SuperSport’s Let’s Play and Free State & Northern Cape newspapers are looking for youths who are good at sport!

Are you good a sport – or is someone in your school or place of education good at sport? Are you motivating or training others to be good at sport? Are you a young coach who is coaching future stars? Are you getting people active at your school, community or gym? We want to hear from you!

SuperSport’s Let’s Play identified the need amongst the youth to get more sport active. With this in mind SuperSport and Let’s Play in association with Bloemnews (BFN); Mangaung Express (BFN); Vista (Welkom); Kroonnews (Kroonstad); Vrystaat News / Nuus (Eastern Free State); Kalahari Bulletin (Upington); NoordKaap (Kimberley) have launched a special initiative in 2008:

We want to find and give recognition to learners at either Primary or High school who excel in sport or who are helping others to be more active.

The SuperSport’s Let’s Play Star of the Month is a monthly competition for anyone aged 6 – 18 who are still in school.


You can nominate yourself or be nominated by a friend, or by any teacher, lecturer or coach at your school or place of education. You can even be nominated by a family member or friend who knows how good you are!


The winner is chosen from all the nominations received for that month. The monthly winner will receive a Let’s Play hamper filled with goodies.


From all the entries we receive each month, one player will be chosen as the SuperSport Let’s Play Star of the Month.  At the end of the year one player from all the Star of the month winners during the year will be chosen as the SuperSport Let’s Play Star of the Year. (Do not worry – we do an overall annual summary of all your sporting achievements beginning to middle November before the year-winner is chosen).

Let’s Play is an initiative to enhance recreation and development at schools through play and sport!  Every school or place of education has talented sports men and women! Don’t be shy – we want to know who you are!


Send us your nomination today (nominations received before the 20th of every month will be included in that month’s selection. Nominations received after the 20th of every month will be carried over to the next month’s selection).  The SuperSport Let’s Play Sport Star of the Month will be chosen each month from February to middle October 2020.
