Attention all instructors and anyone interested in coaching,
Please see the attached notice and schedule from Sport PEI on upcoming NCCP Courses:
Please see attached the core NCCP Multi-sport coaching course calendar. Our athletes are our most precious resource in sport on PEI and no one is in a better position to develop this resource than qualified and trained coaches. We are proud to offer these programs to Island coaches and look forward to seeing more and more coaches taking these training opportunities.
At Sport PEI we believe that competent and ethical coaches are essential to the provision of a safe and positive sport environment. Coaches that take NCCP training develop their competency and learn how to make ethical decisions. We believe this is important because:
- Earning public trust obligates coaches to meet established standards for safety, ethical behaviour, and competency.
- Standards allow individuals, families, and communities to identify and select competent and ethical coaches who will protect the physical and psychological safety of participants and athletes.
- The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is the Canadian standard of coaching competency.
New NCCP Programs this year!
1- Sport specific modules: If your sport needs a specific module (i.e. – Making Ethical Decisions, etc…) we can send out one of our Learning Facilitators to your choice of site to run the module for your sport group. We can customize this training based on your sport group’s needs. Minimum of 6 participants needed.
2- Rural NCCP training modules: If your sport or area needs Multi-sport training in a rural area, we can send out one of our Learning Facilitators to your community to run the module(s) you need. Minimum of 6 participants needed.
We are able to offer these courses at such a reasonable cost because of the gracious support and funding of the Department of Sport, Recreation and Healthy Living of the Government of Prince Edward Island. We thank the department for their ongoing support of our programs.
