2023 ICCE Global Coaches Day 

It's that time of year again when we start to prepare for ICCE Global Coaches Day on 25th September 2023.

There are millions of sport coaches around the world, most of them working on a voluntary basis, and all of them having a big impact on our lives and societies. As part of European Week of Sport 2023, there will be a day celebrating Sport Coaches on 25th September as a day for many to thank their coach.
