International Coaching Enrichment Certificate Program (ICECP)
ICECP is a high-level coaching education course offered by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC), in partnership with Olympic Solidarity and the University of Delaware.
ICECP aims to provide national level coaches, and those responsible for the development of the national coaching structures in their countries, with a practical program focused on developing proficiency in the areas of coaching leadership, sport sciences, talent identification, athlete development, coaching education, grassroots sports development and ethical aspects of coaching at all levels of competition and across multiple sports. The focus of the program includes training participants to identify and develop athletes as well as to provide the participants with the skills and competencies needed to educate aspiring coaches in their home country.
The program will lay theoretical foundations and offer practical applications for the further growth of sport, coaching and the Olympic ideals within their home country. The intended outcome is for ICECP participants to return to their countries and to serve as coaches within their respective sports as well as become foundation builders for future coaches and athletes while spreading the Olympic spirit.
