The International Sport Coaching Framework – a webinar

The International Sport Coaching Framework marks a watershed in the history of coaching globally by providing an internationally recognised reference point for the development of coaches.

Update: Friday, 22 August 2014. It was with great sadness we learned this week of the death of  Pat Duffy, Vice-President for Strategy and Development for the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE) and the chief architect of the International Sport Coaching Framework. We would like to offer our condolences to all who knew him and benefited from his many talents.

Pat Duffy

The International Sport Coaching Framework includes definitions, guidelines, and recommendations on the primary functions of a coach; roles and responsibilities of a coach in athlete development; qualifications, knowledge and core competencies needed for coaching effectively; and methods by which coaches are educated, developed and certified.

In doing so it aims to be responsive to the needs of different sports, countries, organisations and institutions and provides benchmarks for the recognition and certification of coaches.

Organisations around the world will be able to use this document as a useful guide, one that can be applied fully or in part to suit the needs and context of each user.

It can also be used to evaluate existing systems and report on the findings towards developing stronger programmes in the future.

The webinar will:

  1. Outline the main elements of ISCF
  2. Explain the process, rationale and programme theory behind the Framework
  3. Provide initial guidance on how ISCF might act as a reference point for NFs, IFs, National agencies, as well as coaches and coach educators
  4. Provide the opportunity for questions and discussion relating to ISCF

Attendees will learn:

  • ISCF and terminology to describe coaching as a blended profession
  • Steps and measures to disseminate and apply the Framework
  • Parallel ICCE developments to support the development of coaching as a blended profession across the globe

Space on this important webinar is limited and we recommend that you register early to reserve your place.

Presented by Professor Pat Duffy
Wednesday, March 26th, 3.00pm GMT
