Congratulations to ICECP 12th Edition who finally graduate at the IOC in Lausanne
Finally!!!! They made it! Congratulations to all ICECP Coaches of the 2019 Cohort, who after almost 3 years of Pandemic related delays have finally graduated from the ICECP at Olympic House in Switzerland in October 2022.
The International Coaching Enrichment Certification Program (ICECP), a joint endeavor between the USOC under the guidance of Carolina Bayon and the University of Delaware with Matt Robinson and funded by Olympic Solidarity continues to unite and inspire a global network of high performing coaches.
Perhaps the most unique part of the program is the challenge for coaches to do something tangible with their learning and undertake a work-based development project.
I could not be more proud of my four international coaches who navigated the Pandemic with grit, resilience and an unquestionable commitment to delivering their ICECP work-based projects.
From left to right to, HUGE congratulations to:
Yves Murenzi a national Basketball coach from Rwanda. Yves led on the development of the basketball side of the SGI Sports Academy, which provides a sporting home for 150 youth basketball players.
Vikram Singh Jamwell a national Fencing coach from India. Vikram created a modern coach education curriculum focusing on the art of coaching using Indian folklore and storytelling as metaphors.
Biljana Kukmanovska the head national Fencing Coach for Macedonia. Biljana designed and delivered a periodized program for fencers on the junior development pathway.
Hassan Didi, a Basketball coach from the Maldives. Hassan delivered a grassroots participation initiative beyond the mainland of Male and into two Atolls, engaging all players including a significant number of women, a significant inclusion achievement.
I look forward to watching these coaches continue to drive the change they have started to create. Good luck friends!
