“The aim of Sport and Recreation South Africa is to maximize access, development and excellence at all levels of participation in Sport and Recreation to improve social cohesion, nation building and the quality of life of all South Africans.” SRSA “strives to support the creation of an enabling environment and provide support to increase the number of participants in Sport and Recreation in our country and communities.” SRSA “supports recognized Sport and Recreation bodies and public entities; and monitor and report on their performance, facilitates the provision and management of sustainable Sport and Recreation infrastructure and facilities to all South Africans especially the needy and poor.” We further co-ordinate inter and intragovernmental Sport and Recreation relations and support the hosting of identified major events. Over the Medium Term, Sport and Recreation SA continued and will continue to use Sport and Recreation as a developmental instrument, in line with all national priorities especially those that are aimed at fostering inclusive citizenship, physical wellbeing, skills development and economic growth. In this regard, our work is integrated to the Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF) which is an official tool to directly articulate our government electoral mandate that is embedded in our vision of contributing to and promoting the creation of a ‘Better Life for All.’
