CMASA Membership Brochure


The new Club Recruitment division is set to transform the club industry, offering a full service of staff screening, interviews and background checks. Over the past few years, CMASA placed in excess of 30 top managerial positions at sports and recreation clubs in South Africa.
Through this exclusive new partnership, Club Recruitment now has an offering that can specifically target new blood in the industry and its own transformation objectives. CMASA members will now have a two-fold option of either recruiting in-house and then advertising their vacancies on the CMASA and PGA of SA platforms at no cost, or utilizing the new expanded Club Recruitment service which offers a wider pool of talent.
A club’s vision and standard of excellence are the building blocks that shape a club’s overall strategy and performance. Many clubs are now taking a more business-like approach in formulating their Strategic Plan, and considering their vision and mission in all major decisions.

Together with CMASA, you will gain access to a range of management tools, reviews and surveys that reflect the challenges of the club environment.

It is our intention to continuously work on further education, improved benefits, value related services, and cost savings for our member clubs.

We have attached our membership brochure for you to read through and the application form to complete and return to us once you see the value in joining our association.
