Participants in the Oceania Sports Education Program (OSEP) spoke today of the knowledge they gained from the workshop.
While some have been in the program since its inception, first time participants are eager to put to their skills from the three-day program to use.
Officials from various codes that participated included swimming, netball, handball, rugby Union and boxing.
During just their second year in the program, swimming had the most participants; 11 staff attended the sports management, administration and community coaching courses.
PNG Netball had previously attended the OSEP Workshop but for this year they have included their coaches and officials from smaller competitions to get first hand training in community coaching.
And, that proved fruitful, as these officials will now go back to their associations with new knowledge to impart.
Meanwhile, PNG Softball was newly introduced to the training with only one participant, Suluet Tarasomo, who found the concept helpful and said it will be beneficial for the code if more attended in the future.
Participants were encouraged to utilise what they have learnt as a stepping stone to improve sports administration and coaching in the country.
