SPORT CONFERENCE GEORGE

The Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport, George Municipality, Eden Sport Council and Nelson
Mandela Metropolitan University would like to invite you to participate in the 3rd Provincial Conference on Sport to
be held at the university’s George Campus, at the foot of the majestic Outeniqua mountains in the Southern Cape.
We all agree that sport can, and should, make a positive contribution to the development of youth and to the quality
of life in our communities. It brings people together, fosters friendships, reinforces healthy lifestyles, and builds civic
pride and community participation. It is the responsibility of each one of us to ensure that we continue to build a
strong sport culture in our communities.
With 2016 being an Olympic year, it is an opportune time to review the Western Cape Province’s contribution to
Team South Africa, its provincial status, and how the Olympics have impacted on sport and sport development.
Hence, the conference theme of Olympism, which will seek to link the pathway between the Olympism philosophy,
Olympic values and the principles of Olympism.
The conference also aims to bring together sport managers and sport administrators, coaches, athletes, local
government and regional and provincial sport federations to foster ties in establishing a strong and unified
representation of sport in the Western Cape.
