The Coaching Context

The National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) in Canada is a competency-based sport coach education program. Coaches in the ACD are growing and evolving the five NCCP core competencies of valuing, interacting, leading, problem solving and critical thinking throughout their two-years in the program. ACD coaches are assessed quite regularly on their ability to apply evidence-based content to their unique coaching context. The Advanced Coach Diploma is the pinnacle of learning and certification in the Competition stream. Coaches interested in applying to the program should be Competition Development Trained, In Training or Certified.
