Coaching for a
Greater Purpose

12-14 January 2024
Hosted by: International School of Düsseldorf, Germany
WHAT WE DO IS BIGGER THAN TEACHING THE X'S AND O'S OF OUR PARTICULAR SPORT, WE TEACH THE Y'S OF LIFE THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF ATHLETIC COMPETITION. 

The conference will feature speakers from the world of sports. We are also searching for coaches interested in presenting on a wide variety of topics.

TO BE ANNOUNCED

This conference aims to provide an intriguing and diverse group of speakers from many different backgrounds centred around the impact that coaches make on our athletes and how this transcends beyond competition. New speakers will be announced and we will also provide an open call for coaches or anyone else interested in being a presenter.

About

The Coaching for a Greater Purpose (CGP) Alliance 
The alliance is a group of five schools who have agreed to support the creation of a recurring coaches conference aimed at international school coaches. The following five schools have made a commitment to support the conference and act as hosts in a rotation schedule:

International School of Brussels
International School of Düsseldorf
Copenhagen International School
American School London
Frankfurt International School

By bringing coaches from across Europe together the alliance aims to help raise the level of coaching and to provide coaches with an opportunity to forge relationships “across enemy lines”. 

The concept of “greater purpose” is a way to put to words the desire to create opportunities for coaches to learn about how they can make an impact on their players, teams, communities, and the world beyond. Sports can be a powerful tool for leveraging change and having a positive impact on young people so it seemed very clear from the start that this should be the focus of this conference. 

The CGP Conference will rotate from one school in the alliance to another every eighteen months. By rotating hosts the hope is that the conference has a fresh perspective and a geographical shift that provides some equity in terms of costs and travel requirements. 

 

ISB proudly hosted a successful first conference in August, 2022 and now it moves to Düsseldorf in 2024.
