Transnet SAFA School of Excellence 2015 intake trials kick off

It is again that exciting time of the year for the aspiring young South African soccer athletes. On the 2nd-3rd August 2014 The Transnet South African Football Association (SAFA) School of Excellence will be conducting the final leg of trials for the 2015 intake. The trials are open to players born in 2001 and 2002 who will be in Grade 8 or 9 next year.

Every year the school identifies and enrolls talented young football players from rural and underprivileged communities across the country. It prepares them for a professional football career.  A total of 120 high school going boys will be selected to attend the prestigious school where they will receive a holistic education that focuses on formal academic competency, life skills training and football development. The school currently employs eight educators and four accredited coaching staff.

The search for talent has been underway throughout the nine provinces which include the Western Cape, Northern Cape, Kwa- Zulu Natal and most recently in the Free State. Many of the school’s graduates have gone on to play for clubs in the local Premier Soccer League and various leagues abroad. A number of these players have represented the national soccer team, Bafana Bafana, notably:


  • Steven Pienaar
  • Bernard Parker
  • Daine Klate
  • Jeffrey Ntuka
  • Bryce Moon
  • Masilo Modubi

Players who are interested in participating in the upcoming trials should bring along soccer boots and meals for the day. Registration is open between 7am and 11am.

  • Date:        2-3 August 2014
  • Time:       07h00 - 11h00 registration
  • Venue:     Transnet SAFA School of Excellence, Elandsfontein

About Transnet Foundation and School of excellence

The Transnet SAFA (South African Football Association) School of Excellence was started in 1994 with 47 learners.  And now with 120 leaners, the school continues to grow in infrastructure and academic performance. With an achievement of a 78 % matric pass rate in 2013, Transnet is confident of producing quality future soccer professionals.

Through its sport portfolio, Transnet Foundation has tirelessly given, and continues to give, young sportsmen and women in rural communities a great opportunity to fulfil their dreams. The Foundation realizes that talent is alone will not determine the success of potential future stars. Without the opportunities to discover and develop their talent, the journey from grassroots to glory is unlikely to happen. With this in mind, Transnet continues to provide platforms in which our country’s talent can be nurtured and developed.

    Dear Transnet Foundation
    I'm Ngazi Mahobe,I'm 16 years old(1998) and from East London. My dream is to play proffesional football one day and represent my country in a patriotic manner. I'm working daily on my dream through hours in training. I play 1st team at club level and was top goalscorer in the SAFA Buffalo City U17 Easter Tournament. I also play for the senior soccer team at school. I'm currently enrolled at Selborne College in grade 10, through the aid of an accademic scholarship from SSP,as my family cannot afford the fees of such a school.I write to you today in hope of merely a training session for the academy,as there aren't any trials or opportunities in East London. I come from an underprivelledged family, so for me to make it would mean the world to my family and I'd be able to also provide for my family.
    I ask that you please reply and I pray that you allow me the opportunity. My details are as follows:
