Tzaneen: The Limpopo Sport and Recreation Stakeholders’ workshop, hosted at Tzaneen Country Lodge, has endorsed the idea of Limpopo sport Confederation (LSC) leadership.

The workshop was the first opportunity for the member sport federations of LSC from all district municipalities in the province, the Department of Sport Arts and Culture and Limpopo Academy of Sport to meet under one roof to share the vision of the new LSC leadership.

The workshop took place on Saturday 13 March 2021, just over a week after LSC celebrating 100 days in office on 2 March since election into office on 22 November 2020, at Boeketlong in Jane Furse.

The workshop was organized a week after the Executive Committee Induction Workshop, and all the leadership learnt from the induction saw it fit to quickly cascade to constituency through the stakeholder workshop without any further delay.

Among the key highlights of the stakeholders workshop was the unveiling of the ‘Vision Statement’ adopted by the executive committee, that reads ‘To Champion a winning province through sport development and elite excellence’.
