Delegates that have received certification at the courses that launched the WFA SA in July 2012, will be presented with an opportunity to further their 'studies' through the specialist course that will address periodisation in more detail with regard to youth, rehabilitation and growth in addition to team and individual requirements.

This course is scheduled to take place from 24-26 January 2013. Both courses will take place the Sturrock Park Sports Conference Centre at the Wits University Braamfontein Campus in Johannesburg. The course fee is R3 900.
