Technical Courses for Coaches

The objective of this programme is to offer training possibilities at different levels for coaches officially recognised by their national federation (NF) and working in their own country.

The programme is open to all National Olympic Committees (NOCs). However, priority will be given to the NOCs with the greatest needs.

Olympic Solidarity wants the NOCs to actively support participation of women in the training courses, with women accounting for a minimum of 20% of those taking part in each course.

The technical courses are held in accordance with the rules established by the IFs, with a view to standardise as much as possible the training that coaches receive around the world. In this way, a common language for each sport and discipline is used by everyone, which guarantees a certain level of quality and performance for all NOCs and their national sports structures (NFs, coaches, athletes, etc.).
