CDPD Weekend

Coach Developer Professional Development Weekend (CDPD)

Each year in October, CAO recognizes and says thanks at CDPD Weekend to all of our Coach Developers for all of the commitment, hard work and passion they show towards coach development.

The weekend provides an opportunity for multisport and sport-specific Learning Facilitators, Coach Evaluators and Master Coach Developers to come together for 2 days of professional development, networking and much more!

Stay tuned for new information about CDPD 2020 coming soon!

CDPD 2019

CDPD 2019 was held at Brookstreet Hotel in Ottawa, with over 100 coaches in attendance!

Some of the highlights included our Safe Sport panel, which brought together world-renowned safe sport experts Dr Gretchen Kerr, Dr Kristian Goulet and the Coaching Association of Canada’s CEO Lorraine Lafreniere to discuss everything from Concussion and Abuse to Respect in Sport.

We also celebrated Patsy Pike, who was recognized by the Coaching Association of Canada as one of the country’s most outstanding NCCP Coach Developers. Patsy has been working across Eastern Ontario in coaching for more than three decades and her devotion to educating National Coaching Certification Program coaches is truly best in class. Congratulations Patsy and thanks for everything you do to make sport a better place in Ontario!
