AIBA launches Coaches Instructors Workshop

18.01.2013

Participants of the AOB/APB/WSB Coaches Instructors Workshop

On Thursday 17 January, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) launched the AOB/APB/WSB Coaches Instructors Workshop in the city of Assisi, Italy.

The purpose of this seminar - ending on Wednesday 23 January - is to train and certify Coaches Instructors for AIBA's three competition programs: AOB (AIBA Open Boxing), APB (AIBA Pro Boxing) and WSB (World Series of Boxing). Once these coaches are certified by passing the eight-day training course and examinations, AIBA will dispatch them to train coaches in different countries, in boxing academies, through the Olympic Solidarity Coaching Programs, etc...

Since AIBA will start pro boxing in just a few months and plan to hold all its competitions without headguard and under a new scoring system, this Workshop was vital to produce more and better qualified coaches from as many countries as possible.

Once this gathering is completed, AIBA plan to send an application form to each of its National Member Federations for them to apply for hosting coaches training courses in each country and/or on each continent.

A total of 36 coaches from around the World are taking part in this Workshop. AIBA invited three Instructors to conduct this seminar, Mr. Adam Kusior from Poland, Chairman of the AIBA Coaches Commission, Mr. Thomas Coulter, a former Olympic Head Coach of Team USA and AIBA Road to London II Head Coach, as well as Mr. Rob McCracken, Great Britain Performance Director.
