    Abstract

    A Nominal Group Technique (NGT) was implemented with the Oceania Sport Education Program (OSEP) Educators via email. An email was sent to 31 OSEP Educators in Pacific Island Countries (PICs), of which 6 replied initial responses, and 3 completed the NGT process. OSEP is a program of the Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC), and the study intended to solicit the strengths of OSEP and investigate areas the program could be improved. It was found that OSEP develops the coaching and administration knowledge and skills of participants, is viewed as flexible and relevant, fills a gap, provides a pathway for coaches and administrators, and is being delivered by knowledgeable facilitators. Participants suggested areas of improvement to OSEP in the continual review of the course contents, such as facilitating funding of OSEP activities at National Olympic Committees (NOC), making it a pre-requisite to Oceania Sports Federation courses, and issuing certificates in a timely manner for those completing the course. Delivery of structured sport education at community level is foundational to building Olympic sports in the PICs and of small and various island contexts, it is important to evaluate OSEP programs in the region.
