South African Sport Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) and Sport Recreation South Africa (SRSA) are committed to the implementation of the South African Coaching Framework up to 2018 and beyond. The Framework was formally launched at the SASCOC Coaching Conference in November 2011, where the following declaration was adopted:
This conference formally endorses the South African Coaching Framework as the official reference point and action plan for the development of the South African coaching system up to 2018.
The conference formally supports the commencement of the implementation of the Framework with immediate effect, with a status report to be provided to the 2012 SASCOC Coaching conference.
The South African Coaching Framework seeks to establish an effective, inclusive, cohesive and ethical coaching system that promotes transformation and excellence at all levels of sport. The Framework will be coordinated by SASCOC and delivered through National Federations (NFs) who will work closely with the education sector, provinces, municipalities and districts. The primary objective will be to increase the number of skilled coaches in South Africa to guide the improvement of children, youth, talented athletes and high performance athletes at all stages of their development.
In order to achieve this, an extensive programme of coach education and development is now planned. In the first instance, this will focus on educators and coaches working in the school environment and in support of the joint Department of Basic Education (DBE) and SRSA programme to enhance the experience of school-going children and youth. In order to progress this initiative, applications are now invited from suitably experienced and/or qualified individuals for the 3 categories of developer (Coach, Technical official and Administrator).
- Master Coach Developer at national level
- Senior Coach Developer to work at provincial levels
