Sports Coach Education Switzerland

 Sports Coach Education Switzerland

The role of a coach is a varied one, and the challenges involved are complex. A coach shapes the development of athletes and represents their primary point of reference in terms of support, advice, motivation, organization, analysis and reflection.

Our initial and further education modules provide coaches with practice-centred experience of what it means to work with athletes in the challenging environment of high-performance sport. Our approach to teaching is an interdisciplinary one which encourages the exchange of experience across different sporting disciplines.

Sports Coach Education Switzerland is a joint endeavour of Swiss Olympic and the Swiss Federal Office of Sport (FOSPO). We have been educating and training coaches in Switzerland for over 40 years.
