administrators complete course
administrators from around the country have successfully completed an Advanced
Sports Management Course which was offered by the Namibian National Olympic
Committee (NNOC) in conjunction with Olympic Solidarity. The aim of the course
was to provide a unique opportunity for Olympic Sport Organizations, National
Federations, and organizations responsible for the development of Olympic
sports in Namibia to acquire and develop sport administrative skills. It was
directed by Namibian sport icon Quinton Steele-Botes.
The curriculum consisted of six sessions that were spread out over the duration of one year. Topics covered were organising an Olympic Sport Organisation, managing strategically, managing Human resources, managing Finances as well as managing, marketing and organising a major Sport event.
At the end, the students had to prepare two written case studies on topics of their choice. They also had to prepare a power point case study on each of the modules and present it orally. Over the weekend of the 4th
and 5th April 2014, they had to present their final power point case study on all the modules plus identifying problems, solutions and implementing solutions in their respective federations.
“I am happy to say that all
eleven students passed and will receive their diplomas at the graduation
ceremony on 9 May at Arebbusch lodge”, a happy Botes, who was being assisted in
the course presentation by Namibia’s MEMOS (Masters in Sports Organisation
Management) graduates, Ndeuli Hamutumwa and Heiko Diehl, said. Botes also took
the opportunity to announce that the NNOC will host two Sports leadership
courses later this year. The next Advanced Management Course is scheduled for
the second half of 2015.
