University’s Anchor Strategy is fast gaining traction, with several units making contact with various members of the local community. On 4 November 2022, the Department of Sports’ Hockey coaches visited several lower primary schools in Umlazi Township to promote the sport.

Sanele Madida, who led the coaches, said they targeted primary schools so that the pupils would be introduced to the sport while they are young. Madida said it was easy for kids to learn any sport at this stage of their lives.

The coaching team first visited the University’s neighbour, Mgijimi Primary School, and continued to other schools in the township.
