Administration

Administrative matters can be found here. Templates and procedures for reimbursement claims can be found under the Finances tab. The minutes of our meetings under the Meeting Minutes tab, press releases and other official documents are available under the Governance tab, and a brief summary of the roles and responsibilities in the management committee is, unsurprisingly, under the Management Committee tab.

The SAOF gratefully receives financial assistance from the National Lotteries Board and the Department for Sports and Recreation of South Africa. Internal matters are funded through affiliation of club members to the SAOF and levies on event entries and equipment (emit) hire. The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) influences much of what we do, to increase the exposure of the public to sport as well as increase the quality of sport in SA.

The advantages of being affiliated to the SAOF include the opportunity to be a nationally ranked athlete and the chance to compete at international level. Financial assistance at this level is available, subject to terms and conditions. In addition, the SAOF aims to uphold the high quality of orienteering in South Africa and allow open, unbiased debate between it’s members.
