En ce qui concerne sa place dans la Federation par son action vers les jeunes dans les instances territoriales, le conseil des jeunes Dirigeants se rattache à priori au pôle 4 - territorialité.

La Commission formation sera bien sûr sollicitée pour nous aider à mettre en place un certain nombre de moyens purement techniques mais il nous semble que notre approche sera moins formelle et basée sur la creativité des participants.


L' objectif premier du conseil des jeunes Dirigeants est d' augmenter le nombre et la qualité des dirigeants dans les associations, en menant une politique de recrutement. Puis de formation aupres de jeunes non encore investis dans le fonctionnement d'une association. Pas simple me direz vous?

Ou les trouver?

Comment les former?

Premièrement action pour mener à bien cette mission : s'entourer de gens compétents et construire avec eux un plan d'action.

C'est ce que nous avons fait et j'adresse un grand merci à mes collègues pour leurs competences, leur motivation, leur investissement associatif et comme m'a dit l'un d'eux - ou plutôt l'une d'entre eux

Qu'est ce qu'une association? Son rôle, ses besoins.

Qu'est ce qu'un dirigeant? Son rôle et ses attentes, ses motivations.

Identifier les motivations.

Armand Welgemoed of Hoërskool Klerksdorp is fast establishing himself as the athlete to beat in the Clash Royale esports title.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) held its annual Combined Online Provincial Championships for Schools on 23 April 2022 which was expertly umpired by Anneke Lourens Luies. Anneke has proven herself over the course of the year, having umpired over four events, that she is an able, and one of the best umpires, MSSA has ever had.

The event had schools participating from many of South Africa's provinces, which is showing the continued growth of esports at school level.

The championship is also important for helping athletes qualify for National Team Trials, as well as helping learner athletes prepare themselves for the 2022 NWU MSSA Online School League. 

At the 2022 Combined Online Provincial Championships for Schools, seven esports titles were played, and 19 players were automatically awarded High School Provincial Colours for having won every single round in which they played - a fine achievement indeed!

It should be noted that CCL Knights, from Crawford College Lonehill, have qualified for the prestigious National Team Trials. The team selected at such trials shall fight at the African regional Championships for a berth to represent South Africa at IESF's World Esports Championships in Bali in late November this year.
