SCHOOL SPORT LEAGUES Advocacy on establishment of school leagues in 4 sporting codes commenced in January 2011. To date almost 3000 schools have registered throughout the country, the provinces are preparing for the cluster tournaments. National launch of the leagues and distribution of donated sport material was halted to give way to the political mandate of developing an integrated school sport plan.
SCHOOL SPORT CODE DEVELOPMENT PLANS Federations have worked jointly with interim school code committees to prepare national code development plans that are inclusive of school sport All code development plans are aligned to the Long Term Coaching Development Plan, the Long Term Participant Development Plan and the South African Sports for Life plan that are regulatory instruments developed by SRSA and SASCOC Code plans are inclusive of national school leagues, capacity building, talent identification and development
COACH TRAINING While a key focus for school sport leagues is the provision of a progressive competitive structure and a mechanism for the identification of talent, it will be essential to retain the appropriate balance between play, practice and competition for children and youth. This must be supported by suitably skilled coaches that have the ability to guide the improvement of children and youth in line with their need and stage of development.
TRAINING OF EDUCATORS To deliver on its mandate SRSA will rollout the new SA Coaching Framework as a pilot targeting educators from 2011 to 2014 The process will be coordinated by SASCOC through a SLA with SRSA 16 Federations have been identified to participate in the first phase of rollout on condition that they meet the set criteria SRSA will support federations to launch their coaching programmes nationally and provincially
TRAINING OF EDUCATORS A massive media campaign will be launched to popularise the programme amongst the public to invite their applications Advertisements will be placed in all the national and local newspapers to invite trainers and coaches All trainers and coaches will be data based and tracked The process will be monitored by HSRC and an impact report will be tabled annually
