaten our goal anymore!” I am proud of the boys.....Congratulations to the team!!!

SKW u/13 and u/17 win GOLD, u/7 Silver underpinned the hard and intensive work of the SKW Youth Academy. But winning is not the only aim the SKW Academy is following, as Mr Udo Riedel, one of the coaches confirmed once more: "Our academy stands for consistency and education of Namibia's youth players in learning how to play football, disciplinary behaviour and manage the day to day challenges in life.
