ISSF Academy C23 course completed in Bar, Montenegro

The course took place from October 14th to October 21st. A total of 31 students participated.

The C23 course for C-license coaches was successfully conducted at the ISSF Academy accredited training centre in Bar (MNE).


A total of 31 students from around the world attended the course, with participants traveling from Japan, Oman, New Zealand and South Africa among other nations. The course was led by ISSF Academy tutors Dr. Zeljko Todorovic of Montenegro, Mr. Kimmo Yli-Jaskari of Finland, Dr. Kevin Kilty of Ireland and Prof. Claudio Robazza of Italy.


From the 14th to the 21st of October, the students completed a series of technical workshops covering shooting skills and sport science activities over the course. Student-interaction in these workshops is very high and the workshops are designed to push students to develop their coaching, planning and communication skills.


Closing the course ISSF Academy head tutor Dr. Kevin Kilty commented: “It’s a pleasure and an honour to work with so many talented coaches. The levels of enthusiasm and the commitment to work shown during the course was outstanding. I believe this is a good sign for the future of coaching and the future development of our sport.”


Once again, a significant number of the participants had previously attended ISSF Academy D-courses and highlighted their positive experience of the D-course as their reason for moving forward to the international C-licence.


Course participant Hiro Nagashima of Japan said: “The course was everything I expected it to be and more. The workshops are tough, but you learn a lot from the tutors. I feel we have all learnt a lot and will be able to bring the knowledge and skills back to our federations.”
