The ISU Development Commission is pleased to launch a new initiative to support Coaches and their education. The program will offer ISU Members assistance in the form of a Traveling ISU Coach.
The pilot of the program is aimed at ISU Members which are developing Ice Dance, Speed Skating or Short Track disciplines and their coaching systems and which need assistance in
evaluating what is required to start a skating program, teaching basic skating skills, ensuring technical improvement, refining their programs, preparing for competitions, etc.
A Traveling ISU Coach will be a highly educated and experienced Coach offering his/her expertise and time to travel to the applicant ISU Member’s country to provide expert support and assistance. The ISU Development Program will cover the travel expenses and the honorarium for the Traveling ISU Coaches, while the ISU Member will need to provide local transport, transfers and accommodation.
The Traveling ISU Coach will initially spend between 3 and 10 days in the ISU Member’s country, depending on the needs of the individual ISU Member. The structure of follow-up support, including up to two additional visits and intermediate online contact, will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
The deadline for applications to be submitted to the ISU Development Commission is May 31, 2018 for Traveling ISU Coach assistance during the 2018/2019 season. Applications must be made on the attached Appendix A.
