CIDP Level 2 Certification Opportunity in June

May 04, 2009, 1:59 p.m. (ET)

USA Taekwondo is pleased to announce that it will be offering a Level 2 Seminar of the Coach Identification and Development Program (CIDP) this summer!  The CIDP Level 2 Seminar is scheduled to take place at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on June 5th and 6th

The Level 2 - Developing Taekwondo Athletes and Coaches Seminar is the program where coaches will start to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.  This comprehensive seminar takes an in-depth look into the technical and skill development of Taekwondo athletes.  It provides coaches with information that will develop or strengthen the skills needed to guide their athletes toward performance excellence in competition!  The program continues to build upon the competency-based approach by providing opportunities for coaches to apply the theories into practice at the seminar.

 Coach Chuck Thornton, who attended the first Level 2 seminar that was held earlier in the year stated the following about the inaugural event, "the material provided in this seminar was outstanding.  Thanks to the National Team coaches, USAT staff, USOC specialists, and other contributors for developing the content.  Much of the real value came from spending two days with fellow coaches from around the country in intensive discussions on all aspects to TKD coaching."

To ensure that all coaches who participate in this seminar have a quality experience, it is going to be limited to 20 coaches!  Additional information and an application form is available to be downloaded on the USAT website by clicking HERE.  The deadline for applications is Friday, May 29th and will be provided on a first come, first served basis.  Do not hesitate so that you can be one of the few Taekwondo coaches in the country to have this certification!
