Workshop to help North women in sports

Salaseini Moceiwai
Monday, July 14, 2014

AS part of efforts to recognise women's potentials in the sports arena, a female dominated workshop was held in Labasa over the weekend to help the participants develop their interest in sports.

Organised by FASANOC and the Women in Sports Commission (WISC), the first-ever Women In Sports Leadership and Administration workshop was aimed at helping women to increase their participation in sports administration, management and leadership.

Facilitator and capacity development consultation Hamidan Bibi said the workshop was timely because too often, sports for women in the North were usually neglected.

"There are a lot of potential sportswomen here in the North but it seems they are deviating from their interests as a result of lack of support and training," she said.

"The workshop aims to rejuvenate and re-direct the participants back to their interests and help them develop it further. These women all come from different sporting backgrounds such as soccer, rugby, volleyball and netball to name a few and they need motivation and encouragement to help them discover their hidden potentials.

"We are working towards promoting women in sports here and we are glad to have the company of some male participants who we believe will assist their female colleagues in their sports interests."

Bibi added the workshop was also aimed at establishing a sub-committee from the North to work with WISC.

"The sub-committee members will assist in outreach programs and other related services and also associate themselves with women's celebrations such as Mother's Day and International Women's Day.

"This is another way of boosting their morale and helping them to participate in women's activities."

The workshop was held at the Takia Hotel conference room on Saturday.
