13 Graduate In MISO

Former athletes, development officers, administrators and volunteers of FASANOC were among the 13 participants to graduate in a Certificate in Management of Sporting Organisations (MISO).

FASANOC president Reg Sanday said FASANOC strongly believes in sporting governance and hope the 13 participants will produce good results from the programme.

“We in FASANOC see a strong core relation between how associations govern themselves, their good governance practices and sport performance,” Sanday said.

“If you want to see winning performances where athletes stand on the podium and our national flag goes up and our national anthem is played, the first step in that process is improving the governance.

“I ask and plead with you (participants) to carry forth the knowledge that you have gained in this course to improve your athletes and association.

“You know sport is run largely by volunteers. We came up through the administration level and started out like you and hopefully one day you will be sitting here in the committee at FASANOC.

“So thank you for giving up your time and for your loved ones for supporting you in this course. We have high expectations, if 13 of you can produce two gold medal winners at some point in the Pacific Games in the future then this course would have been worthwhile.”

The 13 participants attended a one-week course held in FASANOC in July learning a series of activities such as research, knowledge sharing and individual and group assessments.

Fiji Triathlon participant Tevita Waqavakatoga said he hopes to grow triathlon in Fiji through what he has learned from the course.

“This course has really helped me in look into the triathlon committee on how to organise the sports,” Waqavakatoga said.

“In Fiji, only a few people take part in triathlon, we are trying to bring more people in. We will be implanting the sport into schools to attract more people to the sport. Triathlon is a real physical sport and we want to have more people involved.

“I will be taking what I have learned to spread the knowledge to others and at the same time help grow triathlon in the country.”

The other participants who received Certificates in Management of Sports Organisations include Antonio Raboiliku (Athletics Fiji), Makelesi Batimala (Athletics Fiji), William Qounadovu (Basketball Fiji), Leah Seru (Basketball Fiji), Ada Dansey (Basektball Fiji), Fergus Underwood (Fiji Hockey), Tai Smith (Fiji Hockey), Ernest Coffin (Fiji Hockey), Josese Kalovou (Netball Fiji), Anasa Qionisava (Fiji Volleyball), Timoci Gukisuva (Fiji Volleyball) and John Baleilomaloma (Fiji Volleyball).
