The global objectives of the ISA Coaching & Instructing Program are:

To further develop, through educational programs, a body of knowledge on which Coaches and Instructors may draw.

Promote the use of safe and correct techniques

Provide a structure to improve communication skills

CIP training programs include the following components:

Coaching principles – fundamentals of coaching and athletic performance
