The World Squash Federation has confirmed that Colombia will host the WSF Coaching Conference 2017.
The now annual event will take place from 14-16 September at Club Campestre de Bucaramanga inBucaramanga, one of Colombia’s rapidly expanding cities.
“We have taken a conscious decision to move our Coaching Conference from biennial to annual and rotate around the world regions to give more and more coaches the chance to hear from specialists in so many areas,” explained WSF CEO Andrew Shelley.
“After the success of Malaysia in 2016, we are certain that Colombia will more than match it this year. Coupled with the continuing expansion of the WSF Coach Education Programme, which is providing internationally-recognised qualification standards, it is an exciting time for both coaches and coaching.”
Former world number ones David Palmer (pictured above) and Sarah Fitz-Gerald (below), both from Australia, are confirmed as leaders – whilst sessions will also be led by a number of other highly-experienced tutors and teachers.
