Tuks HPC<< BACK
The High Performance Centre (HPC) has been in existence for 12 years, the Centre is the training ground for tomorrow’s sporting champions and the venue of choice for sports professionals and enthusiasts alike.
Boasting the delivery of 3 of the 6 medals won at the 2012 Olympic Games, with a Gold, Silver and Bronze through our Rowing “Oarsome Foursome’, Caster Semenya and Bridgitte Hartley, we are confident that we are preparing the up and coming medal winners for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2016 Olympic Games.
The HPC is situated on the LC de Villiers Sports Grounds. These facilities annually attract international athletes as well as local sporting bodies for training camps or specific team preparation. The HPC has become the preferred location for Team South Africa pre-departure camps, as well as the preferred centre of specialisation for a significant number of national federations.
Within the sporting environment this sporting initiative has been endorsed by several national federations who host their academies at the HPC. In addition, the TuksSport High School was created by the high performance centre (HPC) to provide high school learner athletes with a unique opportunity to live out their passion for sport in a distinctive sporting milieu. TuksSport High School distinguishes itself by offering quality education to South African and international high performance athletes, and does so within a flexible structure. The structure creates optimal training opportunities, without compromise to the academic development of the learners/athletes.
The HPC is a valuable asset, not only to the University, but also to any entry level, recreational or high performance sport enthusiasts who can make use of our sport science support
