The Importance of NCCP Accredited Coaches

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.

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.

What is the NCCP?

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
  • provide opportunities for participants to achieve their full potential in and through sport.

All Seaway Surge Rep Level coaches attain full NCCP accreditation.
