South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee
SASCOC is South Africa’s national multi-coded sporting body responsible for the preparation, presentation and performance of teams to all multi-coded events, namely the Olympic Games, Paralympic Games, Commonwealth Games, World Games, All Africa Games, Olympic Youth Games, Commonwealth Youth Games and Zone VI Games.
At SASCOC we also look after all our various National Federations who are affiliated to us, together with the various provincial sports councils.
We are responsible for the awarding for National Protea Colours to athletes/officials who have met the criteria to represent South Africa in different sporting codes and arenas and we also endorse the applications for Bidding and Hosting of international events, providing these criteria are all met.
Recently, we changed the name of our official SASCOC magazine to TEAM SA Magazine. As of October, 2017 SASCOC now has a new, dedicated website to support the magazine, showcasing the best of South African sport. Formerly under the domain of www.sascoc.co.za, the sports-driven Team SA magazine website is called www.teamsa.co.za and is updated daily, seven days a week. Our Team SA Facebook page and @teamsa17 Twitter feed remain the same. The website features news from SASCOC’s myriad federations and their athletes and para-athlete who, throughout the year, compete in all corners of the globe. Not only will these talented men and women’s sporting exploits be showcased but also, what makes them tick away from the sports arena. The www.sascoc.co.za domain will still feature media releases from the SA umbrella sports body and news of how the official Olympic Committee functions as well as contact details of members and other important organisational details. Links to top TEAM SA news stories will appear here from time to time as well.
