Western Province Athletics (WPA) held their second annual junior camp at the Western Cape Sport School last week.

The camp, themed, “Bridging the Gap” is a platform for young athletes to meet mentors, gather knowledge and acquire skills from some of the best athletes in the country.

The kids who attended the camp were selected from the WPA Kids’ Athletics Facilitators programme, where 17 facilitators are contracted to WPA for a year, across various schools in the Cape Metropole.

The programme only caters for children aged 12 to 13 as they are the next group who are making the transition to high school, thus the theme “Bridging the Gap” between primary school and high school.

“The camp was built around providing these kids with life skills and knowledge and confidence to assist them with this transition. It is for young athletes who want to develop their athletic skills. Outstanding instruction, skill development and intense competition prepare the camper for future athletic competition,” says WPA development officer, Kurt Cameron.

The subject matter covered at the camp was comprehensive, practical and served to illuminate the explanation of various operating situations that one typically encounters in putting together these kinds of short-term, yet intensive, training programmes­.

“The numerous tips in the programme activity served to enrich the athlete with various skills which we, as WPA, are firmly behind and we understand the need to unite and build a strong base for our youth and junior athletes,” says Cameron.

Some topics covered:

. HIV/Aids awareness in sport

. Puberty awareness

. Technical rules of the sport

. Anti-doping

. Coaching clinic

. Goal setting

WPA states that this camp is an opportunity to make new friendships, and implement the values and principles of athletics.
