"An active and winning sporting nation"
In striving to create an active and winning nation, SRSA not only indicates the core focus of current endeavours, but also expresses firm commitment to keep on doing whatever it takes to have a significant and positive impact on the entire South African nation. The scope is clearly one of nationwide impact with the implication that despite the delivery of sport and recreation at three different spheres of Government, all of the actions and initiatives within SRSA's mandate will be optimally integrated and coordinated for maximum impact. It is sincerely believed that SRSA can achieve this ideal of making a difference in our nation.
Let’s Play is a corporate social responsibility initiative developed by SuperSport and partners in response to a National need. Our children are becoming alarmingly inactive. They can’t catch balls or walk on a balance beam. 20% of our children are overweight and physical education has almost been entirely eliminated from government school curricula. Family activities follow the path of "least resistance" as parents and kids opt for "sedentary play" activities. This has to change!
Our aim is to elevate awareness of our social situation and to introduce and encourage play, activity and sport in schools and at home. This is done through advanced media campaigns and close associations with organisations that target children and introduce activities to schools, homes and communities.

In a constitutional democracy such as South Africa, people are elected to hold office in local, provincial or national governments. This three-tier system is laid out in the Constitution, and each level has different roles and responsibilities.
National Government has executive, legislative and judicial branches. Each branch operates based on criteria established by constitutional authority. Each branch works individually and collectively to establish and maintain laws for the country as a whole. The President is elected by Parliament and appoints a Cabinet of Ministers. They act as the executive committee of government and each Minister is the political head of a government department.
The Presidency coordinates the work of government and provides direction and strategic support to ministers and departments. The Presidency monitors and evaluates overall progress towards achieving government goals.
