This first test was held at the Raoul Illidge Sports Complex, on Sunday March 11th 2012. There we saw a good attendance of the age group 10 to 13, but a poor turnout of the specific group of 13 to 19 years of age.

One of the reasons for this poor turnout of this specific group was mainly caused bye a Carnival activity hosted the evening prior to the event.
