ISSF Academy concludes 2017 with B-Course in Kuortane, Finland

The ten-day course was successfully attended by 25 coaches, closing the series of Academy classes for 2017.

The ISSF Academy completed another successful B-Course in Kuortane (FIN), from the 1st to the 9th of November, closing the series of Academy courses for 2017.


The class saw 25 coaches attend the lessons, where they received expert tuition in shooting science and sport science under the tutorship of Mr. Kimmo Yli-Jaskari of Finland, Dr. Kevin Kilty of Ireland, Dr. Zeljko Todorovic of Montenegro and Prof. Claudio Robazza of Italy.


Coaches underwent critical reviews of their coaching skills and of their pre-prepared homework presentations. This was combined with workshop classes hosted by the tutors in the areas of advanced shooting technique and sports science.


Speaking of the course Dr. Kilty said: “This B-Course was very successful, and it reflects well on the quality of coaches that are coming through the ISSF Academy system. The enthusiasm of the students during the course showed that there is much demand for knowledge and education. This is good for the future of our sport and I look forward to seeing them working on the ISSF World Cup circuit.”
