Met ingang van 2015 dienen alle coaches – trainers die willen coachen op een G-status toernooi (G1, Europese kampioenschappen enz.) verplicht te beschikken over een ETU Coach Licentie. Om in aanmerking te komen voor zo’n licentie organiseert de ETU Coach Seminars.
Voor meer informatie zie onderstaande tekst van de ETU. De uitschrijving van het coachseminar in Israel is inmiddels al gepubliceerd op de TBN-kalender.
ETU Coaches Seminars
Following the decision that the ETU Council Meeting took on 30 April 2014 in Baku, ETU Coaches Seminars will be held from autumn 2014 and hereafter.
The purpose of these Seminars is to improve the educational skills of Coaches all around Europe by expertise personnel, so that the quality of our sport will be advanced. It is essential to clarify that these license courses are obligatory for those coaches –trainers who want to coach in a G status Tournament (G1, European Champs etc). The course fee that each coach has to pay, is 200€ and the duration of validation of the license will be two years.
With beginning of 2015 trainers coaching without ETU Coach License will have to pay a fine for each tournament which will exceed the course fee.
The scheduled Seminars so far are:
1) 5-6-7 September 2014- Corfu Island / Greece
2) 16-17 September 2014- Jerusalem / Israel
3) November 2014- Bonne or Dusseldorf / Germany
The outline of these Seminars will be send to all Federations and published in ETU’s calendar in due time.
Should you have any questions regarding the Seminars, please do not hesitate to contact ETU via telephone 0030- 211 2144717 or email etuoffice(at)mail.gr.
In een nadere motivatie meldt de ETU het volgende:
Please be kindly informed of the following:
In the last year, WTF has made the WTF Gal cards for athletes and coaches, obligatory in every Championship (if it is a World or a sanctioned event). In this regard, if someone participates in an aforementioned Championship, has to hold the WTF License card.
On the other hand, the proposal of the ETU Coaches Seminars received the unanimous vote from ETU Council Meeting (Baku, 30/4/2014). This is a decision that was adopted for the utmost benefit of our sport, so the quality of the Coaches around Europe will be advanced.
Knowing that the Taekwondo Rules and Regulations are constantly changing and developing, the ETU Coaches Seminars will be a great opportunity to be always alert and enlightened of these developments.
