PEAK is an EU funded international project under ICSSPE’s leadership aiming to develop coaching policy recommendations for use by sport federations, coaching bodies and governments. The project brings together a unique consortium of expert partners, including the International Council for Coaching Excellence, The German Sport University Cologne, European Elite Athletes Association, Finnish Olympic Committee, Sport Ireland Coaching, Swiss Federal Institute of Sport, and the Foundation of Sport Education and Information, Estonia.
PEAK will offer, for the first time, a comprehensive picture of coaching and coach education across Europe, and beyond. It will tell us about coaching roles, responsibilities, and status, as well as policies, programmes and decision-making processes.
As such, the PEAK project is pleased to announce that two milestone publications are now available for download via the PEAK website:
Mapping Sport Coaching Policy in Europe: Research Report – The Research Report sets the context and background for the project. It provides an overview of the ‘state of the art’ in Coaching, informs about methodological considerations for good practice analysis, and makes recommendations for concept and content development.
Preliminary Recommendations for European Sport Coaching Policy and Validation Methodology – The Methodology Document for Good Practice Analysis and the Framework Development of PEAK is based on the results of the Literature Review. The report provides concrete recommendations for the development of the framework.
The project is planned to run from January 2019 to December 2021.
