The Chief Guest expressed his sincere gratitude to the OSMA      Members States’ government for realizing the importance of the training and thereby accepting to send participants to the course.  He urged the participants to seize the opportunity by endeavoring to assimilate as much skills and knowledge as possible for maximum benefit.  He also expressed deep appreciation to CISM and Kenya Armed Forces for providing financial, technical and administrative support to the CAD Project. The High Table during the Opening Ceremony gave evidence of the vastness of partnership brought together for the success of the event.

KENYA SAYS KARIBU! (WELCOME!) TO 7TH CISM COACHES COURSE

The Kenyan capital on Nairobi – known to Kenyans and its visitors as ‘The green city in the sun’, is ready to host the 7th CISM Africa Development Centre (CAD) Coaching Course, this time in Athletics. The course will run on 6th – 22nd June 2010 at Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, where Kenyan Champions are born and natured.

The establishment of first CISM Regional Development Centre in the world is in line with CISM development policy of providing mutual technical assistance towards giving military Sportsmen opportunity to improve in sport skills through specialized training in coaching, officiating, sports medicine and management while strengthening the structure and role of CISM in the Africa continent. The establishment of the CAD is therefore an important component of development strategy of CISM towards tapping military sports talent in the highly potential Africa continent.

CISM Africa Development (CAD)was established in 2006. The idea of setting up the CAD in Africa was muted during the 3rd World Military Games in Italy, 2003, Kenya delegates playing a key role in the initiative .The idea was further developed during the 2004 CISM Annual General Assembly in Guinea Conakry and unanimously endorsed by the 2005 CISM AGA in Cyprus.

The aims of the CAD are:
a. Conducting high profile technical courses in Boxing and Athletics in order to enhance performance and increase participation in high profile events.
b.To stimulate and facilitate sports research prospects.
c. Encourage cooperation with Government agencies and institutions, Universities, National and International Sport Federations towards development of sports towards a common goal.
d. Foster peace, solidarity and esprit de corps among Member States through sports.
e. Maintain constant rapport and communication with CISM and Member States.
f. To stimulate and seek in-depth and specialized knowledge and skills from the institution of higher learning (Universities) through their incorporation and partnership.
g. To serve as a means vehicle for promotion of CISM ideals, principles and procedures for better sport management and performance within the military.

The CAD training normally covers the following topics:

  • Skill training
  • Specific Build-up training
  • Fitness training for sportsmen
  • Pedagogy
  • Principles of Instruction and Methodology
  • Sports Science – Anatomy, Physiology and Exercise Physiology
  • Biomechanics
  • Basic rules and regulations of sport
  • Dietary issues in sports
  • First Aid
  • CISM ideals

The centre has hosted four courses in Boxing coaching and this year’s course will be the third in Athletics coaching.

The planning of the CAD course is once again being undertaken by the stakeholders’ working group comprising the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF), Kenyatta University, Kenya Sports Stadia Management Board and CISM Kenya Secretariat with close support and guidance from the CISM Hqs and the Kenya Ministry of State for Defense. The team is working under the Chairmanship and guidance of Kenya’s Chief delegate, Lt Gen Jack Tuwei. The working group’s continued commitment towards the realization of the CAD has been commendable.

Participants will graduate with an International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF) World class coaching certificate, as a result of the very fruitful synergy between CAD stakeholders and IAAF. The course instructors are also seconded to CISM by IAAF and are usually senior IAAF International Instructors.

Participants will not only study and train, but they will be availed an opportunity to sample the rich Kenyan culture, its people and world renowned wildlife.

CISM Kenya – Proud host of the CISM African Development Centre
4th CAD Boxing Course for Coaches – Nairobi – 2-16 Nov 2009

The Republic of Kenya is a country in East Africa. Lying along the Indian Ocean, at the equator, Kenya is bordered by Ethiopia (north), Somalia (northeast), Tanzania (south), Uganda plus Lake  Victoria (west), and Sudan (northwest). The capital city is Nairobi.
The country is named after Mount Kenya, a significant landmark and the second among the highest mountain peaks of Africa. Kenya became an independent republic on 12 December 1963 after decades of colonialism as “British East African Protectorate”
Kenya is active in several sports, among them cricket, rallying, football (soccer), rugby union and boxing. But the country is known chiefly for its dominance in Middle-distance and long-distance athletics. Kenya has consistently produced Olympic champions in various distance events, especially in 800 m, 1,500 m, 3,000 m steeplechase, 5,000 m, 10,000 m and the marathons. Kenyan athletes continue to dominate the world of distance running, although competition from Morocco and Ethiopia has reduced this supremacy.
Kenya and CISM
Kenya joined CISM in 1994 and from that moment on, kept on regularly participating in the CISM life by taking part in continental and world events of CISM. One of the milestones of the CISM Kenya history was the organization of the 1st CISM African Military Games in Nairobi in 2002. Kenya was also the host nation of the ECALO Liaison Office during 8 years (2001-2008).
But, in CISM, Kenya is also famous for being the host nation of the CISM African Regional Development Centre (CAD).
More than 4 years ago, when CISM developed the philosophy of this Centre, the initial objectives of this RDC were and are still:

  • 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

4th CAD Boxing course
From 2 to 16 last November, Kenya organized the 4th CAD Boxing Coaches course in the “Moi International Sports Centre” in Nairobi. This is already the 6th International Boxing

Course organized by the CAD in 4 years. Till today, the CAD has conducted 6 courses for a total of 121 participants coming from 19 different countries from the whole African continent.

Over these 10 days, some 20 coaches from 8 countries will get a theoretical and practical course given by one of the most famous boxing coach from all over the world, Professor Ruben Sanchez, from Cuba, assisted with a team of highly educated instructors from the Kenyatta university of Nairobi.

The President of the Kenyan Boxing Association, Mr Samson Muchaga Mwangi officially opened the course with a very enthusiastic speech about the positive synergies around the CAD CISM in Kenya. He then had a very promising commitment to officially propose AIBA, the International Boxing Association to become a integrated partner of the CAD for Boxing. Let us wish him good luck in his attempts. More than 18 different topics linked to the preparation of the military boxers were broached during this course. Among others, the participants were professionally addressed on items such as the bandaging techniques, the principles of fitness adapted to boxing, the psychological readiness of the competitors, etc.

The participants joined the practice to the theory at the Sports Stadium of Kenyatta University for a targeted fitness tests which included PE exercises such as upper body strength test, Shoulder Bridge, Low back applied flexibility…and many more.
 

KARIBU KENYA BWANA SECRETARY GENERAL!!
In Kiswahili language, which is the National language spoken in Kenya, This means ‘Welcome to Kenya Mr. Secretary General.
The CISM Secretary General Col Alexandre Morisod literally landed running for this short but important visit to the home of the first CISM Development Centre, the CISM Africa Development Centre (CAD).

He started his busy schedule with a courtesy visit to the Chief of Kenyan Delegation Lt Gen Jack Tuwei, who is also the Chairman of the CAD Management Board at his office at the Kenya Army Headquarters. He pledged his support and that of CISM Kenya in his endeavors and wished him well in all that he would undertake.

On his part, COL Morisod thanked CISM Kenya under Lt Gen Tuwei’s leadership and the Kenya Armed Forces for having successfully run the CISM Africa Development Centre (CAD) ensuring an additional four year extension. He noted the need for synergy between the CISM, CISM Kenya, and the National and international federations. This would ensure recognition, support, and therefore success in CISM projects. Col Morisod also impressed on Kenya and other CISM member Nations in the region to support CISM by hosting CISM activities.

Col Morisod paid a visit to the CAD at the Moi International Sports Centre in the outskirts of Nairobi, where he met and mingled with participants who are currently in Kenya for the 4TH CAD Boxing Coaches Course. He had occasion to address them and to get their views on the course. In his address, Col Morisod implored participants to practice what they had learned in the promotion of boxing in their countries. The participants thanked CISM for the noble idea of having the CAD in Africa for it had immensely played a big part in the already visible changes in boxing in Africa.   He also sat through a practical lesson where he had a chance to see first hand what the course entails.
