High Performance Coach (HPC)

Chaired by John Bales (Canada)

The HPC group has come together with very clear and distinctive goals. This group will:

  • Share good practice in High Performance Coach and Performance Director preparation
  • Produce a profile of successful high performance coaches: what differentiates the top coaches from the rest?
  • Set up a programme of international exchanges
  • Examine the relationship between high performance coaches and performance directors to develop guidelines to maximize it

All of the above objectives will unequivocally link to the development of the International Sport Coaching Framework, both providing new insights to support its development, and also ensuring the work of the group is fully aligned with the objectives of the framework.
