RESULT OF THE RESEARCH
- Identification of best Pentathlon Athletes profiles at the level of partner countries and the wider European context. Methodology of research was secondary analysis (collection and processing of existing policies, papers, academic literature, statistical evidence).
- Research and analysis of extant skills of Sport Athletes in individual Pentathlon disciplines compounding the identification of the needs of the audience with regards to approaching Coaching and Training in Pentathlon in a perspective of Dual Career.
The Training Format aims at developing the knowledge, skills and competences of Pentathlon Coaches and Trainers in a way functional to meeting the needs and specific profiles of Athletes in individual Pentathlon disciplines. The TF is conceived for empowering Dual Career prospects in Athletes as well as, through its indirect impact on a wide category of targets (from young people to adults), as an instrument to achieve a positive change in rates of physical activity and participation in Sport, thereby enhancing physical and mental fitness of individuals.
GUIDELINES FOR LOCAL ACTIVITIES
The production of Guidelines for the upcoming testing of the TF (local training courses with Athletes). The Guidelines will serve the purposes of providing a general model for the testing the “training format” phase in a way to avoid any variance not determined by objective (i.e. external) local/country-specific conditions.
A Manual detailing methods for the validation of Pentathlon Coaches and Trainers profiles tailored to Athletes in the single Pentathlon disciplines. The Manual has been produced as an outcome of the learning dimension of the project (local trainings and local pilot programmes) and integrates methodological and practical instructions for the validation of Coaching/Training profiles developed in adherence with the methodology of the project.
