Three-time teqball World Champion Ádám Blázsovics and his doubles partner for the 2019 doubles World Championships triumph, Csaba Bányik, have successfully completed a FITEQ online coaching course.
The Hungarian duo undertook the FITEQ Coaching Course Level Intro on the governing body’s new online educational platform. The website was launched in September to support the development of athletes, coaches and referees and to help continue building awareness of the world’s fastest growing sport. Blázsovics and Bányik both represent the Phoenix Teqball Academy as players, where they also deliver training sessions to the next generation of teqball stars. The online coaching course has helped them, and many other aspiring coaches around the world, become officially certified.
Blázsovics, who recently secured triple gold in the first-ever National Challenger Series event, said:
“In my opinion, it's really important to deliver well-planned training sessions. If we don't follow our own training plans, it's becomes really hard to go step-by-step systematically. During our training sessions we always choose drills targeted at achieving the main objectives (Goal 1 and Goal 2) and then we try to execute these with as much practice as possible. We also can't emphasise enough that stretching at the end of the training sessions is the key to reach the flexibility required by this sport. Complying with these principles lead us on the way to coming up with something new and exciting, helping us stay at the top level.”
“In such a fast-growing sport like teqball, the players need to improve very quickly to keep pace with the top players. To achieve this, it's undoubtedly a necessity to have highly qualified coaches who are also willing to learn. I really hope that many more players undertake this online course so they gain transferable knowledge for their future coaching activities.”
The FITEQ Coaching Course Level Intro is open to everybody and is free of charge. The course can be undertaken anytime following the instructions on: https://education.fiteq.org/become-a-coach.
