EUF Train the Trainer - Training Unit Template


  • Standardized Training Structure in order to have more people able to deliver a good beginner training
  • Pedagogical methods in order to run beginner trainings


The European Ultimate Federation - Train the Trainer (TtT) Level 1 - program is targeted to anyone that wants to learn trainings methods and structures in order to run demonstration trainings in schools or beginner trainings in after school programs or in clubs.
The first edition took place in 2017, strongly based on the Trainer Certification Manual and Methodology of the Federazione Italiana Flying Disc (FIFD) . Since then the program evolved a lot thanks to the contributions of various experts from Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland and the United Kingdom.
