Yellowwood Park Primary Majorettes march to gold achievement

Dedication and hard work led the Yellowwood Park Primary Majorettes team to score gold accolades in three categories at the recent majorettes competition.

YELLOWWOOD Park Primary School was alive with energy and anticipation as it hosted the third regional Federation of Dance, Drill, Cheerleading and Majorette Sports KwaZulu-Natal (FDDCMKZN) majorettes competition on April 13.

The event, drawing participants from various teams across the region, served as a stage for young majorettes to exhibit their skills and talents across a range of categories.

They competed in categories such as baton mini formation, mace mini formation, baton group, pom group, mace group, flag group, non-prop group, small drill and large drill.

Reflecting on their team’s impressive accomplishments, Yellowwood Park Primary Majorettes coach Cate d’Offay expressed immense pride. Notably, the Yellowwood Park Primary Majorettes secured gold accolades (80–89%) in three categories, a testament to their dedication and preparation.

Anele Shandu, captain of the Yellowwood Park Primary Majorettes, remarked, “We have been preparing tirelessly for the competition. We had practised from 13:30 until 18:00 the day before, but it was all worth it. I am proud of the team, and we did really well.”

The competition featured six teams striving for gold honours. Alongside the Yellowwood Park Primary Majorettes, participants included Eagles Majorette Club in both Junior and Senior categories, Southlands Majorettes, Mowat Park and Vryheid Comprehensive.

Looking forward, excitement mounts for upcoming competitions, notably the nationals scheduled in Gauteng during June and July.

Six members of the Yellowwood Park Primary Majorettes, along with three coaches, are currently seeking funding to represent South Africa at the IAM Majorette World Cup in France in July.
