Directorate: Sport Support Services
Sport & Recreation Service Providers:
Sport and Recreation Service Providers transfer funds to prioritised sport and recreation organisations (national federations), and monitors the use of these funds in line with service level agreements signed between the national federation and the department. Funding to national federations is provided for administration, development, club development and/or discretionary funding which can be requested for international participation, hosting international events or corporate governance. Funds are also transferred to the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) for the delivery of high performance sport. This sub-programme administers the transfers made to the two public entities, namely Boxing South Africa and the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport as well as to Non-Governmental Organisations such as loveLife for the promotion of HIV and Aids awareness through sport; and the Sports Trust and SCORE for community sport.
Club Development supports the formation or revitalisation of clubs and leagues at a local level in conjunction with national federations that provide technical support and coach development in addition to monitoring and evaluating the programme. Funds are used to procure sports equipment and attire that the department provides directly to the beneficiaries.
Education & Training:
Education and Training coordinates the development and updating of generic education and training materials, and monitors the development of the human resource base necessary for sustaining sport and recreation. Funding is mainly used to develop sport specific South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) unit standards; produce manuals and train Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA) accredited facilitators.
