Shela Lekalakala
Shela Lekalakala has been involved in sports administration for a long time. This energetic firebrand was a champion hurdler and Provincial netball player before turning her considerable talent to the world of sports administration following the completion of her Human Movement Studies at UWC.
She has risen through the ranks at the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport where she began as a Sports Promotion Officer.
 
On what she views as her most important role at the WCPSC, she said, “I want to make sure that the federations are properly structured.”
“We want to make sure that communication lines between Federations and Members are as smooth as possible. People must be able to get information easily. As we are moving into the era of technology, people must have access to information.”
 
On her role as a MANCO member she added, “I want to deliver on my goals to the best of my abilities. As we currently have “new” structures within the WCPSC, we want to see that sports codes that never existed in the rural districts are able to form their own federations.”
 
Chief on her list of priorities is to gain clarity on the demarcation issues within the WCPSC. “If you look at Federations such as Rugby, Cricket, Hockey, and Athletics, they do not conform to their demarcated boundaries. We would like them to exist in other districts such as Central Karoo, Eden, Overberg which are then able to form their own Federations and operate within their own demarcations.”
 
When Shela is not in the throes of an administrative battle, she enjoys travelling and being outdoors.
