Our primary objective as the soccer section at Pirates is to provide an avenue for all interested 6-17 year-olds to play football in a safe, healthy and largely competitive-free environment. In addition, we hope to encourage all kids, boys and girls to participate in the sport of football to break down the race, gender, religious, cultural and socio-economic barriers that may exist in our communities. To fulfill this objective we also strive to manage and administer the club in a professional, open, fair and transparent manner. To this end, we welcome the participation of all those that seek to further our primary objective in establishing the club and undertake to ensure that all of our practices are consistent with the values that we aspire to uphold.
Given that we’ve just completed our 6th successful season, it is our intention to continue progressing along the different divisions detailed below. Our primary target group for now would be to invite the participation of all interested footballers from within the community.
REGISTRATION AND SUBSCRIPTION
Our overriding objective in establishing the club has been to attract footballers from within the area whose sole interest involves the need to learn to play football in a fun and enjoyable manner. To this end, we have opted for an open, non-discriminatory, gender-bias free approach to registration. We invited participation in the club through interacting with all the surrounding schools that exist in the community. Flyers were distributed in the local shops and an open registration meeting was taken with interested parties.

The interim executive structure possesses a wealth of playing, coaching and administrative experience. Collectively, the team have played, managed professionally or coached numerous teams including the likes of Dynamos, D’Alberton Callies, Bluebells and Wits University, here in Gauteng as well as in Kwazulu Natal respectively.
The experience of the team in managing and coaching little leaguers is best exemplified by the 10-person years that they have collectively accumulated through time spent working with 6-15 year olds at Wits University right up to the end of the 2009 soccer season. The current chair served as the overall secretary of the junior football structure at Wits and served in such a position for over 3 years.
In addition, the professional occupations of the said individuals that straddle senior management and Director level positions across the corporate, private and non-governmental sectors speak volumes of the capability of such persons to effectively manage a football club. Furthermore, given the fact that all the executive members reside in the immediate area that the club is located and from where it intends to attract those interested in playing football is suggestive of the community-friendly nature of the club.
To this end, it is expected that those competences, skills, knowledge and resources that the executive committee may not individually and/or collectively possess, these will be sourced from the community – a community that is richly blessed with professionals whose expertise straddles just about every area of professional need, be it medical, legal, technical, educational, sporting etc.
