Holistic athletics training for girls

The South Africa Endurance Academy is introducing a middle-distance scouting clinic for young sporty females.

“The objective of this clinic is to identify prospective 800 m runners, introduce athletic scholarship opportunities and potentially create new connections for young female athletes,” said Elana Meyer, CEO of SA Endurance Academy.

She says the invitation is not necessarily only for girls, who are already running. “We want hockey girls, netball girls, swimmers… any girl who think she might just be able to take this opportunity to change her course.

“I want girls to know this camp is part of an exciting time for girls in sport.”

The camp is scheduled for 5 and 6 June and will take place at the Stellenbosch Academy of Sport. Meyer will be present as well as the other legendary runner Zola Budd.

The camp is for young females, 13 to 17 years of age, that are currently involved in sport or believe they have undiscovered talent. Endurocad is offering a two-day clinic for young females to learn more about themselves, develop a deeper understanding of their physiological potential and what opportunities sport can potentially offer to qualify for a paid scholarship.

“The individuals need to be interested and passionate about sport and willing to take up the scholarship opportunities should it be presented to them,” Meyer said. “The clinic will include an array of skills-training sessions to empower young females and place them on the path to self-discovery with the aim of fulfilling their full potential.

“It would also encourage them to invest in themselves and their future and open doors to opportunities for scholarships post-school. It will include sessions for life-skills development, (self-defence, basic financial skills, appropriate sports nutrition, and so on), athletics skills development (strength, fitness, conditioning, and so on) and career development.”
