Croatian Olympic Academy

The Croatian Olympic Academy (COA) was founded following the decision of the Croatian Olympic Committee Council on 27 June 1996 in compliance with the provisions of the IOC Olympic Charter, that is, with the NOC tasks to promote the basic principles of Olympism at the national level.

The Croatian Olympic Academy acted as a Croatian Olympic Committee body until 2003, when it was registered as a public non-profit institution in accordance with the Croatian Institutions Act.
