The International Golf Coaching Framework is intended to further develop the quality of coaching in the sport around the world. The Framework provides a common language and set of principles about coaching that span all borders. To that end, the Framework serves to establish a consensus on the
• primary functions of a coach;
• roles and responsibilities of a coach in athlete development;
• qualifications, knowledge and core competencies needed for coaching effectively; and
• methods by which coaches are educated, developed and certified.
This book is an adaptation of the International Sport Coaching Framework (Version 1.2) that was created by the International Council for Coaching Excellence, Association of Summer Olympic International Federations and Leeds Beckett University to provide international federations like IGF and sport organisations like PGAWA considerations for designing, benchmarking and refining their coach education and certification programmes. While it retains much of the underlying philosophy of the original coaching framework, the International Golf Coaching Framework has been adapted to provide the national federations, unions and PGAs with the detail required to build their own coaching systems. As a result, golf now has a universal platform from which to develop coaches and, ultimately, enrich the experience of the sport for all.
