Maintenance of Certification

The National Coaching Certification Program was launched in 1974 to give coaches the confidence to succeed. The program has constantly evolved over the years to stay at the forefront of delivering programs that respect the principles and science of Long-term Athlete Development, while also reflecting the changes within sports — from the science of training, to competition strategy and tactics, to the athletes themselves.

The Coaches Association of Ontario and its partners recognizes the value of having certified NCCP coaches that are engaged in Professional Development programs which reinforce the values of lifelong learning and sharing amongst the coaching community.
