NEWLY elected South African Hockey Association (Saha) boss Marissa Langeni has identified making the sport accessible to all communities as one of her immediate challenges.
The internationally respected Langeni became the first woman to lead the federation and will start her new job on July 1 in Tshwane.
"Accessibility of the sport to all South Africans is key to ensuring mass participation so yes, visibility in communities that depict SA's demographics is key," Langeni said.
"One of the key challenges for me is to ensure that hockey receives the relevant profiling to attract corporate sponsorship for our teams.
"Transformation and development are also high on my agenda, naturally coming from a university sport background that will certainly be my first point of call.
Saha president Dave Carr said: "The main objective of this post is to manage and develop the association as a going concern in support of the development of Hockey as a major sporting code in South Africa."
Carr said Langeni's chief responsibilities would be stakeholder and market management, strategic planning, manage staff, manage and monitor processes.
Langeni rose to global sports administration when she was still a senior official of the South African Students Sport Union, which has since been renamed University Sports South Africa.
She has also served the Federation of International University Sport.
