COMPETITIVE GYMNASTICS GOVERNING BODIES
The South African Gymnastics Federation is the overall governing body of the sports of gymnastics in South Africa. Established in 1931, the body is affiliated to the International Federation of Gymnastics, the African Gymnastics Union and the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC), and recognized by Sport and Recreation South Africa (SRSA).
The SAGF governs nine gymnastics disciplines as follows:
Men’s Artistic Gymnastics | Women’s Artistic Gymnastics | Rhythmic Gymnastics | Aerobic Gymnastics | Acrobatic Gymnastics | Trampoline & Tumbling | Rope Skipping | Gym for All (GFA) | Schools Gymnastics
The SAGF is involved from the grassroots development level to the elite gymnastics level in all the 9 Provinces of South Africa, in partnership with its provincial affiliates.
The Fédération Internationale de Gymnastique (FIG; English: International Gymnastics Federation) is the governing body of competitive gymnastics. Its headquarters is in Lausanne, Switzerland. It was founded on July 23, 1881, in Liège, Belgium, making it the world’s oldest existing international sports organisation. Originally called the European Federation of Gymnastics, it had three member countries—Belgium, France and the Netherlands—until 1921, when non-European countries were admitted and it received its current name.
The federation sets the rules, known as the Code of Points, that regulate how gymnasts’ performances are evaluated. Seven gymnastics disciplines are governed by the FIG: artistic gymnastics, further classified as men’s artistic gymnastics (MAG) and women’s artistic gymnastics (WAG); rhythmic gymnastics (RG); aerobic gymnastics (AER); acrobatic gymnastics (ACRO); trampolining (TRA) and tumbling (TUM).
Additionally, the federation is responsible for determining gymnasts’ age eligibility to participate in the Olympics.
The South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (SASCOC) (Afrikaans: Suid-Afrikaanse Sportkonfederasie en Olimpiese Komitee) is the National Olympic Committee (NOC) and National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for South Africa, and the responsible body for South Africa at the Commonwealth Games. It is also responsible for high-performance sport in the country and coordinates the relationship with various international sports federations.
At the Annual General Meeting held on 9 December 2013, SASCOC decided to de-register as a non-profit company. This has created a great deal of confusion as its status as the official Sports Confederation (in terms of the Sport and Recreation Act, number 110 of 1998, as amended) and its affiliation to the IOC, ANOCA and the Commonwealth are not transferable.
There too is an Association that is attempting to trade as SASCOC. However this association is not a registered non-profit organisation and in terms of its constitution (as can be seen on its website) it cannot be adopted as such either. Thus the association is a taxable partnership in which all the ‘Board Members’ are partners and share in the profit and losses of such body.
