    TRANSFORMATION and Development EFFORTS
  • 2.1 INFORMATION ON INITIATIVES AND SUCCESSES
  • The inclusion of black and colour were in all
    teams were effectively implemented and it can be
    stated that every player was accepted by all in
    the Mpumalanga Rugby Union and enjoyed and also
    enhanced their rugby playing skills during the
    inception of their efforts.
  • It should be noted that players of colour were
    selected on merit and performance, which ensure
    that no negative feelings were created amongst
    fellow players. The players also preferred this
    concept and performed on par and better than
    players in the Mpumalanga Rugby Union and any
    opposing sides.

Introduction
  • Mpumalanga Rugby Union has identified a need for
    more effective national co-ordination in the
    promotion and development of rugby in the
    Mpumalanga province.
  • Improved collaboration and co-operation across
    the province has been identified as a priority to
    bring the issues of the province to focus. To
    reduce the fragmentation of effort, grow capacity
    and better utilise resources.
  • There is lack of uniformity and consistency in
    the efforts of individual Clubs when promoting
    and developing rugby. Mpumalanga has a strong
    culture of rugby and abundance of talent and yet
    our participation is declining.
  •  
  • Rugby is dying in certain parts of the province
    and there are communities who were never provided
    with opportunities to participate in the game.
    The general trend for youth is not committing
    long term and not valuing the role of ongoing
    participation.
  • There is a lot of competition for membership by
    other codes and that is eating out of our base.
    There is no incentive in the form of a structure
    to identify sporting talent and to develop it
    towards representative standards throughout the
    province.
  •  
  • There are serious challenges facing rugby at the
    top echelons, which have not been adequately
    addressed even after 14 years of unity. These
    unique challenges cannot be overcome unless there
    is a common strategy that informs our actions.
  •  
  • There will be more delivery from current
    resources as well as getting a greater return on
    new investments.

10
Strategy Implementation Game Plan
  • Coaching Of Coaches
  •  
  • In order to have more schools playing rugby there
    will be recruitment drives to encourage
    schoolteachers to be Coaches.
  •  
  • The Coaches will be empowered to be able to
    render quality coaching to players. Coaches
    should produce quality results and preserve the
    value of rugby.
  •  
  • Through quality coaching increased particpation
    in the game and retention will be encouraged.
  •  
  • Coaches are custodians of our sport and therefore
    they need support and resources in order to
    create a world-class environment for learning and
    development even in sub-economic areas.
  •  
  • Coaching is the key component of what defines
    success in rugby and is critical to the
    development of effective systems and structures
    within rugby.
  •  
  • Coaches education pathway should be linked to
    athlete development.
  •  
  • Coaching Of Players
  •  
  • There has to be an effective career pathway from
    junior to elite levels for players.
  • Coaching at entry level should focus on the
    fundamentals of the game and not on results.

11
Strategy Implementation Game Plan
  • Monitoring and Evaluating
  •  
  • The impact of the programmes will be measured
    regularly against the objectives.
  •  
  • Evaluate and Correct
  •  
  • The performance is to be measured continually
    against the action plan.
  • When not achieving targets and goals find out
    why.
  • Find ways to solve problems.
  • Use other people who have expertise in the field
    to help.
  • Find out on how to improve performance and
    processes.
  • Develop new initiatives.
  • Select the right people to do development work.
  • Develop the skills and capacity of Development
    Officers.

12
Strategy Implementation Game Plan
  • Principles
  • In implementing the strategy several principles
    will be followed
  • Ownership
  • To ensure that the initiatives within the
    strategy are implemented and bring about the
    changes required the Province need to own,
    challenge, drive and improve the programme rather
    than it being driven by SA Rugby.
  • Continuous Improvement
  • The examination of progress made and initiatives
    that are working as much as those that are not
    willing to be critical to achieving the desired
    outcome. A factor in creating a suitable
    development environment is striving for
    continuous improvement.
  • Partnership
  • Implementing a development programme needs to be
    on a partnership basis in order to ensure that
    resources and efforts integrated to bring about
    the best results.

Strategy
  • This strategy will support the delivery of the
    vision by identifying provincial goals and
    targets that use the knowledge, skills, talent
    and resources from across the province to support
    current and future initiatives.
  • The strategy will focus on the delivery of our
    goals, each of which has measurable strategies
    and targets.

18
Key Processes to the Achieve the Strategy
  • 1.1    Grow The Game
  • Organise projects and events to attract youth to
    rugby fun and enjoyment
  • Coaching clinics for school children and in
    communities to attract young players of all

    participation.
  • Spread knowledge, skills and best practise across
    the country. 

19
  • 1.2 Recruit and Develop Volunteers
  • In order for the programme to be successful it
    should be sustainable.
  • The developing communities should take ownership
    of the programme and form part of the planning
    and implementation processes.
  • A strong volunteer base should be encouraged to
    assist in coaching, refereeing and general
    administration.
  • Former rugby players and rugby enthusiasts are
    the people to be targeted for this purpose.
  • It must be people who show passion and commitment
    not individuals interested in benefits (WIFM).
  • Formal training and capacity building programmes
    should be provided for the volunteers.
  • The Programmes must be designed to suite the
    level of the candidates (academic and
    non-academic)
  • The ultimate goal is to have highly empowered
    volunteers and Development Officers
  • 2. Form Partnerships

20
  • 3. Improve Retention Capacity
  • Develop programmes that continually produce and
    retain an abundance of rugby players and rugby
    personnel.
  • Identify and prioritise the key barriers to
    participation that restrict participation.
  • Develop and co-ordinate programme of action that
    will remove the top priority barriers.
  • 4. Improve Stakeholder Relationship
  • Create understanding of the strategy and plans
    with the stakeholders.
  • Effective communication of all the events and
    projects and the results with pictures.
  • Keep everyone updated as we move along towards
    the set time. 

21
  • 5. Develop and Capacitate Development Officers
  • An effective and systematic development programme
    should be driven by well-empowered personnel.
  • Only development programmes that include
    satisfaction enjoyment and celebration of success
    will lead to the realisation of our goals.
  • The Development Officers should possess
    quality-coaching abilities.
  • The officers should be equipped with the
    necessary skills for accurate talent
    identification and development.
  • All the officers should have sound administration
    skills in order to utilise time and resources
    efficiently and effectively.
  • The Development officers should be empowered with
    conflict solving skills.
  • They should be able to play all roles that make
    rugby to be played.
  • Training in marketing the programme and skills to
    raise funds through sponsorship and other means.
  • 6. Develop Funding Opportunities
  • SA Rugby cannot solely fund the Development
    Programme.
  • If we are to succeed. There are other sectors
    that need to be involved in a co-ordinated way.
    Local authorities, Sports Trusts, The National
    Lottery and the Government Departments. The
    emphasis will be on aligning community resources
    to complement those from Mpumalanga Rugby Union.

22
Programme Flagship
  • Rammetjie Rugby
  • It is a sampling programme to deliver the rugby
    experience of rugby to children and parents in an
    accessible, welcoming, fun and convenient
    environment. The programme will help boost
    player numbers at junior level.
  • The programme will focus on physical activity and
    code specific skills development. The kids will
    get training for 6 weeks and then start
    participating in games at local, zonal and
    regional level.
  • Each Region will hold a Rammetjie Rugby Day where
    Club teams will play. The focus and target
    market is children that have never played rugby
    before. Newly recruited coaches and volunteer
    will cut their teeth at this level.
  • From here the players will graduate to schools
    rugby programmes.
  • This is where the career of future stars will be
    nurtured. All the necessary skills and methods
    which are essential for the road ahead will be
    dispensed at this level.

Critical Success Factors
  • Development being seen as a process rather than
    an outcome i.e. long term rather than short term.
  • A strong communication network and collaboration
    between all stakeholders.
  • Athlete development system to ensure the
    longevity of athletes to remain in the system.
  • Uniformity in the approach to development adopted
    by all Clubs and Schools with creation of
    opportunity for all as the centrepiece.
  • Emphasis on quality core skills development,
    motivation of participants rather than winning
    competitions as an absolute priority at junior
    level.
  • Recruitment and retention of players and staff at
    sub-elite level to receive more attention.

25
Critical Success Factors
  • Each Region will endorse the strategy through its
    own internal processes.
  • Each region will elect a Coordinating Committee
    to make recommendations according to needs
    relating to the implementation of the strategy.
  • All the Stakeholders in rugby development should
    be represented on the Committee i.e. Schools
    Primary and Post Primary, Clubs Urban and Rural,
    Sub Unions, Administrators.
  • The Development Manager or Coordinator appointed
    by the Union will lead the implementation of the
    strategy.
  • An operational budget will be provided annually
    by MRU to fund the projects and initiatives
    approved by the Co-ordinating Committee.
  • There will be monthly reports on progress given
    by the Project Managers and Development Officers.
  • Immediate action will be taken to re align
    implementation to meet objectives and to adapt
    outcomes to be relevant to current changes in
    rugby.
  • Emphasis is on improved collaboration and
    co-operation across the country to create a
    national view that would bring the issues of the
    country into focus, reduce fragmentation of
    effort, leverage skills, grow leadership
    capability and better utilise resources.

26
What will Success look like?
  • Our five (5) year plan (2006 to 2011) long-term
    goal is to see more players in Mpumalanga
    enjoying success through rugby.
  • In the short to medium term, the strategy will be
    successful if all the role players and
    stakeholders embrace a better understanding of
    indicators of an effective programme.

27
Key Indicators of Success include
  • Increased mass participation in rugby by players
    at all levels. More schools will play rugby and
    more coaches will join the game.
  • The provision of quality coaching to all.
  • More youth clubs for boys and girls in areas
    where rugby was not played and community
    involvement.
  • More competitions and rugby programmes at
    subsequent levels of specialisation towards elite
    levels.
  • Well co-ordinated projects driven in
    collaboration with various stakeholders and
    active partnerships.
  • Increased parent and community support for the
    game.
  • More quality players coming through from all
    communities and making impact at the top echelons
    of the game.

28

30
Magligen Declaration U.N Every person is
entitled to participate in sport including women,
young people, the elderly and the disabled.
  • The worst enemy of rugby development is lip
    service, centralising the programme at the
    headquarters.
  • Children do not only have the right to play, they
    also have the right to provision of opportunity
    to play.

31
Areas of Focus for Game Development
  • Developing the next generation of rugby players
  • Boosting player numbers in junior, senior clubs
    and schools
  • Create a strong volunteer base and support
  • Help schools, clubs and the volunteers to manage
    growth
  • Provide new and additional resources to train and
    assist club administrators, coaches and referees
    etc.
  • Creating new rugby clubs in targeted areas likely
    to support rugby growth.

32
Rugby Development Approach towards Growth
  • As much as a lot is said about the strong culture
    of rugby that exists in certain communities of
    the Mpumalanga.
  • The truth is that the game is not played in all
    the areas. There is still a huge task facing the
    rugby organisation in the area to take the game
    to new areas.
  • In the former Home Land areas alone there are
    hundreds of thousands of people that do not know
    about the game I.e Camslushwa, Kabokweni,
    KaNyamazane, KaBokweni, Daantjie, Bushbuck Range,
    Haziview, ext.
  • It is imperative to form strategic partnership
    with the local authorities and the Department of
    Culture, Sport and Recreation.
  • Rugby should provide expertise and direction to
    these institution in their social upliftment
    programmes.
  • The programmes should be target focussed in order
    to be sustainable.

33
Rugby Development Approach towards Growth
  • Activities
  • Recruitment of Coaches including Female Coaches
    from targeted schools and training there of
    through Courses and Coaches Seminars.
  • Recruitment of players through coaching clinics
    for target age groups Under 12 boys and girls.
  • Introduction of Rammetjie Rugby Mini rugby and
    its rules.
  • Game between teams should be arranged and
    festivals should be regularly organised.
  • Assitance
  • Transport of teams to the games
  • Kit for participants and coaches should be
    provided
  • Refreshments for participants
  • Certificates for Female Coaches and creation
    clear career pathways for coaches and players.
