An important part of our history that has seriously been neglected is non-racial sports. This was a crucial facet of the anti-apartheid struggle and, crucially, was probably the most effective arena of independent and community-based sports in black communities. Moreover, non-racial sports was intrinsically linked to communities and their schools, and depended heavily on voluntarism for its enduring success.

This project aims to recover, record, preserve and popularize this rich and multi-faceted history as an ongoing narrative.

One of the main role players, the South African Council on Sport (SACOS) was formed on 17 March 1973 to co-ordinate the fight against racial discrimination in sport and to promote non-racial sport in a non-racial and democratic SA.It consisted of 24 national non-racial sports organisations and 11 co-ordination Provincial Councils of Sport,of which the Transvaal Council of Sport (TRACOS) was one of them.
