Are you club coach certified?
Athletics Canada values the dedication coaches put in to supporting athletes Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) and creating a safe and positive environment to excel. Beginning in 2020, Athletics Canada will require all coaches participating at the Canadian Championship events to be NCCP Club Coach Certified.

A date for the course will be established and posted online.
Aboriginal Coaching Module
The professional development of Aboriginal coaches through NCCP certification has been identified by the Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) as a national priority. In order to educate and promote the value of the NCCP and to establish meaningful participation of Aboriginal peoples in this national program, the ASC embarked on a multi-year process to develop supplemental training material for Aboriginal coaches taking NCCP workshops. The result of this process is the Aboriginal Coaching Modules (ACM), which responds to the need for a national training curriculum with content that reflects the uniqueness of Aboriginal cultures, values, and lifestyles.
The ACM is a professional development training tool for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal coaches who coach Aboriginal athletes, as they become certified through the NCCP. To learn more about when the next ACM’s are, please e-mail: email@example.com.
The Next ACM is Scheduled for Sunday, September 15th from 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM at the Canada Games Sport for Life Centre (Basement Theater).
