The individuals who support ACD coach-learners in the program are coach developers with extensive experience leading, mentoring and building the sport landscape in Canada and beyond. Each coach in the program engages in meaningful conversations with their mentor both one-on-one and in a small group. The mentor supported layer of our coaches’ program is described as “invaluable, inimitable and gold” by coaches. Our multi-sport mentors support and challenge each member of our structured learning community throughout the two-year program. Coaches in our program also have the opportunity to collaborate with their NSO for a sport specific mentor to satisfy the requirements on their way to certification.
