Mind Sports South Africa's Management Board increases all MSSA registration and affiliation fees by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) every year. The CPI applicable to the increases for the 2022/2023 season amount to 7.8%.
Thus registration and affiliation fees for the 2022/2023 season shall increase by the CPI (all sectors) of 7.8%, and as per MSSA's Constitution, all such fees are due and payable on the 1st of November of each year.
Please note that if your club has an SLA for an event after the year-end (31 October 2022), such club must pay its affiliation fees and pay its registration fees for all its committee members by no later than 7 November 2022. Should such club fail to do so, such SLA shall be vitiated.
In order for any player to stand for any office, all such person's fees must be paid at the same time that such person is nominated.
Current Board Members are required to have their club membership fees and their own registration fees paid by 7 November 2022 - failing which, such Board Members are immediately suspended until such fees are paid.
Please note that other members that do not remit payment by 1 February 2023 shall have their affiliation terminated and their members shall not be allowed to participate in Mind Sport South Africa's events or team selection.
Members may only participate in a MSSA meeting if such member is fully-paid-up at the time of such meeting.
The fees for the 2022/2023 gaming year (1 November 2022 to 31 October 2023) are:
|Affiliation fees per club per annum||R119.00 per annum|
|Registration fees:||Registered with MSSA ||R127.00 per player|
|Players who are members of school clubs||R11.00 per player|
Please note that Registration Fees may be waived by the Management Board should a player have reached the age of majority and is unemployed, or if the player is a minor and his/her parents are unemployed.
Please note that the voting strength that any member has at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in December is based on the paid-up membership of such member at the date of the AGM.
Please remember that all Registered Players must complete a Registration Form and submit it to their club to which they are affiliated.
