Partnership signed with OSEP
The Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC), through the Oceania Sport Education Program (OSEP), signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Oceania Swimming Association (OSA) in Port Vila, Vanuatu during the Pacific Mini Games.
The MOU will see the provision of OSEP trainer courses to support the sport specific swim coach programs under the Pacific Sport Partnership and the soon to be released FINA Coaching courses.
In addition, OSEP will provide the administration and generic coaching stream courses for all the OSA affiliates in Oceania. The administration stream consists of Sport in Communities Administrator, Management in Sporting Organisations and Advanced Sport Management Courses. The generic coaching courses are Community Strength and Conditioning coach and Development Coach courses.
The collaboration should see the development of a coaching and administration accreditation pathway for those involved in swimming.
OSA is also working with the FASANOC Education Commission and the Fiji Higher Education Commission to recognise the swimming courses under the Fiji National Qualifications Framework.
