What is the NCCP?
BNS fully supports and encourages all our coaches to become a fully certified NCCP coach.
The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is an educational program aimed at upgrading the ability of coaching in Canada. It caters to the needs of all coaches, from the novice to master, and is available in both French and English.
The NCCP provides for five levels of certification. The first three levels, geared towards the coaches of developing athletes, are structured into three components:
- THEORY general principles of coaching
- TECHNICAL sport skills and techniques
- PRACTICAL evaluation of coaching experience
