As the world celebrated Olympic Day on Tuesday with countless talks, online classes, seminars, trivia and demonstrations, PanAm Sports has chose that day to launch for the first time in history a free Virtual Training course for high-performance coaches in the Americas.
In a release to the media, PanAm Sports noted that the objective is to continue supporting and guiding coaches and technicians and this interesting virtual course will undoubtedly be very helpful for the professionals who are in charge of the development of athletes.
With the name ‘Sports Psychology for High-Performance Coaches’, the course will be led by the Spanish psychologist with vast experience and world recognition, Jose Maria Buceta. He has worked with various Olympic representatives as well as European club football giant, Real Madrid.
This 16-hour total online course will be absolutely free and will be presented in Spanish with simultaneous translation into English. It is made primarily for coaches, technicians and fitness trainers who work in high-performance and are recognized by their National Olympic Committees.
There will be four sessions, with one airing each week throughout the next month. The live classes will be on July 8, 15, 22 and 29. In addition, reading and supporting documents will be used throughout the course and a Certificate of Participation from PanAm Sports will be delivered following its conclusion.
There is limited space in the virtual course, so a total of 6 registrations have been provided for each National Olympic Committee. Registration began on Tuesday and will close on the deadline of July 3.
The PanAm Sports press statement outlined that, “We are very aware of the difficult time we are experiencing with the Coronavirus pandemic and the importance of this type of course aimed at coaches, but that also directly benefits our athletes. It is for this reason that we invite high-performance coaches to take advantage of this opportunity and register for this First Virtual Training organized by the Pan American Sports Organization.”
