IPC Academy Supports Administrators in Preparation for Delhi 2010

This week, the IPC Academy has successfully completed the delivery of a three-day intensive Team Management Training programme in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The programme, held in Malaysia’s capital from 19 – 21 April, was designed to drive the development of Paralympic and Commonwealth Para-Sport athletes, and increase the number of countries competing in the Commonwealth Games. 22 Apr 2010 By IPC

The IPC Academy developed the programme in partnership with the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) after recognizing a need to better prepare administrators involved in the selection, preparation and management of Para-Sport athletes for the Commonwealth Games.

Senior delegates from Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, India, Malaysia, the Maldives, Pakistan, Singapore, and Sri Lanka completed the programme this week, taking part in seminars and group work projects focusing on key areas such as Athlete Development, Stakeholder Integration, and Team Logistics for Para-sports.

The delegates had the opportunity to discuss and debate relevant case studies, share knowledge and establish best practise ideas with fellow administrators, industry experts from the CGF and the IPC, and leading visiting fellows from the World Academy of Sport. The Asian Paralympic Committee also generously hosted attending delegates to a Cultural Celebration as part of the official programme on Wednesday evening.

The programme was targeted at administrators from Asian National Paralympic Committees, and Commonwealth Games Associations. It comes at a critical time for those administrators who are supporting their Paralympic and Para-Sport athletes in the run up to the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games in the longer term.
