About Us

Hoërskool Randburg Training Group


Our training group at Hoërskool Randburg started in August 2010. We are passionate about athletics, cross country and road running and believe our strength lies in our loyalty. We have great facilities that includes a 400m grass track, gym, steeplechase bar and hurdles.

Our athletes have already won 36 individual gold medals in athletics and cross country at SA Championships, and represented our country 11 times in international athletics and cross country.

We also assist athletes that participate in other sports like Laser run and Biathlon. Contact us if you want to train with the best!

COACHES


Head Coach - Elise Viljoen


After attending Hoërskool Sentraal in Bloemfontein, Elise qualified as a Pharmacist at the NWU PUKKE in 1989. During this time she competed for the Free State and Western-Transvaal in athletics, cross country and road running. The 10km was her favourite event with a personal best of 35:52. In 2018 Elise qualified with distinctions as an ASA Level 3 National Coach.

"I believe my role as a coach is to teach primary school athletes the basics of athletics in an enjoyable and safe environment

My job as a high school coach is to encourage athletes to train and participate; and to teach them the discipline and hard work of distance running. I also need to identify the athletes with real talent and the will to perform and prepare them for senior athletics.

Senior athletes are supported and encourage to reach the highest level possible".


Assistant and Strength and Conditioning Coach - Mauritz Tuit

Mauritz attended Hoërskool Randburg where he was head-boy during 2011. Mauritz was a top athlete and part of the first group of athletes at Hoërskool Randburg Training Group. After matric he studied BA Human Movement Sciences at the NWU. During his time at NWU he trained under the guidance of Jean Verster and had excellent results before injury ended his athletics career. During 2012, Mauritz was 4th in the 1500m and 2nd in the Cross Country 8km at ASA Champs. Mauritz ran personal best times of 3:51 in the 1500m, 8:34 in the 3000m and 31:16 in the 10km.
