TAFISA Certified Leadership Courses in Sport for All were developed to train and qualify national Sport for All leaders around the globe.  Since their inception in 2007 and 2011 respectively, more than 30 International and National TAFISA CLCs have been successfully held all across the world, from Iran to Trinidad & Tobago, from Kazakhstan to Australia, from China to Tanzania, from Argentina to Latvia and beyond.  With the support of the IOC for the development of the TAFISA CLCs from 2010, TAFISA has seen an encouraging rise in NOC hosts and participants alongside TAFISA member organizations.


Objectives of the CLCs are to:

  • To promote Sport for All and physical activity
  • To provide a platform for networking, exchange of experience, discussion etc.
  • To showcase research and development in the global Sport for All and physical activity sector
  • To introduce Designed To Move as a physical activity framework
  • To develop and train leaders and managers in the Sport for All sector
  • To aid development of TAFISA member organisations
  • To train National Olympic Committees in the field of Sport for All development and implementation
  • To build cooperation between National Olympic Committees and other responsible sports bodies
