The Master in Coaching Amsterdam at Johan Cruyff Institute is developed for everybody who seeks self-knowledge and self-development with the aim to improve oneself as a (sport) coach and/or manager.


This 7 month Master in Coaching Amsterdam program at Johan Cruyff Institute is based on the vision of Johan Cruyff in which sport coaching is more than using tactical and technical knowledge. It is about yourself, the players & staff, the team and the environment. We believe that you can only coach others if you know how to coach yourself.

Each participant’s personal background is a base for further development and better understanding of oneself as a coach and/or manager. The principle of coaching is that you then apply this insight knowledge in counseling others. A personal coach will guide you in the process of realizing your personal goals for becoming a better coach, manager and/or person.
