WPA Race Walking Clinic - 17 February 2007
Promoting the sport of walking is one of the main goals of the newly formed WPA Race Walking Committee. The committee is committed to develop race walking amongst the youth and communities in the Western Cape. The first step was taken with the very successful hosting of the first WPA Race Walking clinic. The clinic drew interested walkers from as far as Stellenbosch and Somerset West. Under the eye of coach Dirk van Daalen the walkers were taken through the basics of walking which included rules, conduct, warm-ups, drills and technique workouts. With the help of some Provincial walkers the clinic participants could see first hand how correct technique and posture can play a role in ensuring more effective walking.
This will certainly be the first of many more clinics to come.
