Top quality coaches : high level athletes
High-quality coaching is vital to an athlete's preparation, which is why the role and training of coaches are decisive elements in the life of an athlete, whether at beginner or international level.
The three programmes available are structured in such a way as to offer the NOCs the chance to train their national coaches in different ways and at different levels, in order to meet today's athletes' training requirements. The programmes are not substantially different from those of the previous quadrennial plan.
For this reason, Olympic Solidarity is now looking to encourage the NOCs to create links between the different options and thereby increase the general level of training for coaches around the world. The programmes therefore provide basic training with technical courses for coaches, individual training in the form of scholarships and support at national level with the national sports structure development programme.
