My name is Brandon Delport. I am 16 years old and I live for ice-hockey. I play for the Sabres ice-hockey Club in Kempton Park.
Ice-hockey has been a very big part of my life. It is important to me because my dad introduced me to the sport in 2006 when I was 5 years old. My dad inspired me to become a good hockey player by taking me to practice every week & games every weekend. My father helped me when I fell and encouraged me when I wanted to give up.
My father and I played hockey together until 2012 when he tragically passed away in a car accident. I thought that my hockey career ended that day, but I then realized that when I have my skates on and a stick in my hand I feel close to him.
Over the years I have received many awards at my clubs annual honors evening, awards like “best defense, top goal scorer, most valuable player & bash brother (always helps & looks out for team players).” I have played in many different age groups which include U14, U16, U18, U20 and 2nd Division.
I have made the Gauteng provincial team for 7 consecutive years and have participated in tournaments against other provinces. This year at Inter-provincials l was awarded the “Most Valuable Player of the Tournament”.
In 2015 I was invited & sponsored to go to Telford, England, to participate in a training camp with the Telford Tigers ice-hockey team. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity & one that l will never forget.
2 years ago I was chosen for the South African U18 squad. I also was the youngest player to make the U18 national team as I was only 14 years old at the time. My shirt number is 21 which was also my father’s jersey number. We played the tournament in Cape Town and we won a silver medal. I made the U18 national team once again this year and the tournament was held in Mexico City and we won a bronze medal.
I am a very dedicated player as I rarely miss a practice. I have a goal to become a professional ice-hockey player and I am trying my hardest to fulfill & reach that goa l
My mom is a single parent and is very proud of me and works very hard but cannot afford my ice hockey fees as it is a relatively expensive sport. Last year my coach generously sponsored me for the U18 league.
I would really appreciate it if you would please consider sponsoring me.
