International Sport Coaching Framework to launch at Global Coaches House

On Wednesday, 1st August at 2.30 pm, the International Sport Coaching Framework (ISCF) will be launched at a special event at the Global Coaches House, London.

The purpose of the ISCF is to provide an internationally recognised reference point for the education, development and recognition of coaches.

It will do so by defining the key building blocks of any national or international coaching system by defining coaching, coaching occupations and domains, coaching roles, coaching status categories, and the systemic elements around them that support full development and sustainability.

The waiting’s almost over, now for the fireworks

After years of planning, the greatest sporting event in the world is about to explode into life as the London 2012 Olympic Games get under way in just a few hours.

Much has been made recently by a certain US politician and presidential hopeful about the apparent lack of interest being shown by the general public in the UK.

What he and other critics fail to recognise is the fact that for the past seven years, people in the UK have been fed an almost daily diet of Olympic stories, not all of them positive and that this kind of media overload has inevitably led to a kind of national fatigue over the event.

However, that is all about to change and tonight’s opening ceremony, while not perhaps matching the jaw dropping scale of Bejing’s extravagant but ultimately rather soulless opening, promises to bring some fun and music back to the proceedings – a kind of Beatles meet Beefeaters.

There has been a growing and palpable sense of excitement and expectation here in the UK over the past few weeks and that is about to erupt as the nation embraces the Games and gets behind its athletes.

Mitt Romney, prepare to be dazzled.

Beach Volleyball top spectator sport for civil servants

Beach volleyball will be the most popular sport for Government officials at the London 2012 Olympics according to the latest ticket sales.

Figures show that ministers have bought almost twice the number of tickets for Beach Volleyball, than they have for the athletics.

Officials have insisted that there is an entirely innocent explanation, claiming the decision was all about the timing of the events rather than an interest in the outfits worn by the players.
