The National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) in association with the Tennis Federation of Cambodia is organising an 11-day tennis coaching workshop with support from the International Tennis Federation and the International Olympic Solidarity movement, local media reported on Thursday.
The NOCC held similar technical courses in wrestling and volleyball last month.
“The main thrust behind this initiative is to empower our coaches so that they can shape the future,” NOCC Secreatary General Vath Chamroeun was quoted by the Phnom Penh Post as saying at the inauguration of the course on Wednesday.
The course has attracted 22 participants including lone female representative Yi Sotheary from the National Institute of Physical Education and Health.
“It is a well-charted training program devised by the ITF and being promoted all round the world,” said the NOCC official, adding that ITF instructors Kawaljeet Singh of India and Christopher Pillai from Sri Lanka, who had been appointed to attend the seminars in Phnom Penh, were vastly experienced tutors in this field.
The first three days of the program will deal with grassroots tennis before shifting focus to Level 1 coaching involving kids and beginners.
