New Sister Company!

Tri-Sports Academy is a private coaching academy specialising in strength and conditioning training for Soccer, Rugby and Basketball.

Tri-Sports Acadamy was founded in 2015 when Kudzai, the owner of Tri-Sports Academy, completed and received his B-comm degree in Sports Management and decided to start his own private coaching acadamy.

His main objective is to build and develop the skill set and conditioning of the younger generation sports persons.

Since it is never too early to start training and being healthy our target market is boys and girls ages 10-17 and includes all skill sets from beginners to the more advanced sports person. Given that we are working with the youth we focus on coaching in a challenging yet fun environment that maintains their focus and brings out the best in your child, ensuring that talents can be nurtured, and skills developed and refined through one-on-one or small group training sessions.

One aspect that sets Tri-Sports Academy apart from our competitors is that we offer on location training sessions from the comfort of your own home, complex clubhouse or even the local neighbourhood park using our mobile equipment.

Please scroll down to our contact details section should you wish to contact Kudzai to enquire about one on one or group training sessions.

Once you have finished browsing the pics of our beautiful clients wearing their one of a kind dresses on the Dresses by Roxanne website please feel free to visit the page of our brand new sister company Tri-Sports Academy, at the top of this page, especially focused on the men in your life.

Ceridwen Parry-Evans "an inspiration"

 

Recently Ceridwen Evans went for a photoshoot at Supermodels SA. After being turned down by many other agencies, she found Supermodels SA.

It was a very emotional photoshoot, as Ceri is disabled, it was rather difficult in the studio and on location. But seeing her mother(Glenys) strength and support, inspired the whole Supermodels SA Team.

 

Read more about Ceri and her inspiring journey in the June 2012 issue of Supermodels SA.

 

Please go to "client gallery" to see Ceri in her one of a kind Roxanne Pengilly creation!
