Last year we enjoyed a great time on and off the field; our strategic objectives and decision-making remain aligned with the vision of Stellenbosch University and the Maties Sport vision "To be the leading university, contributing towards a holistic and diverse experience through sport". This year we will focus on the following:
· Develop and maintain a winning team: we remain committed to building our holistic and high-performance programme through player recruitment, development, and retention.
· Sport club management: monitoring and tracking all the systems aligned to our key focus areas and looking into programme renewal for our cluster programmes.
· Expanding the Centre for Sport Leadership (CSL): we are working on getting 15 research fellows for our centre, expanding our sport research footprint. We will investigate partnering with two African universities this year.
