UIPM launch first Coaches Platform
By iSportconnect | August 2, 2016
The Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne (UIPM) is pleased to announce the launch of its first Coaches Platform.
The aim of this dedicated hub is to give coaches of all UIPM sports worldwide a portal for education, interaction and collaboration.
The main features of the platform include:
- – A closed platform for coaches to communicate and collaborate
- – An opportunity for coaches to join “communities” based on their interests (eg training, seminars, camps or anti-doping activities)
- – To allow multiple projects to be created within each of these communities
- – Document and publication storage to make it easier for coaches to share and access useful resources
- – A forum feature to facilitate communication on topics within communities and projects
- – A contacts database for the storage of coaches’ biographical and contact information
- – A calendar to mark important events and provide information about them
- – UIPM has been active in developing the service it offers to coaches and places are still available at the 4th World Coaches Conference in Manchester, GBR (November 11-13).
Coaches are encouraged to write about their experiences under the heading “Making a difference: my approach to Modern Pentathlon coaching.” The best entry will receive free travel to and accommodation at the 2016 conference. For more information visit www.wmpcc.org.
