NOCC launch sports training course in Kratie

Officials from the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) arrived in Kratie on Sunday ahead of yesterday’s launch of a five-day sports administration training course. The course attended by 26 members from the provincial department of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport is aimed at improving fair play amongst Cambodian competitors.

“Based on the need for strong foundations of sports technique, we should have a training course at least once a year in order to develop fair play,” the Ministry’s provincial department director Pun Supart told the Post.

Three trainers recognised by the International Olympic Committee are conducting lessons. NOCC Secretary General Vath Chamroeun will teach marketing communication and coordination between sports activity and society, National Sports Training Center deputy Keo Sarath will hold sessions on fair play, while Head of the Sports Medicine and Science Center Sdang Chear will educate the attendees on doping in sport as well as sports regulations.

Vath Chamroun also stated that the NOCC, in cooperation with the Ministry’s National Sport Training Centre, is looking to set up affiliated offices across the Kingdom to develop sporting activity.
