International Coaching Enrichment Certificate Programme (ICECP) Graduation held at ANOC headquarters
The International Coaching Enrichment Certificate Programme (ICECP) Graduation was held today at the ANOC headquarters, as 27 coaches from 25 different countries were presented with their diplomas during a special ceremony.
Ahead of the graduation ceremony, each of the 27 participants made a final presentation.
The ICECP is delivered by the United States Olympic Committee in partnership with Olympic Solidarity and the University of Delaware and aims to equip national level coaches with skills in sport sciences, talent identification, athlete development, coaching education, coaching management, grass roots sport development and ethical aspects of coaching at all levels of competition and across multiple sports.
As well as providing coaches with training in these skills, the programme also delivers participants with the skills needed to educate aspiring coaches in their home countries. The intention therefore is that participants involved in the programme can return home and disseminate what they have learnt and spread the Olympic spirit.
The 2018-2019 programme is the 11th edition of ICECP which has involved 323 participating coaches representing 113 countries from all five continents and 28 sports.
