ESF Level 1 Coaching Course, Vienna, 19-22 April 2018
The Club Danube, well known from many Austrian Junior Opens, was the venue of this course . For Vienna-based tutor Michael Khan it was an unusually short travel to a coaching course – “normally I take a plane, this time the metro!”
Whereas most of the ten participants, apart from the two Austrians, had a far longer travel as they came from Belgium, Croatia, Lithuania, Malta, Moldova, Poland and Russia. It was a young and highly motivated group that worked well together through three intense days of lectures and practical sessions before facing the final assessments on Sunday morning. Only one of them needs to do a bit of extra work, while all others are now newly certified WSF Level 1 Coaches, ready to grow Squash in their respective clubs and countries.
