The Accelerada Sports Academy is a private organization. The club was formed in 2017 with the amalgamation of the Pierre Blignaut Shot Put Academy and HHI tracks. The club is based at Ruimsig Athletics Stadium with the majority of our membership being from the City of Joburg. However, we do attract athletes from centres throughout the other provinces including North West, Mpumalanga, Free State and Limpopo to the north and west of us and from Western Cape and Bloemfontein. Over the years we have maintained a healthy steady membership of between # members but recently there has been a noticeable increase especially those athletes in the primary school ages. We have 5 IAAF & ASA certified and highly qualified coaches that specialize in various events and disciplines of the sport. Since the establishment of all our clubs, the clubs has promoted the development of athletes at all levels. While the club’s partners has produced many provincial, national, international and Olympic team members, we also strives to develop young talent in our sport.
