NCCP Updates

Athletics Canada is in the process of setting up our Athletics NCCP course content online. They will be providing some quick training/orientation for Learning Facilitators and then setting up a substantial schedule of online modules. 

As a result, Athletics MB is temporarily suspending our coach education opportunities. We are going to cancel the proposed Club Coach training (originally scheduled for April 21+23) and reschedule new training opportunities in May once the full content migration is completed! We’ll share/update the full online schedule once it’s been finalized.
