National Team Managers undergone OSEP Workshop in preparation for Pacific Games

PNG National Team Managers have undergone a two-day Oceania Sports Education Program (OSEP) in preparation for the Pacific Games over the weekend at Sir John Guise Stadium-Indoor Complex, Port Moresby.

Participating team managers are from Basketball, Volleyball, Karate, Netball, Rugby 7s, Touch, Swimming, Weightlifting, Table tennis, Triathlon, Boxing and Va’a (canoe racing).

The workshop is a sport education training course for team managers in assisting them to manage a national team when attending regional and international competitions like the XVII Pacific Games in Honiara, Solomon Islands.

“It’s a sports education program and most of the participants here are team managers that will be travelling to the Pacific Games in the Solomon Islands in November this year”, said the National Coordinator for the OSEP program Alurigo Ravusiro.

The workshop covers four (4) modules which are; Foundation of Effective Team Management; Team Preparations (Design Phase); Management of Teams at a Major Competition (Implementation Phase) and Reporting and Closure (Dissolution Phase).

“The course is to train team managers to understand the different phases. These are different stages-development stages and implementations and the final dissolution phase which is reporting”, said the lead facilitator from Sports Federation Kinivanagi Karo.

“The four (4) modules are the four stages,” added Karo.

In an interview with Peter Chalapan Director Sports Operations and Development he said, “As part of the requirement now by PNG Olympic Committee, every team manager must get a qualification in team managing”.

Meanwhile, John Susuve Director Marketing & Major Events at Sports Foundation said that such workshops should be conducted with provincial team managers and officials so they can be accredited and get certificates.

“In the future PNG Games, we should see all the provincial team managers and team officials undergo this training so they are certified to attend”, said John Susuve.

“The training has inspired many new officers and the learning curve for us has been good,” added Susuve.
