The five-day course was conducted by Tharcisse Harerimana, an expert in the Rwanda National Olympic and Sports Committee (RNOSC) and Florent Habyarimana, who is in charge of talent detection at the Ministry of Sports and Culture.
The course had three categories; the first focused on Athletics Federation and the Rwanda School Sports Federation, who were trained in April, the second category included officials of different local sports federations, in July, while the third category that was trained last week, had women leaders in Sports.
RNOSC Secretary General, Dominique Bizimana said, “This training has come to resolve problems in Sports Administration and after this training we hope to get a good result because we now have the right people in the right positions.”
Isabelle Nizeyimana, one of the trainees confessed that, “Before attending this training, I didn’t understand Sports Management, but now I know and it’s my responsibility to contribute in that field.”
“In the past, women never used to get involved in the sports activities but now we are engaged in the sports and we are capable of taking up leadership positions,” she noted.
Meanwhile, Eugene Nzabanterura, an official from RNOSC pointed out that the training was a good opportunity for national sports federations to learn how to overcome the multifaceted challenges they face on day to day basis.
