Promote excellence in sports
To increase participation and achieve excellence in sport through the implementation of sport programmes and development pathways for all
Friendship - having a common goal, shared responsibility and recognition, and a willingness to respect and listen to each other.
Gender Balance - recognising the equal abilities of women and stiving to give them equal opportunities to participate in any capacity.
Sportsmanship and Fair Play - ensure that all involved (players, officials, administrators, spectators and family) understand that international rules are vitally important and abiding by them enables fair comparison, competition and judgement of standards
Self Discipline - whatever your contribution is to a sport, self discipline enables you to apply yourself to your task (aiming at excellence), control your personal behaviour (as a role model) and abide by the rules, whatever the temptation
In line with responsibilities under the Olympic Charter established by the International Olympic Committee, the Kiribati National Olympic Committee (KNOC) is required to promote the ideals and concepts of the Olympic Movement (friendship, solidarity and fair play), the development of sport for all (grass-roots sport development) and elite performance.
In addition, the Kiribati National Olympic Committee has identified key result areas of which it would focus its operations over a two year planned period. These include:
1. Governance - To implement good governance in all aspects of its operations
2. Management - To establish an efficient and effective management system/program within KNOC
3. Sport Activity - Improve the standard of sport in Kiribati
4. Communication - Strengthen information sharing systems
5. Human Resource - Enhance competencies through equal training opportunities
6. Finance - To identify and secure current and additional sources of funding for sustainability of sport in Kiribati
7. Human Resource - Establish and provide a well supported sport infrastructure
KNOC’s affiliate membership is comprised of 15 National Sport Federations.
Through its member National Federations, KNOC has the dual responsibility of developing both elite sporting excellence as well as generating community participation in sports.
In supporting the National Federations, KNOC provides leadership and direction to assist them in securing funding, improving performance and management practices, financial accountability and compliance with KNOC policies and guidelines, such as anti-doping, team selection, management and good governance.
It also facilitates the provision of sports services in the areas of sports science and medicine, high performance, competition and event management, women in sport and human resource management.
