DLV-Academy [DLV-Akademie] and DLV-International Coaching Academy [DLV-Auslandstrainerakademie]

The DLV-Academy was founded in 1995. It offers excellent opportunities in basic and further education for both DLV coaches and employees. Moreover, it serves as a communications and discussion forum for all specific issues of German and international athletics.

The DLV-Academy is the central point of contact for all athletics coaches who seek professional advice or who are looking for opportunities in basic and further education – of course, also in the field of international sports promotion. 


DLV-International Coaching Academy – international sports promotion in cooperation with the Federal Foreign Office

Since the beginning of the 1970s the German athletics association "Deutscher Leichtathletik-Verband" has been promoting sports and, in particular, athletics in developing countries – promoted by the Federal Foreign Office. The founding fathers of the DLV-International Coaching Academy considered the education of coaches, mentors and other multipliers, the support with technical literature and the sports-academically, sports-medically and coaching-methodically counselling to be just as important as the basic knowledge transfer to supervisors and officials from developing countries in order to facilitate the organisation of sports events.  


DLV-Online-Academy [DLV-Online-Akademie] for members and graduates of the DLV-International Coaching Academy

In cooperation with the Federal Foreign Office and the Deutscher Leichtathletik-Verband, the DLV-Academy offers exclusive digital teaching media and a communications platform to participants of the current educational programme as well as to former graduates. They will have the opportunity to sign up for the DLV-Online Academy, to expand their knowledge by using blended-learning- and e-learning-systems, to get to know each other and to exchange views and ideas.
