How will EC ensure that no one coaches at an EC sanctioned event without holding a Coach Status?

In 2022, Athletes must identify their coach (name and EC sportlicence) on entry forms for all levels of EC sanctioned competition.  All competitions are now required to report the coach name and coach EC sportlicence # for each competition result submitted.  In this first year of implementation, education/engagement will be prioritized over
enforcement.  Athletes may indicate that they are self-coached, EC officials may request a person’s coach status information if it assists them in navigating specific situations, and EC will solicit and appreciate feedback from organizers, and officials, with emphasis on “onsite” procedure.  Please see the phased-in timeline for formal competition and program access requirements.
