The ICCE, its continental group European Coaching Council, and Hellenic Federation of Sports Coaches and Trainers (POPA) hosted a very successful 2nd European Meeting of Coaches Associations and Coaching Organisations in Greece on 23-34 May 2016, after the 1st European Meeting in Cologne, Germany in April 2014. This meeting was a further opportunity to shape up the representation of sport coaches and sport coaching on a European level.
The meeting was attended by representatives from sports in 20 European countries, with long experience in the field, who shared best practice; showcased and discussed the cooperation between national and continental associations of coaches and coaching organisations, their cooperation with national and international/European governing bodies. There was also good discussion around issues related to the coaching professions and debate on future representation at the European level.
As we are committed in our presence in the meeting on October 13th, 2014, we submit this supplemental memorandum containing detailed POPA’s positions on important issues relating to the coaches.
Also, we ask you to read what the issues mentioned in the memo that we deliver on October 13, will be enshrined in the law editing..
