PNG duo train coaches in Fiji

The National, Thursday July 21st, 2016

THE Papua New Guinea Sports Foundation’s High Performance Sport is currently co-facilitating Oceania Sports Education Programme (OSEP) strength and conditioning course in Fiji.
High Performance Sport strength and conditioning coordinator Thereseanne Daimol and coach Hannah Ilave left the country last Sunday to trial their skills learned as educators during the recently completed OSEP courses.
Daimol is the only individual in country who has completed a human movement degree, and is working in the sporting industry.  She completed her studies in Brisbane last year and took up her position with the High Performance Sport at the start of this year.
Before that, she volunteered with the HPS team in the lead-up, and during the Pacific Games.
Ilave is the longest serving strength and conditioning coach with HPS.
Ilave has worn many hats in her time with HP, proving her versatility in the industry.
Both women attained educator status during the recent  OSEP programme at the Sir John Guise Stadium before being called up to co-facilitate in Fiji.
“It’s exciting but it’s a lot of responsibility and pressure to deliver,” Ilave said.
“We must provide effective coaching or teach how to coach a coach,” Daimol said.
“Daimol and Ilave’s involvement at the event will set the foundation to develop a module that can be used by OSEP for their strength and conditioning programmes in the Pacific,” HP Sport director Aaron Alsop said.
