We are proud to announce the new recognition of the ISO.

ISO is a proud member and recognized by the ICCE: International Council for Coaching Excellence!

icce

The International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE) is a not-for-profit, international organisation with the mission of leading and supporting the development of sport coaching globally. The ICCE has established a central Global Coaching Office at Leeds Beckett University in 2011 which is now the hub of its global and European activities.​​

HISTORY

The International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE) was established on 24th September 1997 by delegates representing 15 countries, during the second International Coach Education Summit at the Wingate Institute in Israel.

The guidelines and aims for this new organisation were first established at the 1994 meeting marking the 20th anniversary of Trainerakademie, Germany; and at the inaugural summit in Leeds, organised by the National Coaching Foundation of Great Britain in July 1995. The ICCE has since grown to represent over 30 countries.

THE ICCE MISSION

The ICCE is a not-for-profit, international organization with the mission of leading and developing sport coaching globally. ICCE members seek to enhance the quality of coaching at every level of sport.

Every day around the world, tens of millions of athletes run, jump, throw, catch, swim and participate in other sport activities. And every day around the world, millions of coaches help those athletes chase their dreams. The ICCE believes that international collaboration and exchange can accelerate positive change in the realm of coaching development and help these coaches give athletes around the world a chance to pursue excellence.

The ICCE aims:

  • To promote sport coaching as a profession.
  • To promote international relationships, social and cultural, with those who are engaged in coaching education.
  • To promote sport and sport-values.
  • To promote and utilize research in the field of training and competition.
  • To exchange knowledge in the field of coaching.
  • To disseminate information about curricula, qualifying standards etc. amongst members.
  • To co-ordinate coach education courses and resources across member countries.
  • To promote a moral code in coaching.
  • To improve relationships among Coach – Management – Athlete.
  • To publish a professional publication in the field of coaching education.
  • To encourage and to assist countries, in the field of coach education

The expected outcomes of the ICCE initiative are:

  • A network of national and international organizations responsible for the development of coaches in their respective nations and/or sport.
  • International accords on coaching issues such as ethics, safety, and knowledge/competency.
  • An international coaching culture that supports the values of Olympism: integrity, honesty, fairness, inclusion, tolerance, and committment to excellence.
  • The ICCE is uniquely qualified to address its mission because its members comprise the world’s leaders in coaching development. There exists no other international sports body that focuses on programs for the individuals who introduce, teach, and deliver sport daily-coaches.

INTERNATIONAL SPORT COACHING FRAMEWORK (ISCF)
Created in conjunction with the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF), and Leeds Beckett University (LBU), the ISCF represents a significant step toward understanding and establishing consensus on key coach education, development and employment areas. It is intended to serve as a common reference point for establishing a common language and set of principles about coaching and coach education that can be adapted and applied across all nations and sporting contexts.

INTERNATIONAL COACH DEVELOPER FRAMEWORK (ICDF)
The ICDF is a reference document for countries and federations that have, or are putting in place a coach development system. It reinforces the importance of how, when and where coaches learn. This guide provides additional details on the important role of coach developers and is designed for use, comment and consultation with sport associations, leading partners and other organisations interested in creating a robust international coaching framework.

ISO is happy to announce that it is become a new member of ISCA: International Sport and Culture Association! Here the website.

The International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) is a global platform open to organisations working within the field of sport for all, recreational sports and physical activity. Created in 1995, ISCA is today a global actor closely cooperating with its 231 member organisations, international NGOs, and public and private sector stakeholders. Its 40 million individual members from 83 countries on five continents represent a diverse group of people active within youth, sport and cultural activities.

Created with the aim of providing an alternative to the increasingly performance-based attitude of the international sports federations, ISCA has grown rapidly since its foundation. The association is governed by an executive committee of nine elected members and is steered by continental and technical committees. The secretariat is based in Copenhagen.

ISCA’s philosophy is that sport is not just about competition and exercise, but also involves having a good time and making friends. Moreover, sport regulates social behaviour and creates a feeling of belonging – which in turn leads to a strengthening of democracy.

ISCA was created with the purpose of:

– supporting cross-border understanding through sport and culture

– promoting sport as a bearer of cultural identity

– encouraging the broadest possible participation in sports and cultural activities for affiliated members

International Sport Organization is happy to comunicate that has already completed the registration process to the European Transparency register of the European Community.

Citizens can, and indeed should, expect the EU decision-making process to be as transparent and open as possible. The more open the process is, the easier it is to ensure balanced representation and avoid undue pressure and illegitimate or privileged access to information or to decision-makers. Transparency is also a key part of encouraging European citizens to participate more actively in the democratic life of the EU.

The transparency register has been set up to answer core questions such as what interests are being pursued, by whom and with what budgets. The system is operated jointly by the European Parliament and the European Commission.
