Make a Slam Dunk with the IOC Athlete MOOC!

Join our exclusive IOC Athlete MOOC live web event on Monday 23 February with top NBA coach Mike D’Antoni and learn how to successfully transition from athlete to coach!

Former basketball player Mike D’Antoni was voted NBA Coach of the Year in 2005, developing one of the greatest offensive teams of all-time with the Phoenix Suns. He went on to manage the New York Knicks and LA Lakers, and was assistant coach of the USA teams that won gold at both the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games.

How did Mike make his transition from player to coach? What challenges did he face? What were his career highlights? What did it feel like to win an Olympic medal? What is it really like to coach professional basketball players? 

Join us online Monday 23 February at 18:00 CET to find out! Make a three-pointer by asking Mike your own questions about his career and how he made the transition from athlete to coach.

About the IOC Athlete MOOC

Recognising that many athletes face the challenge of pursuing their education whilst focusing on their sporting career, the IOC has developed, in collaboration with a number of its commissions, including the IOC Athletes' and Entourage Commissions, an online platform delivering free, engaging, educational content to a worldwide elite athlete audience. Known as the IOC Athlete MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), it is an innovative new way for elite athletes to study while training and competing.

The IOC Athlete MOOC features academic lectures, video insights, online live events, discussion forums and various learning resources on nutrition, sports psychology, leadership and injury prevention, to mention but a few topics. Upon registration, anyone can access the platform wherever they are, and all courses are free of charge.
