The International Sport Coaching Framework Version 1.2 developed jointly by the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE), the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) and Leeds Beckett University (LBU), is now available in Chinese, French, German, Russian and Spanish. An Arabic translation is forthcoming.
More and more the International Sport Coaching Framework is being used by sports organisations and governing bodies as an effective research-based platform for the development of their coaches. The Framework provides a common language, guiding principles, and suggested standards for coaching as to:
* the primary functions of a coach;
* roles and responsibilities of a coach in athlete development;
* qualifications, knowledge and core competences needed to coach effectively; and
* methods by which coaches are educated, developed and certified.
The purpose of this webinar is to share evidence-based strategies that coaches can use to optimise their ongoing learning and professional development.
