What are NOCs and NPCs?
National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) are the national organisations responsible for the selection, preparation and management of their respective teams.
The NOC for Great Britain is the British Olympic Association, the NPC is the British Paralympic Association.
National Olympic Committee and National Paralympic Committee relations
Planning is already underway to ensure the 2012 Games are a great experience for those taking part.
We have established a team to liaise with National Olympic Committees (NOCs) and National Paralympic Committees (NPCs).
They are currently developing the Pre-Games Training Camp Guide – which will showcase UK-wide training facilities for all NOCs and NPCs.
This will be launched at the Beijing 2008 Games. Over 750 facilities have registered their interest to be included in the Guide and these will be reviewed and assessed before selection is made of suitable facilities.
The London 2012 NOC and NPC Relations team will play a central role in ensuring UK training camps are fit for purpose.
They are also developing a policy regarding the funds that will be available to each NOC and NPC to contribute to the use of approved Pre-Games Training Camps
. More details of this offer will be released in the coming months.
LOCOG have already hosted a number of NOC visits and look forward to hearing from any other NOCs and NPCs who would like to visit London and meet with colleagues at LOCOG.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss a potential visit. Read the guidelines for NOCs and NPCs who would like to visit London (PDF, 21kb)
