The Jordan Olympic Committee’s effort in raising the level of coaching in the Kingdom is bearing fruit after a number of coaches were honored on Sunday night.
Deputising for HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, the President of the JOC, Lana Al Jaghbeer, Secretary General, presented dozens of certificates to the coaches that have graduated through the JOC’s National Coaching Certificate Program (NCCP) and Olympic Values Educational Program (OVEP).
The NCCP program was launched in 2008 to help federations to develop their coaching abilities, and this latest ceremony saw 37 coaches recognised from 17 sports.
A further 99 participants from the OVEP program were honored along with 20 volunteers who helped develop and then implement the activities which targeted various sectors of society who were previously not able to partake in sporting activity.
The ceremony was attended by the Programs’ partners: Ministry of Education, Great Amman Municipality, Norwegian Refugee Council and AMIDEAST.
