The Sierra Leone Boxing Association, which is one of the sporting disciplines that have benefited for this year’s International Olympic Committee (IOC) coaching course, will today start a Level Three boxing coaching course at the National Stadium gym in Freetown.
The course expert is Senegalese born Joseph Diouf who was the same expert for the Level Two coaching course.
Speaking to Awoko sports about the course, NOC’s president Henry Moore said this would be the last course for this year and that they were going to plan for the next four years for eight coaching courses.
He stated that since he took over the presidency of NOC, all the sporting disciplines under NOC had got a fair trial to organize coaching courses.
President Moore mentioned that for the first time under his presidency, the German NOC would be organizing a course for coaches and athletes in May this year.
He went further that the course should have taken place next month but that the German NOC decided to postpone the course to May as they wanted a senior coach to come to Sierra Leone for the course. He mentioned that, “the course will be helpful to the athletics family as the Olympics Games is just around the corner,” adding that if the course became successful it would become an annual event where other sporting disciplines would also benefit.
