Athletics is one of the leading sporting codes to be incorporated into TuksSport High School. The TuksAthletics Academy is geared to address the development, coaching, and educational interventions for talented young athletes who wish to excel to international standards in the code.

With the world-class facilities of the University of Pretoria and highly qualified coaching personnel, the athletes are assured of a coaching environment that is conducive to world-class performances. Given individual attention, each athlete has specific developmental and academic objectives to ensure maximal achievement in all aspects of holistic education.

  • To develop in the athlete a champion mindset that will be reflected in their athletic and academic achievements.
  • To work within the International Association of Athletic Federations (IAAF) philosophy of long-term athletic development.
