Finding and keeping volunteer leaders is at the top of the club’s worry barometer. With the 1418coach programme, the cantons are promoting the next generation of managers. 14- to 18-year-olds are introduced to first managerial tasks and take joint responsibility in their sports club. 1418coach is an extension of the existing J+S training, which can be attended from the age of 18.

1418coach trainings are also offered in hockey. More information and course dates are available here.
