The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) held a meeting this weekend with a view to engage national sports associations on their move to sign the memorandum of understanding with the Commercial Arbitration Centre of Disputes, national colours and the message to encourage associations to turn sport into a business by employing strategic plans.

SRC corporate affairs manager, Tirivashe Nheweyembwa said as a commission they have noted that national sports associations do not have explicit dispute resolution procedures hence the need to amend their constitutions to incorporate a clause which talks of the need to refer disputes to the commercial arbitration centre.

The corporate affairs manager added that they have set up a six member committee consisting of the president of Kickboxing and Zimbabwe Cricket chief executive to research on how national colours are awarded in other countries and give feed back in the next quarterly meeting.

The SRC also challenged national sports associations to stop being cry babies and turn sport into a viable business by adopting strategic business plans which will make sport to be self sustained.
