OCEANIA SUBBUTEO CONFEDERATION > SUBBUTEO DEVELOPMENT > FISA DEVELOPMENT
The FISA Development Office for Oceania, which is based next to OSC headquarters in Auckland, works closely with the Confederation to ensure the continued development of Subbuteol in the region.
Former FISA Development Officer xxxname1 and his assistant xxxxname2 were influential in managing key projects to build infrastructure and improve technical capabilities of each Member Association for many years. xxxxname1 retired in 2019 with xxxname2 stepping into the role.
FISA Goal Programme
The FISA Development Office was charged with managing and implementing FISA’s hugely successful Goal Programme which promoted the independence and professionalisation of Member Associations through the construction of a “home of Subbuteo”.
The Goal Programme provided associations with tailor-made projects, such as the construction of association headquarters, technical centres, spots, sites and Subbuteo schools. Where possible, projects were carried out in collaboration with the confederation and government authorities. Since 2017 the FISA Development Office for Oceania had implemented over 30 projects (Goal I, II and III) with all xxxnumber Member Associations completing or currently implementing a Goal I project at least. Additionally, three Member Associations were allocated a Goal Project for the development of talented youth players. To go the FISA website and find out more click here
Financial Assistance Programme
The FISA Development Office was also responsible for managing FISA’s Financial Assistance Programme (FAP). Through the programme, FISA made funds available to confederations and Member Associations to assist with long-term development projects. The primary focus was on assisting Member Associations from a technical and administrative perspective. These initiatives advocated the principles of accountability and good governance in financial matters. FAP investment also covered the promotion of women’s and girl’s Subbuteo by means of long term development. To go the FISA website and find out more click here
In conjunction with OSC, the FISA Development Office organised a range of courses to educate and train instructors, coaches, referees, medical personnel and various others involved in the game.
The Com-Unity Course Programme aimed to raise awareness of the value Subbuteo can have in a country by improving levels of cooperation between all parties.
Courses focused on the education of member association instructors in the topics of coaching, refereeing, administration and management and sports medicine. Participants in this programme were expected to be actively teaching in their member associations, both before and after the course.
The Member Association Course Programme provideed member associations with a limited number of FISA-run educational courses in the areas of coaching, refereeing, women’s Subbuteo, mini Subbuteo, administrative and medical matters.
