World Triathlon launches Coach Education video series as part of Development program
Coaches play a central role in Triathlon development at every level around the world. With the growing remit and increase in expectations, it is critical that a clear and comprehensive approach to developing coaches is a key building block to ensure the future development of Triathlon. As part of the World Triathlon Coach Education program, the Development team has launched an interview series to provide insights about the World Triathlon coaching education pathways, courses, benefits of education and continuous professional development.
World Triathlon Coach Education Program has several key outcomes:
- To grow and develop the sport globally by making high-quality coach education accessible to all National Federations, regardless of their developmental status (developing through to established)
- Providing a quality-assured framework for coach education and development that underpins coach development initiatives
- Providing coaches with a coach development pathway for all roles from high performance to grassroots coaching, which gives them the ability to develop their competence and effectiveness by international standards, regardless of their professional status (voluntary or paid)
- To provide a mechanism by which coaches from all National Federations can progress along the coaching pathway, should they so desire
World Triathlon Development recorded the first interviews, of the series, with Level 1 and Level 2 coaches who attended the Korea Triathlon - World Triathlon Coaching Education Programme in Seoul in November 2023.
Please meet the coaches trio of the Philippines and stay tuned for more interviews as part of the series.
