NCCP

Being a coach takes passion and dedication. Being a great coach, however, requires additional guidance and support.

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) was developed by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) and its partners. The program targets 67 different sports, in both official languages, and is the recognized standard for coach training and certification in Canada. NCCP workshops are designed to meet the needs of all coaches, from the first-time community coach to the head coach of a national team. Each year, more than 50,000 coaches sign up for NCCP workshops. Since the program began, more than 1 million coaches have participated, making it one of the largest adult education programs in Canada. The NCCP consists of three streams and a total of eight “contexts”, each with its own coaching requirements. Each sport is responsible for identifying how many of the eight contexts are relevant to them. As part of the program, all coaches (regardless of sport or context) are trained in ethical decision-making and sport safety.
