Coaches in Canadian Sport: Sport plays an important role in the lives of many Canadians. Quality coaching is key to a positive sport experience for participants. Sport, government, and business leaders recommend that all coaches become trained and certified in the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) to ensure that the sport experience of every participant is a good one.

What is the NCCP? The NCCP is a collaborative program of the Government of Canada, the provincial/territorial governments, the national/provincial/territorial sport federations, and the Coaching Association of Canada. The NCCP is a training and certification program for coaches, offered across Canada in more than 60 sports. The program was designed to meet the needs of a wide range of coaches – from those who introduce youngsters to sport to those who work with Canada’s high performance athletes. Since its inception, more than 875,000 coaches have taken part in NCCP activities that have helped them to develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required to coach effectively. The NCCP prepares coaches to better meet the needs of all participants in sport, provide a positive sport experience to participants, and provide opportunities for participants to achieve their full potential in and through sport. A program in transition The NCCP is currently undergoing a transition to a competency-based approach, in which a coach is trained and may achieve certification to coach a specific type of participant in a particular coaching environment.
