Title: USSASA PRESENTATION TO PARLIAMENT ON 01 MARCH 2005

USSASA PRESENTATION TO PARLIAMENT ON 01 MARCH 2005
  • USSASA BACKGROUND
  • USSASA is the National organisation co-ordinating
    school sport in South Africa. It is recognised
    by government and SASCOC in this role.

2
  • USSASA is a multi-coded organisation modelled on
    the sports structure of a school. It is made up
    of a National Executive Committee supervising 26
    Code Committees, an Indigenous Games Committee as
    well as an LSEN Committee. (This national
    structure together with representatives from all
    the Provinces and Regions make up the National
    General Council)

3
  • USSASA has 9 Provincial structures which are
    similar to the National structure, 44 Regional
    structures, 206 District/Zone structures and 1114
    Circuit/Sub-Zone structures to which about 30 000
    schools are affiliated.

4
  • The biggest problem at the moment is that there
    is no funding available for all the activities
    taking place at Regional, District and Circuit
    levels while National and Provincial activities
    are partly funded. Poor children still do not
    fully enjoy their right to participate in sport.

5
  • 14 million learners and more than 300 000
    educators, parents and other volunteers are
    involved in the organisation at all levels from
    School to International.
  • Considering that most learners participate in at
    least 2 and some up to 6 codes of sport for both
    recreational as well as high performance
    purposes, it can be estimated that participation
    levels in school sport can reach 40 million if
    there was sufficient funding.

6
  • The Codes played under USSASA are
  • Aquatics Athletics Badminton
  • Baseball Basketball Boxing
  • Chess Cricket Dance Sport
  • Drummies Equestrian Football
  • Golf Gymnastics Handball
  • Hockey Korfball Netball
  • Pool Rugby Shooting
  • Squash Softball Table Tennis
  • Tennis Volleyball LSEN Codes
  • Indigenous
  • games

7
  • RELATIONSHIPS WITH SENIOR
  • FEDERATIONS
  • USSASA has healthy relations with most of the
    Federations whose sport codes are played at
    school level.
  • USSASA has a responsibility to ensure that
    relations with all its Senior Federations are
    good. The assistance of the SASCOC board may be
    needed in this regard.

8
  • USSASA AFFILIATIONS
  • USSASA is affiliated to the Confederation of
    School Sports Associations of Southern Africa
    (COSSASA) and the International Schoolsport
    Federation (ISF).
  • USSASA is an Associate member of SASCOC. All
    Team South Africa responsibilities of USSASA
    have been transferred to SASCOC. We are very
    happy that SASCOC has set up a School Sport
    Commission to take care of this.

9
  • The placement of the MASS PARTICIPATION component
    of USSASA has still not been fully addressed.
  • USSASA understands that government has accepted
    all MASS PARTICIPATION responsibilities in
    sport. The details of the delivery structures
    thereof have not yet been discussed and finalised
    with all affected stakeholders.

10
  • NEED FOR STATUTORY RECOGNITION
  • FOR USSASA AS PART OF THE MASS
  • PARTICIPATION DELIVERY STRUCTURE
  • The statutory recognition, appreciation and
    protection of some 300 000 volunteers delivering
    Mass Participation and Sport-for-all programmes
    for millions of learners in our country needs to
    be seriously considered.

11
  • The alternative would be for government to employ
    thousands of coaches, officials and
    administrators.
  • Such a structure would possibly take the shape of
    the Arts Councils / the Aids Council / the HSRC
    or the CSIR etc.
  • Such a structure would also facilitate
    co-operation between various departments for
    addressing various government priorities (Crime
    HIV/Aids Poverty etc).

12
  • There may also be a need to regulate the
    functioning and funding of such a structure to
    ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of the
    envisaged programmes as well as its relationship
    with National Federations.
  • Such legislation would also go a long way to
    easing the beaurocratic tensions between the
    Education and Sports Departments at National and
    Provincial levels.

13
  • USSASA PROGRAMMES
  • USSASA runs development programmes from National
    level cascading to the local level and schools.
    These are mainly human resource development
    projects (admin coaching technical) but
    sometimes include supply of equipment, provision
    of facilities and upgrading of facilities. All
    these depend on available sponsorship or funding

14
  • USSASA and all its structures organises
    recreational and competitive events at all
    levels.
  • SCHOOL-TO-NATIONAL LEVEL EVENTS
  • Aquatics Athletics
  • Winter Games Cross Country
  • Summer Games
  • Sponsored events
  • Chappies MTN Kay Motsepe Shoprite Loveli
    fe

15
  • INTERNATIONAL LEVEL EVENTS
  • COSSASA Athletics
  • COSSASA Ball Games
  • Football Netball Volleyball Basketball
  • ISF Championships (School teams)
  • Swimming Athletics Tennis
  • Basketball Volleyball Football
  • Gymnastics Table Tennis Badminton
  • Handball.

16
  • ISF Gymnasiade
  • (Representative teams Every 4 years))
  • Athletic Aquatics Gymnastics
  • Pacific School Games
  • (Representative teams Every 4 years)
  • Athletics Aquatics Basketball (For the
    different ability groups)

17
  • USSASA ADMINISTRATION
  • USSASA National Office
  • Rented Office
  • Office Furniture and equipment
  • Running expenses for the office
  • Support for the structure
  • Staffing requirements 1 General Manager
  • 4 Managers
  • 6 support staff

18
  • Provincial and Regional Offices
  • Office space
  • Furniture and equipment
  • Running expenses for the office
  • Support for the structure
  • Staffing requirements Office Manager
  • Support staff

19
  • TRANSFORMATION OF SPORT IN S.A.
  • USSASAS ROLE
  • USSASAs potential to contribute towards the
    transformation of sports in South Africa is
    guaranteed by the existence of its structures in
    all corners of South Africa.

20
  • The success of its interventions depend on the
    availability of funds to take ALL sport codes to
    ALL the corners of the country
  • Talent Identification and Development must happen
    (and accurate records must be kept) from the
    lowest level (Circuit level) of the structure.

21
  • A very close relationship between the USSASA
    structures and the Sports Academy system is
    crucial for this.
  • Regular recreational and competitive sports
    activities must happen (and be seen to be
    happening) at Circuit and District level.

22
  • USSASA volunteers must be kept motivated
    (especially those operating at the lower levels)
    to drive these processes.
  • Identified talent must be fed into the academy
    system and the development programmes of the
    Senior Federations.

23
  • The best talent within a school and from Circuit
    activities must be directed to the local clubs.
    (USSASA must continue providing opportunities for
    all other learners)
  • Emerging talent at District and Regional events
    must be directed to the Satellite academies for
    further development and mentoring.

24
  • Talent identified at Provincial and National
    events must be directed to the Provincial and the
    National Academies.
  • USSASA must have dedicated TID managers/officials
    at all levels of the structure.
