The Player's Representative

Many organisations claim to look after the interests of its athletes, but few take it as far as what Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA)  takes it.


MSSA allows a player to sit on the Management Board in order to look after the interests of the athletes.
However there are a few criteria to be met.
In order to ensure that such Player's Representative knows what he/she is talking about, such Representative has to:
  1. Have Protea Colours, and
  2. Have represented South Africa in an International Competition, and
  3. Shall  not be over the age of 30 at the time of being elected.
  4. All Registered Gamers who have senior Provincial, National, and Protea Colours may send in their vote on the prescribed voting form for their choice of candidate.
  5. The vote may be submitted either per facsimile or by e-mail.
  6. Such vote must reach the General Secretary by the close of business on or before two days prior to the AGM.
Thus the Player's Representative is not elected at the AGM, but is instead elected by Registered Players who are in standing and who are fully-paid-up. 
The election of the Player's Representative shall be conducted in the following manner:
  1. All Registered Gamers who have senior Provincial, National, and Protea Colours may send in their vote on the prescribed voting form for their choice of candidate.
  2. The vote may be submitted either per facsimile or by e-mail.
  3. Such vote must reach the General Secretary by the close of business on or before two days prior to the AGM.
The AGM  is your chance to direct the fortunes of MSSA, use it...


To ensure that it is the athletes that get the person that they want, it is not the member clubs  that nominate the candidates - but the players themselves.
