There was a good turnout at the Western Cape Provincial Sport Confederation’s General Council Meeting in Cape Town on Saturday 15 February 2020 and several issues were dealt with.
President JP Naude emphasised to the members of the general council that transformation monitoring and implementation is not negotiable, and to ensure the there is support and progress will be embarking on a transformation roadshow this year.
The transformation charter which spells out and monitors transformation in sport in South Africa requires that sports federations across the nation use the transformation scorecard. The scorecard includes establishing targets and measuring achievements.
Currently, federations are very poor at completing the scorecard. To remedy this problem Naude will be embarking on a roadshow to the six districts.
He added the solution was not only about how the digital process works, but it was also about making transformation work. His visit to the districts will look at the broader picture of how to increase athlete participation and grow club structures.
In addition to the scorecard, Naude will look at priority matters at grassroots. Naude emphasised that transformation requires a constant effort, we need to establish measurable goals coupled with resources.
