Sports leadership summit on


HIGH Performance Sport PNG launched a leadership summit at the Sir John Guise Stadium Indoor Complex yesterday.
High Performance Director Aaron Alsop said the summit was a brand new concept designed to support athletes and coaches who aspired to making the final team for the Commonwealth Games 2018 in Gold Coast, Australia.
“The programme will see up to 30 athletes and coaches selected via a strict nomination process to attend a fully-funded leadership programme on the Gold Coast,” Alsop said.
“These 30 athletes will be engaged in a seven-day programme that will include some basic training for the coaches as well in the lead-up to the Commonwealth Games in 2018.”
Selected athletes and coaches will attend the programme aimed at achieving key objectives, including developing emerging leaders in elite sport in PNG, and fostering partnerships that are crucial to success in elite sport for PNG.
“The seven-day programme will run from Oct 19-25,” Alsop said. “We are excited to support the development of athletes and coaches of the various sports that are in the country.
“We thank the National Government, through the Sports Minister Justin Tkatchenko, for being supportive. With this help and support, we can capture a successful vision and goals for the athletes of our country.”
