New Sports Administration Course Strengthens Nigeria's Sports Ecosystem

By Goodness Ndukuba, Awka on June 7, 2024

To bolster sports management capabilities across Nigeria, the Nigeria Olympic Committee (NOC), in partnership with the National Association of Physical and Health Education, Recreation Sport and Dance (NAPHAED) is organising a 3-day seminar for its members. 


A statement by Tony Nezianya, NOC's Public Relations Officer, noted that this marks the 5th collaborative effort between the two bodies to provide crucial training for sports administrators.


The course which commenced on June 5 would end on June 7, 2024. The president of NOC, Engr Habu Gumel,, will be in Lagos today the officially close the event. 

The initiative is supported by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) through its Olympic Solidarity program, which has designed Sports Administration and Advanced Sports Management Courses to assist National Olympic Committees in enhancing the skills of sports administrators worldwide. 

The goal is to promote harmony in sports management globally, requiring active collaboration to ensure its success in various states and organisations, including Nigeria.

The IOC has entrusted the NOC with offering these courses to train grassroots, regional, and national sports administrators. 

This initiative involves NOCs, national federations, sports clubs, educational institutions, and other sports organisations, providing a comprehensive approach to sports development.

The Educational Programme for Sports Administrators is crucial for the growth of sports in Nigeria, as it empowers local communities to discuss good governance, ethical sports values, the achievements of the Olympic Movement, and practical sports administration principles. 

Participants in these courses play a vital role in ensuring that sports are managed effectively and ethically in their communities, contributing to the overall strengthening of the country's sports ecosystem.

This collaborative effort between the NOC and the National Association of Physical and Health Education, Recreation Sport and Dance underscores the commitment of these organisations to elevate sports management practices and empower sports administrators across Nigeria. 

The upcoming 3-day seminar promises to equip attendees with the necessary skills and knowledge to drive positive change in the sports industry, benefiting athletes, coaches, and enthusiasts nationwide.
