Coach

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) educates and certifies Canadian Coaches in the art, science and skills of sport coaching. Each sport has a unique coach education pathway. Some coach education pathways require only sport-specific NCCP courses, although most also include NCCP courses that are relevant for all sports (multi-sport modules). Check your sport education pathway to determine which courses are required for NCCP certification in your sport. If you have an NCCP number, learn about your sport’s coach education pathway on The Locker.  If you require assistance please contact your Provincial Sport Organization, or our Athlete & Coach Services Coordinator.
