Soweto Touch Association


STA is an organization that was founded in the area of Soweto to expand and develop Touch Rugby as an enthusiastically emerging sport in South Africa.


STA Mission


STA promotes the empowerment of our youth through striving for the highest level of sporting achievement. We are committed to equipping the youth in Soweto with social and life skills through the provision of educational and sporting opportunities. These skills will foster the principle of personal growth, personal success and social responsibilities.

We aim to not only impact the children’s lives through growth of physical abilities but more importantly through growth of mental abilities and social abilities like team work, team responsibilities, fundraising initiatives and tours.

STA believes that a wholesome, active responsible child will grow up to become a powerful South African. “People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defences, or the problems of modern society” Vince Lombardi.
