SPORT AND RECREATION PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE

ACTIVITIES OF FEDERATIONS AND LEGISLATION: SUBCOMMITTEE REPORT

Chair:
Ms N Bhengu

Documents Handed Out:
Guidelines for Sport and Recreation Clusters (Appendix 1)
Summary of Sponsorships in SA Sport. (Appendix 2 )

SUMMARY
Committee discussed its programme and subcommittee recommendations. Members resolved to amend the programme with new dates. On the issue of recommendations for guidelines and resolutions it was generally agreed that these should be adopted.

MINUTES
Programme
Regarding the programme, the chair informed the committee that 25 October had been set aside for an activity in the Eastern Cape which the committee would be attending. On 29 October there would be an evaluation workshop where achievements and shortcomings for the current financial year would be discussed. The committee was informed that 5 November would be reserved for a presentation by the United Cricket Board.

Sub-Committee Recommendations
Regarding the resolutions of the task team members were invited to make comments. It was pointed out that some of the resolutions were not for the evaluation workshop as this was an administrative error in compiling of these recommendations. The Committee focussed on resolutions 1-3.

Discussion
Mr Lee (DP) pointed out that currently he did not have any comment on the issues mentioned. It was only after consultation with the party that any input could be forthcoming in this regard.

Mr Chauke (ANC) commented on "the need to invite the provinces, SALGA, etc". he did not understand this provision. The chair pointed out that the document needed to be worked on -the committee would, therefore, examine resolutions 1-3 only.

Dr Schoeman (ANC) pointed out that these points were not cast in stone as they were intended to serve as broad guidelines for the evaluation workshop. Amendments could therefore still be effected if so desired.

Mr Ntuli (ANC) suggested that due to time constraints, the committee should adopt the resolutions as amended and move forward.

Members of the committee agreed.

Guidelines for Sport & Recreation Clusters
Dr Schoeman pointed out that these guidelines were not inflexible, amendments could be made where necessary. He highlighted the facilitatory and monitoring roles of the committee on the various sporting federations. He noted that it was the federation's prerogative to invite the committee to their functions.

Talent development at school level was prioritised and the different federations should indicate what process they had engaged in to ensure this. He referred members to the rest of the document for more details (see Appendix 1 ).

Discussion
Mr Lee (DP) generally agreed with these guidelines but wanted more attention given to women and sponsorship issues. He felt that this should read as follows,' sponsorship generally and facilities for ladies and for the physically challenged'.

Mr Chauke (ANC) proposed that on shared responsibilites, where the various sporting stakeholders were outlined, broadcasters should also form part of the group and noted that this was otherwise a good document to start with.

Ms Lamani (ANC) commented that on the issue of sports facilities for women and the physically challenged, women's facilities were well catered for through the already existing multi-purpose centres.

Mr Chauke (ANC) proposed that with the benefit of the sponsorship documents at their disposal, the committee should in its programme for 2003 include a slot where sponsors could be engaged who were supporting the development of sport.

The meeting was adjourned.

Appendix 1
GUIDELINES FOR PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE
SPORT AND RECREATION CLUSTERS

1. PURPOSE
The purpose of the clusters is of a dual nature.

1.1 FACILITATING
Besides representing the political voice (aspirations, problems, needs, etc) of the voters, the members (parties), through the committee, has a legislative and oversight function. This places us in a unique position to fulfil a facilitating role amongst the relevant sporting codes, government and other relevant sporting bodies.

1.2 MONITORING
The oversight role of the committee is, however, not limited to government, but also to the respective sporting codes regarding their compliance, or non-compliance with the Constitution, agreed policy programmes, etc. Although respecting the autonomy of the different sporting codes, it is also expected that these codes should operate within a framework, which accommodates the ideals, needs, aspiration of society at large, with particular emphasis on redressing the imbalances of the past. Then only will sport play its rightful role in reconciling out people and forging us into a unified nation, bound by a common patriotism.
