ICF renews partnership with HUSS

The International Canoe Federation (ICF) is excited to renew its long-standing partnership with the Hungarian University of Sports Science (HUSS).

The collaboration between the International Canoe Federation (ICF) and the Hungarian University of Sports Science (HUSS) has been running for more than a decade. It plays an essential role in the development of Canoe Sprint coaches from around the world. 

HUSS’s more than 10-week period online course (Sprint Canoeing Online Level 3 Coaching Course) is carried out in cooperation with ICF with the aim of training and educating coaches from all around the world.

The education programme has been created to meet the needs of coaches working with competitive athletes at national and international levels. Core subjects include Training Theory and Methodology, Sport Psychology, Sport Nutrition, Sport Pedagogy and Sport Injuries.

This year’s course will run from mid-September to the first week of December. For this occasion, HUSS representatives including Dr habil. Judit Kadar, Director of the International Relations Office, Andras Szabo, Head of Operations for International Coaching Programmes, and Gabriella Sztojalovszky, International Partnerships Executive visited the ICF headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland on 27 March. 

At the meeting, ICF President Thomas Konietzko confirmed that ICF is delighted to renew the long-standing partnership with HUSS. He also added that ICF is committed to ensuring that coaches receive the best education possible and this collaboration with HUSS is key to the delivery of that pledge.

‘We are working to redefine our partnership’, said András Szabó. ‘We had a great meeting in Lausanne as we got to hear their remarks and received feedback from ICF. As we have a wide range of international programmes, we want to introduce our sports diplomacy and sports coaching programmes to the ICF representatives in case they want to build on the coaching course and join our further post-graduate studies. We also plan to hold webinars on topics including sustainability and female leadership in sport.’
