Sport Associations

Education models for coaches/instructors of SCforH Initiatives

Sport associations use different approaches to put SCforH competences into practise in their training curricula. On one hand some use an integrated model, others offer special health enhancing profile training. For example:

  • The coaching and instructor education system of Finnish Olympic Committee integrates SCforH competences into the entire education process of instructors and trainers.
  • The German Olympic Sport Confederation, conduct separate and special education profiles for HESA instructors.

It’s important to remember that the majority of learning and coach education takes place in more informal settings and in the day to day experiences of coaching.
