Sport volunteers step up game with course

| 07/10/2014

(CNS): Local volunteers and administrators from eleven different sports took part in a sports administration course, last month, hosted by the local Olympic committee and funded by Olympic Solidarity (OS) to enhance their skills and knowledge. 29 people took part from a range of local sports clubs including athletics, boxing, cycling, equestrian, gymnastics, judo, rugby, sailing, swimming, taekwondo and volleyball. Officials said the ‘goal’ of the course was to cover the most common needs and requirements of administrators or elected executives of sports organisations.

The course which covered 18 topics related to sport administration and management was available to administrators associated with member federations of the CIOC. It was free to participants and conducted by Dave Farmer, Director of the National Olympic Academy of Barbados. Bernie Bush Treasurer of the CIOC, Jennifer Powell Chief Operating Officer of the CIOC, Dalton Watler President of the Cayman Islands Athletics Association and Richard Adams Director of the Cayman Islands Rugby Club also gave presentations at the 20 hour course spread over four days.
