A word from our Chairperson

I trust that you all are healthy and keeping fit – at home.
As you know the National Games have been postponed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The National Office will continue to monitor the Governments guidelines on this matter and will only decide with regard to the Games once the COVID-19 health crisis subsides. Rescheduling is a massive undertaking and they will collaborate closely with our partners and possible sponsor in Pretoria.

The National Office will review and give more information on the way forward after a Management Committee meeting on 16 April 2020, depending on the status of the virus in the country at the time.

They will give updates on an ongoing basis. The federation has the best interest and well-being of the athletes, officials, supporters and our communities, who are all our top priority.

President Cyril Ramaphosa reminded us as follows:
To be courageous, to be patient, and above all, to show compassion.
Let us never despair.
For we are a nation at one, and we will surely prevail.
May God protect our people.
Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika. Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso.
Wishing you good health and please look after yourself
and your family and stay safe and stay at home.
Mudzimu fhatutshedza Afurika. Hosi katekisa Afrika.
