DISCUSSING THE FUTURE OF COACHING EDUCATION
42 representatives from 36 national federations gathered in Vienna in March for the RINCK Convention Seminar. Focusing on the future of coaching education, the two-day interactive seminar aimed to shape the relaunch of the EHF RINCK convention, which is planned for 2024.
Launched in 2000 and named after the first Methods Commission chairman, Claude Rinck, the convention aims for coordinating and mutually recognising standard guidelines and certificates for coaches’ education in Europe, while preserving and safeguarding the regional and national characteristics of coaches’ education.
“The willingness of all participants to open up, share and learn from each other, not hiding anything from rival nations, was a highlight for me,” said Philipp Wagner from the Austrian Handball Federation.
“It was an invaluable opportunity to share solutions and knowledge based on actual experience. I believe that this kind of opportunity to discuss matters concerning the coaching education system will strongly, widely, and positively impact the quality of coaches in the upcoming years,” added Marcin Smolarczyk from the Polish Handball Federation.
