Sid Guzman has taken basketball coaching to the next level on Guam. The Guam men's national basketball team coach was one of 20 coaches who graduated from the second edition of the International Coaching Enrichment Certification Program. 'I think it's great for Guam,' Tony Thompson, secretary-general for the Guam Basketball Confederation, said yesterday. 'He's setting the tone for the rest of us on the island to go out and be successful in coaching. 'The U.S. Olympic Committee, the International Olympic Committee's Olympic Solidarity department and the University of Delaware congratulated Guzman and 19 other international coaches on May 3 at their graduation. The coaches come from 20 different countries on five continents, representing 12 sports, and began their coursework in September 2009. The ICECP is offered to National Olympic Committees worldwide, and consists of lectures, guest speakers, participant presentations, group work and field trips spread over four modules, including an apprenticeship with a U.S. college or national team. As a part of their fourth and final module, the participants presented their final projects to the ICECP Academic Board at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. The objective of the program is to provide national-level coaches with a program orientated toward developing proficiency in the areas of sport sciences, talent identification, athlete development, coaching education, coaching management, grass-roots sport development and ethical aspects of coaching at all levels of competition and across multiple sports, with the aim of improving national coaching infrastructure around the world.
