REMINDER: Athletics Symposium
August 26, 2013  

Supplied by WPA Admin from wpa2015
Western Province Athletics is committed to not only increasing and improving athletics within the Western Province but in contributing towards developing, transforming and improving the opportunities presented to our members.

WPA will be hosting an Athletics Symposium on Saturday 31 August, all affiliated clubs are invited and encouraged to attend.  


The WPA Symposium provides a forum for interaction and debate between athletes, coaches, technical officials and administrators. It enables the industry’s leaders and successful executives to share valuable knowledge and experience with the audience.


WPA will use the Symposium to allow members of the athletic community to engage with one another through a co-ordinated programme, which will hopefully in time, produce effective sports coaches and managers, capable of producing athletes, as well as, successfully equip club administrators with the skills needed to manage clubs that are sustainable.
