ICCE Global Coach Conference 2017

The 11th ICCE Global Coach Conference 2017 will be hosted by LJMU in partnership with the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE) within the world-renowned sporting city of Liverpool.

The mission of the ICCE is to lead and support the development of sport coaching globally. In light of this mission, the Conference aims to showcase and evaluate the important impact sport coaching plays throughout all levels of sport and society across the globe.

The Conference will bring together frontline coaches, coach educators and developers, academics, sport scientists, performance directors and sport administrators to share research, best practice and expertise in relation to understanding and developing coaching practice. Unique to this conference, additional strands have been developed covering disability (e.g. Paralympic sport, disability sport and military personnel disabled through combat), sports science, technology and football.

The conference theme 'Challenging Sport Coaching Frontiers: The Role of Sports Science and Technology' demonstrates the vision to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of coaching excellence in relation to meeting the needs of the performer.

Over three days, delegates will take part in lectures, practical sessions, discussions and demonstrations by world-leading academics, members of international business and globally respected expert practitioners. The event provides an excellent platform for the dissemination of information and networking opportunities and will consist of a blend of scientific, applied and social programmes, including a gala dinner.

While the Conference provides a forum for exchange across all sports, invitations are extended specifically to:

  • Football coaches driven by the proud heritage of the sport within the host city of Liverpool and the academic and sector-leading impact of LJMU’s Football Exchange
  • Paralympic delegates and injured servicemen and women will be welcomed for the first time on behalf of the ICCE dedicated programme associated with Paralympic performance and the role sport plays in rehabilitation
