The T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC) in con-
junction with the Tobago House of Assembly (THA)
Division of Education, Youth Affairs and Sport,
recently hosted a sports administration course in
Tobago, which was well attended. The interaction
between the lecturers and the course participants
was excellent, constructive and forward thinking.
It has taken the TTOC longer than anyone would
have liked to get the logistics and arrangements in
place to host what for many was a long overdue
Previously, the TTOC would have conducted
Olympic Day relay activities and Olympic Youth
camps in Tobago so it s not to say that Tobago has
been ignored by the TTOC.
Annette Knott, the current secretary general who
previously served on the TTOC executive committee
as a vice president, is a resident in Tobago.
It also must be said that over the years, every
course, workshop and seminar put on by the TTOC,
sport stakeholders from Tobago have always partic-
It is very evident that the sport fraternity in Tobago
are deeply committed to sport and the sustainable
development of sport in T&T. No one should question
their dedication and sincere desire to pursue whatever
is in the best interest of sport in T&T.
The THA Division of Education, Youth Affairs and
Sport has always been more than willing to collaborate
with the TTOC, once it s in the best interest of sport
and the athletes, that support is forthcoming. There
is a shared vision of striving for excellence.
One of the huge benefits of the recent sports
administration course was the opportunity it presented
for open and honest sharing of information, concerns
Coming out of this sharing between the TTOC
and Tobago sport leaders, coaches and decision makers
was a better understanding and appreciation of the
perspectives and realities that are common as well
as those that are different.
An area that really got my attention was the dis-
cussion on sport sponsorship. There are common
issues and challenges but if one has to be honest
there are dimensions of the local sport sponsorship
landscape that must be considered unique to Toba-
go.What I did assure the course participants and I
want to make it public, is the assurance that the
TTOC will host a sport marketing sponsorship work-
shop in Tobago. It is an initiative that all the par-
ticipants agreed was important and necessary.
The TTOC will hold discussions with the Division
not only to progress the sport marketing and spon-
sorship workshop but to ensure that the sport admin-
istration course held in Tobago recently is not a one
and done TTOC effort.
Another issue that came up was the need for
national sporting organistaions (NSO) to address the
development of the respective sports in Tobago.
Many of the Tobago stakeholders had justifiable
cause for feeling a bit ignored. It is possible in some
instances that this may be a perception but it is clear
that the development of sport in Tobago ought to
be a priority on the agenda of national sport organ-
Whatever the challenges, obstacles and issues may
be, dialogue and goodwill will make sure the best
interest of sport in T&T remains the focus.
The TTOC remains committed to the development
of sport and the Olympic movement in this twin-
There are a lot of discussions that will be necessary
if the objective of ten Olympic gold medals by the
year 2024 is to be made real.
Every community and
Olympic NSO must be part of
the drive. It will take a team
effort, unity and harmony.
One nation, one people, one
