A few of national team managers are now officially recognised as team managers under the Oceania Sports Education Programme(OSEP) after successfully completed their course theoretically and practically.

The course which started in theory in October last year concluded yesterday with individual managers presented their practical work which they worked on for three months and was assessed by course facilitator and OSEP Master Educator Tom Tiko who flew in from Fiji.

Speaking to this newspaper yesterday Tiko was impressed with the outcome from respective managers.

“ We had a good engagement with the managers, good level of understanding with participants,” Tiko said.

“ We started this workshop in October for all team managers, up skilling them as they will be taking their teams to Tokyo Olympics.

“ Logistics is very important in order to have a team produced a positive result,” Tiko said.

“Each of the team managers have to work on the event concept plan that’s part of the training and course so i have come back now to assess , i gave them 3 months to complete their event plan so i have come back now for them to present their plans.

“Then we will tick off the check lists of their understanding of the course they did in October. Once we are happy and satisfied with their plan and their presentation of their planner then we will send them off as team managers under OSEP programme,” he added.
