Alexander Blair: «The new education project in physical culture and sport has no analogues in Russia»
Dear friends and colleagues!
The Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth and Tourism in cooperation with the Russian Olympic Committee is launching a new project. In fact it is a unique education project aimed at developing the coaching staff’s professional skills.
By all major indicators such as territory coverage, the number of coaches involved in the education project, coaches of different age and qualification, representing almost all Olympic sports and education areas tailored to different skill levels of participants.
What can Russian sport get from the realization of this project? The new strong impulse to develop, coaches armed with up-to-date knowledge, our athletes’ potential success at the international competitions.
What will the Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth and Tourism get from this project? An opportunity to improve its education programs relying on the actual needs and to check their own scientific research directions.
I want to express my gratitude to the Russian Olympic Committee, which acted as the initiator of this global all-Russian education project on physical culture and sport!
