ONGOS VALLEY LAUNCHES NEW BRAND IN STYLE
ONGOS Valley Development (Pty) Ltd this past week launched its new brand in style by celebrating the coming to life of its new visual outlook by hosting an introductory event, a Charity Golf Day, a Coaching Clinic and a Community Fun Day and Soccer Tournament.
Subsequent to the introductory event that was hosted at Hilton Hotel last Thursday, the Ongos Valley Charity Golf Day was held on Friday, 9th April at the Windhoek Golf & Country Club.
18 teams participated with Team NamibRe coming first followed by Team Octagon and Team Old Mutual Alternative Investments respectively.
The coaching clinic was also held on Friday, 9th of April at the Samora Machel Community Soccer Field. At the event, former Brave Warriors coach, Ricardo Mannetti put kids from Moses Garoeb and Dr. Abraham Iyambo Primary Schools through a number of technical drills and sessions. This was followed by a match between the two schools, which was won by Dr. Abraham Iyambo Primary School. The equipment used on the day, which included mini-goal posts, soccer balls and training bibs were all donated the two schools.
On Saturday, April 10th Ongos Valley hosted a Community Fun Day & Soccer Tournament on the same Samora Machel Community Soccer Field in Havana which had been levelled for the special occasion.
For many years, this field was sloped towards one end and filled with rocks to the disadvantage of local players. During March 2021, Ongos Valley, in consultation with the local football community decided to upgrade the field and improve its playing surface for better playing conditions.
Four local teams took part in the Ongos Valley Soccer Tournament (Etunda United, Samora Legends, Journey Boys & Ondobe Eleven) with Etunda United coming out champions followed by Journey Boys). The top goal scorer was Amon Jonas from Samora Legends.
The Community Fun Day had a number of activities planned out for the local kids, including jumping castles, face painting, tug-of-war, performances and a dance competition. Refreshments and snacks were also provided for the local kids.
