The objectives of the CISM Development Centres are:
to stimulate and support sports training programs;
to develop a structure designed to provide an overall and efficient leadership in sports administration;
to train and develop elite sportsmen with an ultimate aim in increasing their participation in sports competitions in CISM; to educate coaches and technical officials in a bid to enhance performance and improve the standards of coaching.
Currently CISM has two Development Centres, one in Africa (Kenya) and one in South America (Brazil).
Confident in the success of these centres, the CISM Asian Member Nations have started a study of feasibility to launch a similar project at their own continent.
