The potential for a commercially viable Trinidad and Tobago sport industry is huge. However a critical success factor is strong sport governance systems and procedures.
Many of the existing Constitutions under which national sport organisations and national governing bodies operate need to be modernized and amended to include basic universal principles of good governance.
The Ministry of Sport, Sport Company of Trinidad and Tobago and the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) must cooperate and work together to foster, facilitate and enable the necessary changes and reform.
We can't sweep the issue of poor sports governance under the carpet . Its not about making cosmetic changes. There is need for reform.
Some sports are operating in an undemocratic manner and aren't conducting their affairs in a transparent and accountable manner.
The ultimate victims are the athletes,children, youth and young people and the best interest and sustainable development of sport.
Constitutional reform is a priority in Trinidad and Tobago Sport.
