Three-time teqball world champion Ádám Blázsovics has completed a coaching course to promote the International Federation of Teqball's (FITEQ) new online education platform.
Launched last month, the resource is designed to support the development of athletes, coaches and referees.
FITEQ also hopes it will assist in growing the sport of teqball.
The Hungarian Blázsovics and doubles partner Csaba Bányik, with whom he won a world title in 2019, have completed the FITEQ Coaching Course Level Intro.
Both Blázsovics and Bányik deliver training sessions at Phoenix Teqball Academy in Budapest, as well as playing for the club.
"In my opinion, it's really important to deliver well-planned training sessions," Blázsovics said.
"If we don't follow our own training plans, it becomes really hard to go step-by-step systematically."
Blázsovics is the reigning singles and doubles world champion, having won those titles in 2019.
There will be no 2020 Teqball World Championships owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
The FITEQ Coaching Course Level Intro can be undertaken free of charge and is open to all.
Bányik hopes more players will now follow suit.
"In such a fast-growing sport like teqball, the players need to improve very quickly to keep pace with the top players," Bányik said.
"To achieve this, it's undoubtedly a necessity to have highly qualified coaches who are also willing to learn.
"I really hope that many more players undertake this online course so they gain transferable knowledge for their future coaching activities."
