Women’s Month: Dumisani Chauke

I am a newly appointed HOD for Sport and Recreation at the Tshwane University of Technology’s Ga-Rankuwa Campus where I am currently enrolled as a Masters in Marketing Student. I am a netball analyst for Super Sport. I am an ambassador for Betway Cares skills hub, an ambassador of Nelson Mandela University Sport department as well as Brand South Africa’s Play your program. I serve of SASCOC coaches’ commission as well as the CUCSA Technical Sub-Committee. I am the Assistant Coach of the Spar Proteas as well as Technical Consultant for TUT Netball. 

The dreams and aspirations that I have for myself and those coming after me keep me motivated to do more to show others that anything is possible. 

My Role model is my mother. She is strong and gentle at the same time. She’s a hard worker and a go getter. She is a nurse and her dedication to serving others is commendable. 

A lack of sponsorships and positive media coverage for women sports all over the world is one of the biggest barriers. 

They can start by supporting women sports by physically attending the games or sharing the stories on their social media platforms as we know that male athletes tend to have more followers than the female athletes. 

No matter how hard it gets, never give up on your dreams. Delays and detours are not denial, they are part of the process of becoming YOU. 

It’s not as easy at looks. Being able to plan, organise and implement will assist in being a successful sport administrator. 

Things won’t always go your way, they won’t always turn out the way you anticipated but have a little faith that eventually they will work out the way they are supposed to. Believe in yourself a little bit more. Never stop dreaming.

I would like to leave a legacy of hope. A legacy that has used sport to empower and inspire those coming after me.
