The Certified Leadership Course (CLC) will be delivered in English, with an Arabic translator on-hand to ensure all participants are ably supported to learn as much as possible. Exposing trainees to the fundamentals of Sport for All development, the CLC is designed to promote Sport for All and physical activity in the Kingdom, while providing a platform for debate, knowledge and experience-sharing, and networking. 


The program is fully geared towards the development and strengthening of the Saudi Sport for All movement, in addition to building the capacity of national, regional, and grassroots organizations. 


All in all, the CLC will help to showcase research and development in the Sport for All and physical activity sector, equipping attending leaders and managers with all-important tools. It will train and qualify men and women, priming them for further success as impactful changemakers committed to spurring the Kingdom’s sporting transformation. 


The course will cover seven main topics, of which include: “The Global Philosophy of the Sport for All movement and TAFISA”, “Sport for All in Saudi Arabia”, and “Sport for All Programs and Events Management”. The course will also cover “Target Groups & Settings in Sport for All”, “Marketing and Public Relations in Sport for All”, “Leadership and Management in Sport for All”, and “Strategy Development in Sport for All”.


Prospective participants will be able to register for the CLC from 2 October 2022. Registration closes on 2 November 2022. 


Shaima Alhusseini, Managing Director of the Saudi Sports for All Federation said: “We are delighted to be hosting the TAFISA Certified Leadership Course in Sport for All again. Last year’s course proved incredibly instructive, offering invaluable guidance and support to our growing community of sports leaders. This year’s program, which will enable participants to learn in-person, is set advance our efforts to help more people participate in daily physical activities.”


The launch of the CLC underlines SFA’s commitment to providing more access to quality sports provisions, facilities, and resources. In line with the goals of Vision 2030 and the Quality-of-Life Program, the CLC will contribute to SFA’s work to increase physical activity levels in the Kingdom to 40 percent.
