The Kovsie men’s and women’s hockey teams have positive expectations for the University Sport South Africa (USSA) national student tournament.

The USSA championships were hosted by the University of the Free State (UFS) from 2 to 6 July 2018. This year’s championships will have 45 competing teams and will thus be the biggest ever USSA hockey tournament.

For the female squad to qualify for the 2019 Varsity Sports tournament, they have to secure a spot among the top-seven teams. In order to get back into the A section, the Kovsie men’s team must win their tournament. 

The matches are scheduled to take place on the UFS Bloemfontein Campus astro fields.

The UFS women’s team, captained by Antonet Louw, is set to play on Monday at 15:35 against Nelson Mandela University (NMU); on Tuesday at 17:00 against the University of Johannesburg (UJ); and on Wednesday at 18:25 against North-West University (NWU). The play-off matches will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

The men’s team, with Cheslyn Neethling as captain, will play on Monday at 17:00 against the Central University of Technology; on Tuesday at 15:35 against the Tswane University of Technology; on Wednesday at 17:00 against the Vaal University of Technology; on Thursday at 18:25 against the University of KwaZulu-Natal; and on Friday at 15:35 against Rhodes University.

The programme is designed for people currently working in a development-related context, or who intend to do so. This year 152 applications were received, from which only 66 were accepted. Of those, almost 73% are from African countries. Last year 64 students were registered for the course. The programme's first contact session took place recently and was attended by, from the left: Ms Dorie Olivier (Programme Co-ordinator of the UFS Centre for Development Support), Prof. Tienie Crous (Dean of the UFS Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences), Ms Lindiwe Dladla (student from Swaziland), and Prof. Lucius Botes (Programme Director: Centre for Development Support).
