SPORT AND RECREATION

Description

The functions of the Sport and Recreation Directorate is in the process of being aligned to Sport and Recreation South Africa’s (SRSA) “Road Map to Optimal Performance and Functional Excellence” whereby 6 key strategic areas have been identified to accelerate service delivery:

  • Transformation
  • School Sport
  • Institutional Facilities
  • Mass Mobilisation (e.g. Magnificent Fridays)
  • Recreation
  • Funding

The Directorate partners, especially the Department of Economic Affairs and Tourism, in hosting major national and international events. The Department concentrates mostly on developmental aspects of skateboarding. Additionally, the Department has started a golf development initiative which has been very successful.

The Recreation sub programme is responsible for Corporate Recreation and Recrehab (targeting to assist with the rehabilitation of targeted groups). The equitable share budget for this sub- programme is very limited and they depend on partnerships with other provincial departments and NGO’s to effect these functions.

The role of School Sport is limited to rendering support to learners for provincial and national participation, as well as high performance programmes. Cooperation with the provincial DoE is very important and a lack thereof often leads to non delivery.

Purpose

To promote sport development  and recreational advancement.

Functions

  1. The provision of sport development function.
