The EHF RINCK Convention is an agreement which has been signed by 42 handball federations across Europe, aimed at coordinating and mutually recognising standard guidelines and certificates for coaches’ education. It was named after the first Methods Commission chairman Claude Rinck.
The convention was originally signed in 2000 by six signatories – the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Hungary, Germany and Russia – with the rest coming on board since then.
The convention creates standard guidelines for coaches’ education in Europe, while preserving and safeguarding the regional and national characteristics of coaches’ education. It allows for federations to share documents and development tools, enabling them to adapt their domestic coach education programmes in line with international standards.
In the 22 years since the convention was first drawn up, the EHF has continuously developed its programmes to ensure that innovation and development are always part of any coach education system.
In 2012, the EHF introduced the Master Coach and Licensing Course, which has since become simply the Master Coach Course. Every second year coaches from across the continent can sign up to the programme, which consists of three modules throughout the year focused on areas such as match analysis, practical coaching as well as leadership and management.
