The International Coaching Enrichment Certification Program honored its class of 2018 in a ceremony, held on April 29 at the Association of National Olympic Committees headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The 10th edition of the ICECP – an intensive coaching education program developed by the United States Olympic Committee, the University of Delaware and the International Olympic Committee – included 28 coaches representing five continents, 28 nations and 15 sports.

The ICECP is conducted in partnership with Olympic Solidarity, an IOC program that provides financial assistance to National Olympic Committees around the world. The ICECP has reached nearly 300 participants from 25 sports and 111 countries over the 10-year history of the program.

“Congratulations to the 2018 class of ICECP graduates,” said USOC Acting CEO Susanne Lyons. “Quality coaching is essential to helping athletes maximize their full potential and these coaches represent the future of the Olympic Movement. The USOC is proud to celebrate the 10th anniversary of a program that elevates the standard of coaching around the world.”

The world-class coaching education program is offered to NOCs and consists of lectures, presentations, group work and field trips spread over four modules. The 2018 program began Sept. 16, 2017, at the University of Delaware and traveled to various locations, including the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and apprenticeship sites around the United Sates, before culminating at the Olympic capital in Lausanne.
