Cosmo Dolphins participates in OR Tambo Soncini Games

Cosmo Dolphins Swimming Academy is on the move to advance the children’s swimming skills, and on 27 October the swimming youngsters will participate in this year’s OR Tambo Soncini Social Cohesion Games to be held in Germiston.

Cosmo Dolphins Swimming Academy is a swim school located at 10188, Uzbekistan Crescent, Ext 8, Cosmo City.

The primary purpose of the school is to teach children and adults to learn to swim. Tsepang and Moipone Mohapi founded the swimming academy which provides swimming lessons and competitions for both children and adults. They also educate the swimmers how to do swimming techniques like stroke correction and water aerobics.

Moipone Mohapi told Cosmo City Chronicle that OR Tambo Soncini Social Cohesion games will be a good platform for the young children to participate in.

“Participating in the OR Tambo Soncini games means a lot to the school and the children,” Mohapi said. “It is at these games where different outstanding swimmers will be selected to the national team to participate in Italy,” said Mohapi, who has also been appointed to be an assistant coach to guide Central Gauteng Aquatics swimmers to the OR Tambo games.

“If we get an athlete to represent the country,” Mohapi added. “That would be one of our greatest moments for us not only as a school, but for parents and Cosmo City as a whole. This is also a great opportunity for children to represent their province (Gauteng).  It is our first time to participate in the games and we feel honored because not every kid gets this opportunity.

OR Tambo Soncini Social Cohesion Games are not only limited to swimming as it also represents games like soccer, netball, rugby etc.

Swimming is an important sport, Mohapi said, because many careers like Aviation and SA Navy require swimming skills as a qualification to enter.

Cosmo Dolphins Swimming Academy has been influential in the community as they provide free swimming lessons, free transport to and from the swimming pool in the beginning of every year. This is aimed at teaching children about water awareness and safety. They also hold swimming camps and invite different people to talk about different careers to help children to make better informed decisions when time comes.

“Our community still does not take swimming seriously, hence we don't get enough support,” said Mohapi when questioned about the challenges they face. “We can have the strongest swimming club in Cosmo City if we get enough participants. We are open to anyone who would like to acquire this important life skill.”

People who want to join swimming, Mohapi said, you need a swimming costume, a swimming cap, a towel, and for fee structure go to www.cosmodolphins.co.za.
