Coaches are mentors, motivators and leaders. Along with parents and teachers, coaches have a profound impact on the future of our children. It’s a great responsibility, and Canada’s two million coaches embrace it with passion and dedication.

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) gives coaches the confidence to succeed. When you take an NCCP workshop, you’ll not only gain sport-specific technical abilities, but also leadership and decision-making skills.

To start on your pathway to certification visit the NCCP online at
