In February 2016, Athlete Assessments’ Bo Hanson once again presented at the Australian Sports Commission’s National Officiating Scholarship (NOS) Program. Bo spoke about DISC Profiling, understanding your personal style and those around you (athletes and Coaches), and how to be adaptive to others and the situation.

The mentor-based scholarships offered by the ASC to prominent up-and-coming referees and sporting officials, are an effective way for the scholarship officials to gain knowledge, experience and develop their skills under the supervision of a senior official, past or present, of their sport. One of the key components of the program is for the participants to complete the Athlete Assessments’ Sports ManagerDISC Profile.

Many of the past scholarship holders have progressed to officiate at a national and international level. The program stands alone on the international stage, transcending the world-recognized standards by providing a unique way of training.

Athlete Assessments have been involved with the ASC National Officiating Scholarship Program for the past four years.
