Breaking the status quo

POLOKWANE – Netball is not only for women, says Rising Stars netball coach, Cecilia Molokwane.

Among many under her belt, are the Rising Stars male team, which she has been coaching for four years now.

The reason why she chose to coach males is because she wanted to break the stereotypes around netball being a sport for women only.

“Just like soccer netball is not only for women, we do have women that play netball and no they are not lesbians, same applies for the men/males that are playing netball, they are not gay,” she explains.

Rising Stars males played against Lesotho Correctional Service male team on Saturday, 24 June, during the Netball Inauguration Tournament, that was hosted by the Rising Stars Netball Association, and won the game.
