During the national Sports Indaba in November 2011 the National Sport and Recreation Plan was adopted. One outcome that has now been implemented was the development of a code of conduct to which all National Federations are signatories. This SAOF has signed this code of conduct.
The purpose of this code of conduct is to articulate the acceptable standard of behavior expected of a member of a national sporting body. It represents a formal statement of the values and ethical standards that guide individuals in sport. It further outlines a set of principles and norms to which sporting people can be held accountable by National Federation when representing South Africa at any sporting event.
This therefore now forms part of the SAOF’s policies which can be viewed on the Policies section.
