Technical Courses for Coaches



The objective of this programme is to offer training for coaches in all Olympic Sports.  Coach Education has been one of the main areas of activity and during the period 2009 – 2012, 107 of the 281 courses organised by the ITF have been funded through Olympic Solidarity (OS).  Of the 78 courses held in 2012, 32 of these were funded by Olympic Solidarity.

Olympic Solidarity will only support courses that follow a structure utilising approved International Federation syllabi (e.g.  Level 1, Level 2, etc.).

National Associations wishing to benefit from an OS technical course grant should contact their National Olympic Committee (NOC) directly to apply for funding, as each year the NOCs will receive a budget from Olympic Solidarity for “national” technical courses.  Once funding is approved, the ITF will then arrange the course in consultation with the relevant National Association.

In addition, Olympic Solidarity also supports regional courses.  In these cases, the ITF liaises directly with OS to propose the organisation of these courses on a regional basis and therefore, in the first instance, National Associations should liaise with the relevant ITF Development Officer regarding hosting a regional course.

The types of ITF coaches courses that can be considered for OS Technical Course grants are as follows:

Coaching Beginner & Intermediate Players Course 
Coaching Advanced Players Course
-  Coaching High Performance Players Course

For more information on the above courses please refer to the relevant sections on this website.
