To achieve the smooth running of all the sporting codes at the University, all sporting codes have to elect their executive committees. Such executive committee members then form the Sport Union, which is led by the Sports officer, who is a member of the SRC. Bongile Ganyile said these executive members, who hold the office for 12 months, need to be given induction. “Giving our Sport Union induction ensures that they are well-versed with all the running of sport at the University. The Sport Union represent all the sport codes that we have. Members of the Sport Union are responsible for the day to day running of the sports code and are a link between the sports office and the students. It is therefore important that they understand all about how we run sport at the University so we can achieve the desired results. We see this step as one of the cornerstones of the success of our sport. It forms part of sport management, which is a very essential part of any sport,” said Ganyile. The workshop will be run on 7 March 2020, and will be attended by 50 delegates.
