Sports Coaching like you have never experienced before.
C&C Sports Coaching spent 13 years in Johannesburg coaching kids in different sports (swimming, cricket, mountain biking, hockey and soccer). 13 years of experience, of fun, of building relationships with kids. However, with everything there comes a time to make a change. This was our time to take C&C Sports Coaching to the next level. Taking sports into the bush so that our kids can get out of the city, be free, improve their sporting skills and enjoy being in an environment that encourages them to grow.
Sports has been our passion, our jobs, our lives. A partnership was formed in 2006 between Cormac Slattery and Claudia Slattery (nee von Tutschek), two like-minded individuals who have a passion for sport and swimming in particular. As an old girl of St Katharine’s, Claudia had the idea to use the school’s swimming pool for private lessons, whenever the school wasn’t using it for their own training purposes. The program was so successful that we started it up at The Ridge school in 2008.
Our swim school focused on children from 3.5 years old through to Grade 7. We have taught hundreds of children how to swim, perfected their strokes, increased their fitness and taken kids from toddlers to provincial athletes. Our business grew to include other sports such as soccer, hockey and mountain biking. The reason we became well known in the busy metropolitan city was we had the most important ingredient: Passionate coaches who knew how to work with kids. With this skill, coupled with knowing how to coach kids our small business grew to a thriving sports coaching academy.
However, on a personal level Cormac and Claudia not only grew their business but also their family and as much as we loved our jobs and academy, life had different plans and we needed to grow our family out of the city. So, we decided that it was time to move. Hoedspruit it was. Now our focus has turned to taking city kids into the bush and giving them a taste of our daily life while learning all the skills.
