Conference ‘Role of sport coaches in society. Adding value to people’s lives’ (Tallin – EST, 13/07/2017 09:00 – 14/07/2017) under patronage of Education, Youth, Culture and Sports Council (EYCS) alongside the EU presidency of Estonia.

The role of the coach in society is rapidly changing. Today, a coach is not merely viewed as teacher of proper technique but rather as a teacher of values and skills for life who is contributing significantly into society, by fostering personal growth as well as cohesion in society more broadly.
