First IHF Global Coaching Clinic in Bahrain and Qatar

IHF coaching clinic Starting in Bahrain and Qatar, the International Handball Federation will organize special courses for top coaches from all over the world – so called Global Coaching Clinics (GCC) – in all continents. All national federations can nominate their applicants for those Clinics. The first one is addressed to all coaches from Asia and all Arabic speaking countries.This GCC is divided into two parts, starting 19 – 26 March in Bahrain, followed by the second and final part on the fringes of the IHF Super Globe in Qatar (the exact date will be announced soon).An IHF working group has worked on the concept of those GCCs which promote coaches to a top level and finish with the coaching licence level A (the top IHF licence). Besides there are two more levels (B and C) to be reached. The GCCs had been created especially for countries that don’t have their own licensing system for coaches – and IHF is trying to recruit international top coaches as lecturers of the GCCs. Only national federations can nominate the participants (a maximum of three people per federation) – and the candidates must be active coaches on advanced level and English speaking. Further objectives of the GCC are to teach the coaches to be multipliers, to develop handball in their regions and to be a potential continental lecturer.The GCC will be led by CCM members in small teaching groups, and every participant will have a personal mentor during and after the course. Topics of the GCCs are all kinds of individual and group tactical training methods (part I) and strategic and long-term coaching including sports medicine.For further information about the Global Coaching Clinics, please contact the IHF Head Office in Basle.Source: ihf.info ← Previous Story Team Bosnia & Herzegovina: The return of Tahirovic, “enough” with Doborac, Toromanovic and Terzic Next Story → Tatran Presov won Slovak Cup read more
