“As a student I feel the coordinators did an amazing job of showing us Joburg and all the fun things there is to do there while still pushing for us to do our work.”
African Leadership Academy is committed to maintaining an active and healthy community. We believe a healthy body helps grow a healthy mind and all students are encouraged to participate in our sports program, competitively or recreationally. ALA offers a number of competitive sports year-round including football, basketball, volleyball and netball. Competitive sports teams practice at least three times per week and play matches against local schools and in regional tournaments. Additionally, recreational sports on offer include tennis, track athletics, dodgeball, and touch rugby. In addition to emphasizing the physical well-being of our students, ALA’s sports program strives to place leadership at the core of its programs, providing valuable learning experiences for our students’ leadership and team-oriented development.
