Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee hosts Sports Education Programme
The Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee hosted an Oceania Sports Education Programme week long Management course which involved several national sporting federations.
National Federations including Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Boxing, Cycling, Darts, Hockey, Squash, Swimming, Triathlon, Volleyball, Fiji National University and the NOC staff took part in the Management in Sporting Organisation Course which was facilitated by Kiliati Enterprises.
Participants were taught about the structure of sport, effective meetings, financial management for clubs and national federations, marketing and sponsorships, event and facility management, club and federation governance and planning for development.
The course was a step towards working with National Federations to ensure that through the capacity building of their members, their objectives would be aligned to the NOC’s Strategic Plan for 2017 – 2021. This would in turn help the NOC achieve its vision to “Inspiring the people of Fiji through sports excellence”.
By delivering such courses, the NOC is working towards establishing a National Accreditation Scheme to use as a basis of selection of Team Management and Volunteers who serve Team Fiji to the Olympic Games, Pacific Games and Commonwealth Games.
The different types of courses provided by OSEP will provide a sound and consistent grounding to team management and officials who wish to officiate as a member of the athlete’s entourage, the important group of personnel who surround an athlete as he/she prepares to excel as a representative of Fiji.
