Strategic Plan
     for the fiscal years
         2014 – 2019
FOREWORD BY THE MINISTER
As reported in the Sport and Recreation South Africa (SRSA) 2012-2016 Strategic Plan, sport and recreation delegates at
the National Sport and Recreation Indaba in November 2011 went further to vocalise and amplify their firm belief that, ‘the
National Sport & Recreation Plan has a potential to reconstruct and revitalise the delivery of sport and recreation towards
building an active and winning nation that equitably improves the lives of all South Africans’.

These men and women brought together by their passion for sport & recreation, shared with us their dream of a South
African sport & recreation landscape that we should all work towards. They detailed this dream in words and we reduced it
to paper and ink and coined it Vision 2030! Not only does this Vision give meaning to our strategic objective of “an active and winning nation” but it also gives
purpose to the essence of our existence and spells out the core values that enjoin us as a sporting fraternity to transform and develop sport for the better.

This year as we celebrate two decades of freedom and democracy, SRSA is closing the chapter on its Strategic Plan 2012-2016 and ushering in its strategic
perspective for 2014-2019. We are therefore taking stock (as we did in our Annual Report 2012/2013) of how far we have traversed in our second year
marching towards the attainment of Vision 2030. We are also aware that as we march towards the Vision 2030 of the sport and recreation sector, we are
marching in unison together with all our people towards the fulfillment of the objectives of the National Development Plan (NDP).

We are pleased to infuse in this Strategic Plan 2014-2019 the implementation targets of the National Sport & Recreation Plan (NSRP) as well as to consider
its costs and monitoring mechanism. We costed the NSRP and presented it to relevant government institutions for further consideration. Our nation would
have to budget at least an amount of R10 billion towards the fulfillment of the objectives of the NSRP which some, if not all, are integrated in this strategic
plan. It is also fulfilling to learn that the NSRP has been anchored in the heart of the NDP. We are enthused that the NSRP rests on the giant shoulders of the
national development agenda of this country.

The NSRP concretely anchors our mandate on five critical pillars which have been given shape in this strategic plan 2014-2019 and in our business model
and strategic approach going forward. Interestingly, the frequent question always posed to us as government is how far have we gone towards the
establishment of an ‘enabling environment’ wherein our ‘winning’ and ‘active nation’ can thrive?

We firmly believe that the tenets of our Strategic Plan 2014-2019 seek to answer such questions with those answers provided in our NSRP and the NDP
going forward into the next 20 years of freedom and democracy. This, as we continue to make a “Case for Sport” just like we did before, as in our 2012-2016
strategic document. Therefore, we are happy and equally excited to present to the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa and its people, the SRSA 2014-
2019 Strategic Plan.

Thank you.

4.3 Policy mandates

United Nations

Millennium Development Goals (MDGs): In its report, Sport for Development and Peace: Towards Achieving the Millennium Development
Goals, the UN Inter-Agency Task Force specifically concluded that ‘the fundamental elements of sport make it a viable and practical tool to
support the achievement of the MDGs’. Considering the targets of the MDGs, one needs to realise that the contribution of sport and recreation
towards the achievements of the MDGs is more indirect in nature.

                                In general sport has an impact on health and reduces the likelihood of many diseases. Sports programmes
                                serve as an effective tool for social mobilisation, supporting health activities such as HIV and AIDS education
Sport can be a significant      and immunisation campaigns. It is also a key site and natural draw for volunteer involvement. Furthermore,
economic force, providing       participation in sport supports the preservation of a clean and healthy environment.
    employment and
   contributing to local          Sport for Development and Peace International Working Group: The Department is playing a leading role
      development                 in the development and implementation of UN policies related to sport for development and peace. The Sport
                                  for Development and Peace International Working Group (SDP IWG) was launched at the 2004 Athens
                                  Summer Olympic Games. The SDP IWG focuses on developing and assisting governments in implementing
                                  the policy and programme recommendations outlined in the policy document “Harnessing the Power of Sport
for Development and Peace: Recommendations to Governments” published in 2008. In the updated White Paper on sport and recreation as
well as in the NSRP the importance of using sport as a tool for development and peace is emphasised. It is therefore important that SRSA build
on the successes already achieved in this regard since our democracy in 1994. South Africa, represented by the Deputy Minister of Sport and
Recreation, was appointed chair of the Executive Board of the SDP IWG in 2012. Although UN Resolution 65/4: Sport as a means to promote
education, health, development and peace was adopted by the General Assembly in 2010 there is still a need for a Working Paper in this
regard that outlines practical programmes and initiatives for implementation. South Africa has the capacity to contribute significantly in this
regard.

On 23 August 2013 the United Nations General Assembly approved, by consensus, a proclamation establishing an International Day of Sport
for Development and Peace. The Day will be celebrated each year on 6 April, the date of the opening of the first modern Olympic Games in
Athens in 1896. The UN invited all member states, UN systems and all other relevant stakeholders to co-operate, observe and raise awareness
of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. South Africa will activate awareness campaigns in this regard.

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)

Many governments cannot be legally bound by a non-governmental document such as the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code.
Governments have accordingly drafted, pursuant to the Code, an International Convention under the auspices of UNESCO to allow formal
recognition of WADA and the Code. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) facilitated the
International Convention against Doping in Sport, which was adopted on 19 October 2005 and implemented from 1 February 2007. The
Convention provides the legal framework with which all governments can address the growing prevalence and increasing use of performance-
enhancing substances and methods in sport. The Convention also helps ensure coordination of testing and the development of education,
                                 training and research programmes. The Convention met the objectives of providing an internationally
                                 recognised legal framework to:

       Although there is an      •   Ensure that governments take actions against doping in sport that are complementary to those already

    Africa will lobby for this   The Convention also outlines clear obligations required of governments. State Parties are required to:
    during the period of this    • Adopt appropriate measures at the national and international level consistent with the principles of the
          strategic plan.           Code;
                                 • Encourage all forms of international cooperation aimed at protecting athletes and ethics in sport and
                                    sharing the results of research;
                                 • Foster international cooperation between State Parties and with WADA in particular.

                                  However, the Convention is a permissive document and it provides flexibility in the approach governments
can take for implementation, either by way of legislation, regulation, policies or administrative practices.


In its twenty years existence the International Anti-Doping Agreement (IADA) has evolved into a unique and effective organisation,
committed to combating the practice of doping in sport. Initially conceived as an inter-governmental organisation, the IADA has evolved into an
effective partnership between governments and their respective national anti-doping organisations (NADOs).

South Africa, represented by SAIDS, is a member of the Institute of National Anti-Doping Organisations (iNADO), which is the international

SPORT AND RECREATION SOUTH AFRICA 2014-2019 STRATEGIC PLAN                                                           16 | P a g e
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code is the document that harmonises regulations regarding anti-doping in sport across all sports
and all countries of the world. The Code provides a framework for anti-doping policies, rules and regulations for sport organisations and public
authorities. The WADA Code and the UNESCO Convention Against Doping in Sport have been identified in the new IADA as strategic issues
and alliances for the IADA. WADA has challenged the IADA to contribute to the development of a more coordinated and effective government
role, in the international fight against doping in sport. In response to these challenges, IADA will engage in discussions with both WADA and
UNESCO to advance more structured relationships. South Africa, represented by the Director-General for Sport and Recreation, resumed
chairmanship of IADA in August 2012, and this term will end in December 2014. SRSA is also represented on the Central Drug Authority
(CDA) and on the inter-governmental committee on substance abuse.

The ever expanding complexity of doping in sport (e.g. combating organised crime, classification of health foods, controlling the
manufacturing/importation/distribution of doping products, etc) requires both new capacities and commitments for both governments and
national anti-doping agencies. In recognition of this, the IADA Action Plan will continue to place a strong emphasis on projects and initiatives
that reinforce the “Sharing of Best Practices” to address these matters.

WADA is organised under the Law of Switzerland, with its headquarters in Montreal, Canada, and created for the purpose, among others, of
promoting the fight against doping in sport. The purposes of the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Programme which
supports it are:
• To protect the athletes' fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport and thus promote health, fairness and equality for athletes
   worldwide, and
• To ensure harmonised, coordinated and effective anti-doping programmes at the international and national level with regard to detection,
   deterrence and prevention of doping.

SRSA supported WADA to host the 4th World Conference on Doping in Sport in Johannesburg in November 2013. Following the adoption of
the resolutions made regarding the WADA Code, SRSA will need to support SAIDS in adhering to the WADA Code with the new amendments
agreed upon.

South Africa plans to appeal to UNESCO to announce an “International Year of Anti-doping” during 2016 to coincide with the hosting of the Rio
Olympic and Paralympic Games.

White Paper on Sport and Recreation for the Republic of South Africa

The first White Paper on sport and recreation was released in 1996 as the first official policy on sport and recreation since the establishment of
the Ministry on 1 July 1994. Five years later the White Paper was updated, however, it did not reflect the institutional changes made in 2004.
Nor did it adequately reflect government’s understanding of transformation of the sport and recreation sector based on the sector’s role in social
development, the sports economy, sport as a human right, sport in development and peace, sport and the environment, an outcomes-based
approach to governance and the proactive role of a developmental state.

The third revision of the White Paper addressed the afore-mentioned issues. This White Paper was finalised in 2012 together with the
development of a Road Map that outlined priority areas for sport and recreation.

The White Paper emphasises that an increased and focused commitment at all levels of sport would be advantageous for the country since this
could reap great health, economic, social and international benefits. This being the case, the government must consider expenditure on sport
and recreation as a worthwhile, and indeed, a necessary investment in the future of our country and its people.

The 2012 White Paper states that the success of sports development in South Africa is dependent upon the smooth implementation of a
system with clear definitions of authority, responsibility and accountability combined with seamless progression. For South Africa to be
successful in sport and recreation, it is essential that there be one authority charged with the responsibility to develop, coordinate and monitor a
comprehensive system established in accordance with a broadly agreed national strategy. SRSA is assigned this responsibility and must
ensure that the required sports development system is in place and fully operational. Furthermore, SRSA will support those responsible for
                              delivery with available resources. SRSA will also oversee the implementation of projects and evaluate results to
                              ensure that it delivers value for public funding and provides feedback with a view to further policy development.
    The White Paper on
                               The White Paper on sport and recreation provides the national policy direction (the “what”), and formed the basis
   sport and recreation
                               for the development of government’s first ever NSRP, (the “how”) nurturing a vibrant sports system that
   provides the national
                               encourages the growth and development of the sports sector and the equitable delivery of sport to all to ensure
      policy direction
                               that South Africa is both “an active and a winning nation”.

                               It is foreseen that this third edition of the White Paper will remain applicable for the period of this Strategic Plan.




SPORT AND RECREATION SOUTH AFRICA 2014-2019 STRATEGIC PLAN                                                                   18 | P a g e
National Sport and Recreation Plan

The formulation of the NSRP covered a period of more than 10 months and included contributions from all role-players that comprise the sports
sector in the country. The NSRP, underpinned by a declaration of intent, was adopted at the National Sports Indaba that took place in Midrand
from 21 to 22 November 2011 with the theme: “From policy to practice”.

                                    The strategic focus of the NSRP is to reconstruct and revitalise the sport and recreation sector for an active
                                    and winning nation whilst improving the quality of lives of all South Africans.

          active nation             The NSRP commences with a background reflecting historically where we come from and some of the
                                    significant milestones achieved in establishing a democratic, non-racial sports system for our country. This
        winning nation              is followed by a preamble, the process of developing the NSRP and the legal framework regulating the
                                    NSRP. When describing the Vision 2030 (linked to the time frames of the National Development Plan) the
                                    expected outcomes and the ideal future for a South African sports system are expressed. Section 1 of the
    enabling environment            NSRP concludes by identifying the core values desired to guide the implementation of the NSRP.

                                    Section 2 is essentially the nucleus of the NSRP as it provides details of the 3 core pillars of
                                    implementation, namely: (1) active nation (2) winning nation; and (3) an enabling environment. These
                                    pillars are underpinned by transversal issues and by the notion of utilising sport as a tool to achieve national
                                    and global priorities.

Section 3 of the NSRP provides clarity on the demarcation of roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders in the sector.

Section 4 offers a conclusion that details a way forward in terms of:
• Planning, monitoring and budgeting cycles
• Collaborative agreements
• Coordination and cooperation
• Restructuring
• Marketing and communication.

At the heart of the NSRP is a Transformation Charter and Scorecard that is intended to bring about the establishment of a competitive and
demographically representative sport system guided by a value set based on the following key principles:
• Equal opportunity
• Redress
• Fairness and just behaviour

•    Equitable resource distribution
•    Empowerment and affirmation.

As the Minister of Sport and Recreation is the sole custodian of sport and recreation in the country, it follows that the implementation of the
NSRP places considerable responsibilities upon SRSA. Not only is the national Department responsible for policy and legislation, it is also
assigned the responsibility to create an enabling environment for all South Africans to participate in sport and recreation and to promote and
develop the sports economy and industry in all its facets. Oversight, monitoring and evaluation are additional roles assigned to SRSA as it is
essential that there is a coordinated, integrated and aligned approach by the entire sport and recreation sector to achieve the objectives of the
NSRP.

The successful implementation of the NSRP forms a substantial part of the activities undertaken by SRSA over the medium term and
concomitantly the strategies adopted by SRSA. The outputs to be delivered have been scheduled as follows over the period of this Strategic
Plan.
