Get Bernice to Taiwan / WBSC U12 World cup
For the first time Bernice has been selected to represent South Africa as the Head of Delegation for the U12 South African team that will be travelling to Taiwan from the 26 July - 4 August.
For Bernice it's not only about teaching the kids what she has learnt over the years but to see smiles on their faces when they made a good play, batted well or won a game but also to be there when tears are shed and just to give them a hug and word of encouragement.
The most challenging thing for Bernice is being a woman in a mans world, especially when rising above all the obstacles that comes with it, but for her it's not about impressing anyone but being there for these boys whether on the field or to be their voice of reason and mother figure to them on tournaments.
With this this great honor of representing her country, comes a huge expense. Baseball in South Africa is classified as a minor sport and receives minimal funding from the Government. All tournaments (National or International) players, coaches, management have to self-fund their tours. The tour to Taiwan is estimated at R 25 000.00 per participant.
Any form of sponsorship and/or donation will be hugely appreciated to assist Bernice lighten the financial load.
