Marуia Charkouskaya-Tarasevich, Secretary-General, Belarusian Triathlon Federation
“Belarusian Triathlon Federation was happy to host the first-ever WT Level 1 Coaches Course in Minsk. The course was a brilliant opportunity for Belarusian experienced coaches and young coaches to have access to the coaches education program created by the WT and delivered by international facilitators Zeljko Bijuk and Alexander Kochetkov. 14 coaches from Belarusian sport state schools and triathlon clubs had 5 busy days of theoretical studies and practical sessions. For some of the coaches, the coaching methods offered by Zeljko and Sasha were absolutely different from what they used to study and practice locally. It is vital for a coach to learn from the best international practices in order to achieve better performance of his/her athletes. And the participants had a great chance to learn and try new effective methods of coaching and share their own experience with their colleagues. I hope that the coaches will be able to use all the knowledge and skills they got during the week of the course in our local environment.”
“I really enjoy the course. I feel that I’m getting more understanding of how to coach, getting better as a coach. I appreciate that the facilitators respect our opinion and our mistakes, help to develop and to translate our ideas into reality, convey our ideas. Some seemingly obvious things are shown from a different angle. It’s really cool.”
“Classes are interesting, facilitators are conducting classes in a variety of ways. The theoretical part takes place in the form of group discussions, lectures and exercises.
The practical part allows us to gain new experience in coaching, learn about new exercises that I will use with pleasure in my coaching.”
“I get from the course a detailed explanation of all the elements in triathlon from a professional point of view. The course helps to unite the team and cheer up.”
“Very interesting course. Coaches help me to look at my mistakes from the outside point of view. Informative and well structured.”
“I’m enjoying the course in triathlon! That’s what I need for my development and coaching. The facilitators are very professional and skilled. The practical parts are very dynamic and useful.”
