The mission of the Department of Sport and Recreation South Africa (SRSA) is to transform the delivery of sport and recreation by ensuring equitable access, development and excellence at all levels of participation and to harness the socio-economic contributions that can create a better life for all South Africans.

The Department's strategic goals are: citizens accessing sport and recreation activities such that there is an annual increase of 5% in sport and recreation participation of citizens; 80% of recognised National Federations (NFs) meeting transformation targets; athletes supported to develop, thereby improving their performances by 10% at international events; an integrated system of enablers to support the delivery of established and sustainable sport and recreation; sport and recreation used as a strategic tool to contribute directly to all five government priorities and two United Nations priorities; and implement internal processes and procedures to ensure that SRSA annually receives an unqualified audit report.
