Why Do I Need Training?

It Begins Here

Coaches are mentors, motivators and leaders. Along with parents and teachers, coaches have a profound impact on the future of our athletes. It’s a great responsibility, and Canada’s two million coaches embrace it with passion and dedication.

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), launched in 1974 and delivered in partnership with the government of Canada, provincial/territorial governments, and national/provincial/territorial sport organizations, gives coaches the confidence to succeed.

When you take an NCCP workshop, you’ll not only gain sport-specific technical abilities, but also leadership and decision-making skills. NCCP training will open doors to new opportunities in coaching and in life.

Who is it for?

NCCP workshops are designed for all types of coaches. Whether you’re thinking about coaching your child’s community team or you’re already the head coach of a national team, the NCCP has workshops to meet your needs.
